The Champions League is Europe’s biggest competition and the best teams from around the continent play in it, to be crowned as European Champions.

For the third season in a row, Chelsea play hosts to Paris Saint-Germain in the Round-of-16 stage of the Champions League. Their first meeting was back in the 2013/14, Chelsea went through on away goals after a later winner from Demba Ba.

However, it was the Parisian side that went through at the same stage a year later. An extra-time header from Thiago Silva allowed PSG to progress through on away goals. This season, the French champions hold a slender lead over their English counterparts, winning 2-1 at the Parc de Princes, with John Obi Mikel grabbing a vital away goal for Chelsea.

With the return leg at Stamford Bridge taking place this evening, we take a look at five players who played for both Chelsea and PSG.
