Chelsea 2-0 Paris St Germain (Agg 3-3, Chelsea win on away goals) – Champions League Quarter-Finals 2nd leg – 8th April 2014
Chelsea’s forgotten man Demba Ba came off the bench on Tuesday night to net the crucial goal which fired the Blues into the last four of the Champions League.
The superb Andre Schurrle, on as a first-half sub for the injured Eden Hazard, opened the scoring on the half-hour mark while after the break, the home side pushed for the vital second goal. Both Schurrle and Oscar hit the crossbar although Edinson Cavani really should have put the tie to bed when he blasted over from close-range after a superb pass from Yohan Cabaye. But then, at the death, late sub Ba got on the end of a deflected cross to send the Stamford Bridge faithful wild. Yet another successful night for Jose Mourinho, who is closing in on yet another Champions League triumph.
