PSG battle Valencia scare

Paris Saint-Germain advanced to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday after a 1-1 draw with Valencia at the Parc des Princes allowed them to progress 3-2 on aggregate.

They had to survive something of a scare, however, with Jonas putting the visitors in front on the night 10 minutes into the second half. Valencia had looked scratchy when they were 2-0 down going into the final minute of the first leg last month, but after pulling a late goal back there, Jonas’ strike left them needing just one more to complete a remarkable turnaround.

Alas, it was not to be for the Spaniards, as Lavezzi who had also scored at the Mestalla. PSG secured the last eight berth for the first time since 1995.

Veteran David Beckham, meanwhile started on the bench and thats where he stayed for the remaining 90 minutes.
