Chelsea make a comeback to knock PSG out of the Champions League

Demba Ba sent Chelsea to the semifinals of the Champions League scoring three minutes before time.

Chelsea needed a 2-0 victory to make it past Paris Saint-Germain, and substitute Andre Schurrle, who came in for injured Eden Hazard early in the match, opened the scoring on 32 minutes. The Blues kept pushing for a second goal and the German winger struck the bar in the second half. Oscar was close to converting a free-kick, but the bar player for the visitors again. As the game went closer to the end, Jose Mourinho introduced Demba Ba and Fernando Torres to join Samuel Eto’o in the box and the Senegalese forward hit past Salvatore Sirigu with just three minutes to go. Jose Mourinho has now guided his teams to the Champions League last four stage for five consecutive years.

Borussia Dortmund were close to sensational turnaround against Real Madrid as Marco Reus scored twice in the first half to put Carlo Ancelotti’s side on the brink of a shock at Iduna Park. Roman Weidenfeller denied Angel Di Maria’s penalty early in the match to inspire his teammates, who fought hard against the Spanish giants. However, the visitors survived in Dortmund and now wait for Friday’s draw.
