Guus Hiddink wants under-fire pair Diego Costa and Eden Hazard to send Chelsea into the Champions League quarter-finals at the expense of Paris St Germain on Wednesday night.

PSG's social media team upped the ante on the eve of the last-16 second leg at Stamford Bridge with a video montage of masked super heroes titled 'Spot the fraud', which also included Costa, who has been playing with a protective mask due to a broken nose.

PSG boss Laurent Blanc also warned his players not to be provoked by Costa, who has a reputation for riling opponents.

Costa, available after missing last Saturday's draw with Stoke as a precaution over a minor tendon problem, has scored 10 goals in 14 games under Hiddink, but has just one Champions League goal in two seasons and 14 games with the Blues.

"I'm very proud of him the way he's playing and, going not over the edge, but he likes to fight in the real way of the game," Hiddink said.

"That's what we like. I protect him and support him when he's doing what he has done in my period at Chelsea.

"In the Premier League he frequently is scoring now, since December, January. Let's see and hope he can make it to the European level as well."
