Chelsea knocked out by PSG


An extra-time Thiago Silva header saw Paris Saint-Germain knock Chelsea out of the Champions League and book their place in the quarter-finals by virtue of the away goals rule after a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

The French champions – reduced to 10 men after Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s controversial first-half sending off – twice came from behind in the last-16 tie, with their two away goals decisive in the 3-3 aggregate draw.

Gary Cahill opened the scoring in the 81st minute with a crisp volley, but David Luiz swiftly equalised to force extra-time, before Silva conceded a penalty by handling the ball in his own area.

Eden Hazard coolly converted the spot-kick, but PSG would not be denied and Silva atoned for his error with a superb headed goal in the 114th minute to knock the hosts out of the competition.
