Champions League: Chelsea can overcome PSG - Jose Mourinho

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says his side can overturn a two-goal deficit against Paris St-Germain to reach the Champions League semi-finals.

Javier Pastore's late strike gave the French side a 3-1 win in the first leg at Parc des Princes but the Portuguese boss said his side could progress.

"I believe and my players believe. That's the most important thing," said the two-time Champions League winner.

Chelsea's Samuel Eto'o could return after missing the last three matches.

Against the odds

Chelsea have only once overcome a first-leg deficit of two or more goals. The Blues beat Napoli 4-1 after extra time in the 2011-12 Champions League last 16 - having lost 3-1 away - en route to winning the trophy.

PSG's first-leg advantage meant their opponents were under more pressure to progress to the last four, added Mourinho.

"I think if Paris is knocked out it will be a big disappointment for them; if we are knocked out it's something that, in this moment, lots of people are expecting," he said.

"We have to enjoy the risk of the situation. At 9.30pm we can be out and we know that we have this risk. But at 7.45pm we have chances to be in the semi-final.

"I think we are going to win, really. In the end of the two legs, I think we are going to score more goals than them.

"In this moment it's 3-1. I think in the end it can be 4-3 or 5-4."

And Mourinho insisted his players had only have themselves to blame for their first-leg defeat.

"In Paris we would expect Paris to play very well to control the game, to have the ball, to be very dangerous," he said.

"We were dangerous to ourselves, because we scored half of the first goal, we scored the second goal and we scored the third goal.

"Plus our goal, we scored three and a half goals in that match. It was not Paris that played very well."
