Chelsea vs Paris St-Germain takes place on Wednesday night in a massive Champions League clash as the best teams in Europe look to push for a place in the semi finals.

Today's first leg match up will start at 7.45 p.m. BST (2.45 p.m. ET) and can be watched online through live stream – free for subscribers – via the link provided below.

In team news, striker Fernando Torres is set to start in attack for the Blues. Samuel Eto'o is out injured, and that should make way for the Spanish striker to make an impact on Europe's biggest stage.

In other team news for Chelsea, left-back Ashley Cole is out with a knee injury, where as Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah will also both miss today's game as they are cup-tied.

Meanwhile, for the French side, there are doubts over defender Thiago Silva after the player suffered a fractured cheekbone. However, reports have claimed that he will still be available, and will wear a mask for the game to protest his injury.

PSG will be looking to Zlatan Ibrahimovic to make the impact needed to defeat the English giants. The striker has scored a club record 40 goals in all competitions so far this season, and he will line up alongside record signing Edinson Cavani to try and put Chelsea on the back foot.

The French side have an amazing recent record at home in Europe. They have not lost in the Parc des Princes for 28 consecutive European games, and the last time they did suffer a European defeat here was way back in 2006 when they were toppled by Hapoel Tel-Aviv in a 4-2 result.

PSG manager Laurent Blanc is unfazed by lining up against Chelsea, saying, "We're going to stick to our philosophy. If we start getting scared of being hit on the break we'll play against nature and it's not going to do us any good. We know there are going to be counter-attacks and we'll get ready for that but we are not going to just defend."
