Chelsea 1-1 Paris Saint Germain (3-3) : The Blues bow out



Chelsea FC 1 - 1 Paris Saint Germain: Blues bow out
Chelsea were eliminated from the Champions League on Wednesday night as 10-man Paris St Germain twice came from behind to win an ill-tempered last-16 tie on away goals at Stamford Bridge.
The first leg was drawn 1-1 and Chelsea's advantage grew when Zlatan Ibrahimovic was harshly sent off after 31 minutes.
Gary Cahill's strike nine minutes from the end of normal time was cancelled out by former Chelsea defender David Luiz, but the hosts went ahead for a second time through an Eden Hazard penalty early in extra-time.
PSG captain Thiago Silva, who conceded the spot-kick for handball, was denied from a corner by Thibaut Courtois but then netted with a header moments later to make it 2-2 on the night and send the visitors through.
The Frenchmen exited the competition last term to Chelsea on the away goals rule, but advanced to the last eight for a third straight season.
Jose Mourinho and Chelsea, meanwhile, are left to focus on their Premier League title bid.
