David Luiz has launched a warning to his former side, Chelsea ahead of their second leg meeting on Wednesday.
According to the Evening Standard, Luiz told UEFA’s official website that he and his Paris Saint-Germain team-mates will attack from the off on Wednesday, despite holding a 2-1 lead.
It’s always difficult to play against a highly-rated attack like Chelsea’s. It’s hard not to concede… Our game philosophy is to play – to keep possession, create opportunities to score goals. We have to stick to our philosophy, and we know that for now the result is in our favour.
The French champions come into the game at Stamford Bridge with a one goal advantage thanks to goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani in Paris, either side of John Obi Mikel’s equaliser.
The meeting at Stamford Bridge is a repeat of the game that saw Chelsea eliminated last season as Jose Mourinho’s side whimpered out of the Champions League after late goals from both Luiz and his fellow defender, Thiago Silva.
Luiz admitted that on the night, he failed to control his emotions as the drama of the game got the better of him.
I had said that I wouldn’t celebrate if I scored, but I couldn’t control my emotions because of the drama of the match. To score a goal in the last few minutes to help your team, when we had been a man down since early in the game … It was very important, and it kept us in that match. But my respect, my love for Chelsea, will always be the same.
Chelsea, who hope to have Diego Costa back in time for the game, will be looking to re-write their wrongs from last season.
