PSG prepare to join the ranks of Europe's Elite

Paris Saint-Germain had not really been considered among Europe's true elite before now, but has their defeat of Chelsea changed all that?

Late Pastore goal leaves Chelsea stunned in Paris

Javier Pastore scored a late solo goal to leave Chelsea's Champions League hopes in severe danger as they lost 3-1 at the Parc des Princes.


Luiz own goal gives PSG the lead

Paris Saint-Germain lead Chelsea, 2-1, at the Park des Princes and it's David Luiz's doing. The Brazilian committed a foul to give PSG a free kick, then he put that free kick into his own net to gift the home side a goal.

Luiz's biggest mistake in the sequence came with the foul. He needlessly took down Blaise Matuidi when the PSG player was nearing the corner flag and in no way a threat.

The foul allowed Ezequiel Lavezzi to get his chance on a free kick and that's when things turned sour for Chelsea.

It wasn't a bad play by Luiz -- it would have been nearly impossible for him to turn the ball away from goal -- but that kind of misfortune after he gave away the free kick will not make him the most popular man at Stamford Bridge.


Ibra subbed off injured vs. Chelsea

Paris Saint-Germain lost their top player, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, when he pulled up against Chelsea.


Oscar draws pen, Hazard converts to equalize

Chelsea have equalized Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes, but it didn't come without controversy as Thiago Silva was whistled for a penalty, which Eden Hazard converted. Oscar drew the penalty, using his first touch to put the ball past Silva before being taken down by the PSG defender.

There is some question as to whether the referee got the call right, but it appears as if Silva never gets to the ball and clearly takes Oscar out, making it a penalty. Regardless, it is a silly challenge by Silva, going in on that kind of tackle in the box when Oscar isn't in an incredible dangerous position. That one of the world's best defenders would make such a stupid play is dumbfounding.


Lavezzi scores after just 3 minutes

It took Paris Saint-Germain all of three minutes to score on Chelsea and it was all thanks to Ezequiel Lavezzi. The forward was able to corral an attempted clearance with his chest and fire it into the top corner for the tally.

Okay, maybe it wasn't all Lavezzi. John Terry's horrendous header helped out, but having to chest it down and then put it on goal with the ball behind you isn't nearly as easy as Lavezzi made it look.

Now Chelsea find themselves a goal down without a single recognized striker. Andre Schurrle is playing striker for them today, making a comeback awfully difficult, but if they can sort out the defense, they would probably be pleased with just a 1-0 deficit going back to London for the second leg.
