Samuel Eto’o has played his way into shape for Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League quarterfinal second leg between Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, and will earn the start for Jose Mourinho’s side.

Mourinho has given himself plenty of insurance should Eto’o fail, with forwards Demba Ba and Fernando Torres on the bench along with Andre Schurrle, who started in last week’s first leg.

For PSG, it’ll be Edinson Cavani as the No. 1 attacking option with Zlatan Ibrahimovic nursing an injury.
