This is how it went down in Tuesday’s Champions League last 16 clash, whereby Paris Saint-Germain were hosting Chelsea in a game that ended in a 1-1 draw. Elsewhere in Ukraine Shakhtar Donetsk drew o-o with Bayern Munich.
Edinson Cavani salvaged a 1-1 draw for Paris Saint-Germain at home to Chelsea.
Ivanovic headed in on 36 minutes after Gary Cahill had helped the ball into his path to give Chelsea the lead from their first and only chance of the evening at the Parc des Princes.
Edinson Cavani replied with a header of his own in the 54th minute and PSG enjoyed the bulk of the chances but Courtois intervened time and again to keep the Premier League leaders on level terms.
Jose Mourinho’s side should now fancy their chances of progressing to the quarter-finals when the second leg comes around in London on March 11, with Paris needing to score in that game to keep the tie alive.
Xabi Alonso was sent off in his 100th Champions League game as 10-man Bayern Munich was held to a 0-0 draw by Shakhtar Donetsk in their last 16 first-leg match on Tuesday.
On a freezing night in Ukraine, Bayern had the better chances but was thwarted by determined defending from Shakhtar and some poor shooting. Both coaches said they had emphasized defense.
