Milan - After winning the English League Cup to end a trophy drought of nearly three years, Jose Mourinho now has his sights set on joining Carlo Ancelotti and Bob Paisley as the only managers to win the Champions League or European Cup three times.
Chelsea will first have to get past Paris Saint-Germain in its last-16 tie, however. Chelsea and PSG drew their first match 1-1 last month, with Mourinho's men having the advantage of the away goal.
Since the 1-1 draw in the first leg, Chelsea has strengthened its position at the top of the Premier League and won the English League Cup, setting up the prospect of a domestic double.
Adding the Champions League title to the haul is the hardest job for Jose Mourinho, but he has already done it twice and Branislav Ivanovic's away goal in Paris three weeks ago has given Chelsea the advantage heading into the second leg.
Chelsea has midfield anchorman Nemanja Matic back from a ban, he should shrug off an ankle injury, and the squad was able to rest this weekend, having already been eliminated from the FA Cup.
PSG heads into the game full of confidence after Saturday's 4-1 home win against Caen. The team is unbeaten in 14 games.
Coach Laurent Blanc was criticized for his tactical choices last season, when PSG led 3-1 from the first leg, chose to defend and ended up losing 2-0, getting knocked out of the tournament.
"Of course we believe we can win," he said. "There's no point going there if we don't."
Blanc has urged his players to improve their finishing after they squandered chances against Caen and in the 0-0 draw away to Monaco the previous week.
"In the last two matches we've missed 10 or 12 clear-cut chances — and I mean clear-cut ones," he said.
"We won't get that many against Chelsea."
On the injury front, PSG hopes to have midfielder Yohan Cabaye available after a thigh injury.
