"We are going to prepare well for this double confrontation, we still have a little time" Blanc said in reaction to the quarter final draw.

"Getting the return leg is a small advantage for Chelsea so we will have to make the difference at home," he told the Paris club's official website.

Paris captain Thiago Silva said he was delighted to be playing against fellow Brazilians David Luiz, Ramires, Oscar and Willian at Chelsea. "I can't wait to get there. It will be a big duel between two big clubs. And I hope that contrary to last season we can reach the semi-finals."
