Chelsea where 3-1 down after the first leg and needed to pull back PSG’s 3-1 advantage from the first match. Germany international Andre Schurrle scored Chelsea’s first goal on 32 minutes with a nice finish from just inside the penalty box.
With only minutes to go Chelsea needed a goal to secure their place in the semis and second half substitute Demba Ba, just managed to get his foot onto a deflected cross to bundled the ball home from six yards.
The Chelsea fans went crazy and manager Jose Mourinho, sprinted down the touchline similar to what he did at Old Trafford in 2004 when Porto knocked out Manchester United in the Champions League.
But this time Mourinho past on instructions to his players to see out the remaining few minutes. PSG rallied and in stoppage time goalkeeper Peter Cech was called into action and pulled off a great save from Marquinhos.
This will be Mourinho’s third Champions League semi-final as Chelsea Manager and the Chelsea fans will be hoping it will be third time lucky for the london club.
