Eto'o doubtful for Champs quarterfinal at PSG

LONDON (AP) — Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o is unlikely to recover in time from a hamstring injury to face Paris Saint-Germain next week in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals.

The Cameroon forward was hurt last weekend during a 6-0 rout of Arsenal in the English Premier League and is out of Saturday's trip to Crystal Palace. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday he does not think Eto'o will be fit for the game in Paris.
