[VIDEO] Marco Verratti: Beating Chelsea is Highlight of my PSG Career

Marco Verratti insists beating Chelsea in the first leg of last season’s Champions League quarter-final clash was the highlight of his PSG career.

The Italian midfielder in last April’s 3-1 win for the French champions at the Parc des Princes.

And it was seen as a huge result over Jose Mourinho’s men given the first leg advantage.

Chelsea did recover to win 2-0 in the return leg to advance to the semi-finals – but Verratti still looks back fondly on his side’s big win.

I have great memories of a lot of matches.

We’ve won two championships, the Coupe de la Ligue and two Trophee des Champions.

But the match which made the most impression on me was the Champions League quarter-final first leg against Chelsea at the Parc des Princes.

With Chelsea and PSG to square off again this season – this time in the last 16 – Verratti must be aiming to create more good memories against the English outfit.
