PSG will not sit back against Chelsea, vows Blanc

The manager says that the Ligue 1 champions plan to impose themselves at Stamford Bridge - even though they lead 3-1 on aggregate from the Champions League quarter-final first leg
Laurent Blanc says Paris Saint-Germain have no intention of sitting back and trying to defend their two-goal advantage when they face Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The French champions lead 3-1 after last week's first leg at Parc des Prince and are therefore in the enviable position of being able to invite the Blues onto them before striking on the counter-attack.

However, Blanc insists that PSG's plan is to prove themselves a major European force by taking the game to their hosts.

"We will not rely on the fact that the [scoreline] is in our favour," the former France international told reporters on Monday.

"We are going to have to have a great game. Chelsea are going to come at us, looking to level the aggregate score - this should give us chances ... not that we will sit back and endure the match.

"We want to impose our game even though we are away from home. Our aim has become very high. On the domestic front we want to win it all, but our ultimate ambition now is to win the Champions League.

"If we are to be a big European team we need to impose our rhythm and set the tempo of the game both at home and away."
