PSG vs. Chelsea, Champions League: Second Half Thread

Shaun Botterill

Chelsea got off to the worst start possible but have slowly grown into the match to make it at least an even contest both in the balance of play and on the score sheet.

Our usual strength, the center of defense has been shaky, Petr Cech and John Terry conspiring to gift a chance to Lavezzi who made no mistake.  The pair's subsequent shakiness (we could lump Gary Cahill in there, too) has been responsible for several more heart-stopping moments as well.

Further forward, Chelsea have looked better, although whatever Andre Schurrle's playing is not really a center forward.  It's almost a strikerless formation with the four attacking midfielders switching and running about wherever they please.  It has had moments of working, mostly thanks to Willian though the others have been no slouches either.  Eden Hazard is in fact highly unlucky not to have a brace by now.

In midfield, Ramires and David Luiz are coping, though it's not anywhere near comfortably.  Ramires looks more likely to collect a second yellow than to complete a pass at the moment.

Still, we have the away goal.  We just have to keep it tight and play smart.  We got this.
