The Ligue 1 leaders have suffered a further blow with the news Thiago Motta will also miss the first leg against the Catalan giants at the Parc des Princes next week with injury
Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has apologised for his comments about France.
The Swede was derogatory towards the nation, adding '(they) don't even deserve PSG', when walking off the pitch after his side's defeat to to Bordeaux at the weekend.
Ibrahimovic said on his Instagram account: "Regarding my comments after tonight's game; they were not against France or the French people.
"I spoke about football. I lost the game, I accept that but I can't accept when the referee doesn't follow the rules. It's not the first time and I'm sick of it.
"My sincere apologies if anyone was offended or took it the wrong way."
Paris St Germain will not be able to overturn Zlatan Ibrahimovic's red card despite Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho calling on the European governing body to cancel the dismissal.
UEFA has announced that referees' decisions are viewed as final unless it is a case of mistake identity.
PSG head coach Laurent Blanc said the club would consider making an appeal but UEFA's position means Ibrahimovic will be suspended for at least one match as a result of his red card which was shown for a foul on Chelsea midfielder Oscar.
A UEFA spokesman pointed to its disciplinary regulations which state: "Decisions taken by the referee on the field of play are final and may not be reviewed by the UEFA disciplinary bodies."
Mourinho said after the 2-2 draw which saw PSG win on away goals that he "hopes UEFA can minimise the mistake".
He said: "He would tell me if there was a reason for a red card. He was very disappointed. If that's the case I hope they can minimise the mistake and let him play in the quarter-finals because if he did nothing wrong he deserves that."
Blanc said after the game: "There will be a committee who will convene to talk about the decision and I hope he will be in our party for the quarter-final."
Paris Saint-Germain skipper Thiago Silva believes Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho showed a lack of respect for the French side.
Silva scored a late equaliser on Wednesday night to ensure the French champions progressed on away goals at Chelsea's expense.
"I think Mourinho did not have enough respect for us," Silva told French TV channel Canal Plus.
"This goal is not personal revenge even if there are people have talked a lot, saying they were happy to face Paris."
David Luiz has apologised for celebrating his goal against former club Chelsea on Wednesday night.
The Brazilian defender scored a late equaliser in normal time, to send the game into extra-time.
Paris Saint-Germain progressed on away goals, as the game ended 2-2 after 120 minutes at Stamford Bridge.
"It was good for me to score. I said before I didn't celebrate but there as so much emotion I cannot control (it) and sorry because I celebrated because of the emotion but I am so happy to qualify," Luiz told Sky Sports
Prior to the tie, Luiz said: "I want to do my best for my team but if I score against Chelsea I don't celebrate out of respect."
