PSG Stamford Bridge

With ten men and coming twice from behind in the scoreline. This is how PSG did it. 2-2 at Stamford Bridge, with extra-time included, against Mouriho's Chelsea. An incredible header from Thiago Silva decided the match in the minute 114. 

How it happened

Great star by PSG that tried to score from the first moment, but Laurent Blanc's team first attacks that didn't worked. In the 30th minute, referee Bjoern Kuipers showed a red card to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, that had fouled Oscar. It was a decision really hard to take by the French side, that had to play with 10 men during the majority of the match.

However, Blanc's men continued playing with great pace and attacking Mourinho's side, that seemed happy with the 0-0. Cavani hit the post before half time in the most clear chance for the Uruguayan during the whole night. Then, in the second half, Cahill scored the first in the 81th minute taking advantatge from a rebound inside the area. When the match was about to finish, David Luiz forced the extra time with an incredible header.

Extra time

30 minutes extra to decide the match. Didi Drogba was the chosen one for Mourinho to look for the decider but in the end it was Hazard who scored the 2-1, after a penalty committed by Thiago Silva. Without the option to bring the match to penalties, it was all or nothing for PSG. The same man that comitted the penalty mistake, the Brazilian centre-back Thiago Silva, was in end the heroe. When there were only 6 minutes remaining, Silva scored the 2-2 with a beautiful header and qualified the French for the Champions League quarterfinals.
