Paris Saint-Germain vs. Barcelona, 2013 UEFA Champions League: Zlatan pulls PSG level

Just when it looked like Paris Saint-Germain weren't going to score, Zlatan Ibrahimovic put home a rebound off the post and pulled them even at 1-1 with 10 minutes left to play.

Thiago Silva sent a powerful header off a free kick on goal that bounced off the near post and popped back out in front of Victor Valdés. Zlatan was all over the ball and easily put the rebound past Valdés to even the match at 1-1.

Barcelona will be furious with the officials after they see the replay of the goal though as Zlatan was miles offside on the initial header by Silva and the goal never should have counted. Those are the breaks but it won't make Tito Vilanova and company feel any better as their lead evaporated.

No doubt Zlatan and PSG fans won't care one bit about the missed call as they will feel their side deserved a goal on the day. Considering all the wasted chances in the first half, they might have a point.
