Chelsea's Champions League matchup with Paris Saint-Germain was billed as a clash of the egos: Jose Mourinho versus Zlatan Ibrahimovic. In the end, neither had an evening they will be keen to remember.
The Blues' manager watched his side capitulate to a well-organised possession-hungry PSG side, and decided not to play any strikers at all until Fernando Torres made a second half substitute appearance. Ibra, on the other hand, barely had an impact on the game, managing just one off-target shot, as per WhoScored.com.
PSG deserved the 3-1 victory, but Chelsea will be kicking themselves for letting Javier Pastore wade through the defence to score in the 90th minute.
At the evening of the 2013 Champions League Final, I stuck my neck out to predict that PSG would make the 2014 final. Based on this season's European form, this bold forecast is still looking healthy.
Could they go all the way this year? Let us know in the comments.
