PSG, Bayern join Real, Porto in Champions League last eight

Ten-man Paris Saint-Germain sensationally came from behind twice to dump Chelsea out of the Champions League on away goals after extra time as Bayern Munich also qualified for the quarter-finals with a 7-0 rout of ten-man Shakhtar Donetsk.

Held 1-1 in their last 16, first leg tie at Parc des Princes, the Parisians needed an exploit to get past Chelsea on Wednesday, and they achieved just that in the English capital drawing 2-2 on the night for a 3-3 aggregate scoreline to join holders Real Madrid, Bayern and Porto in the last eight. Despite playing the last hour of normal time and 30 minutes extra time without talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was sent off for a foul on Oscar, PSG dug deep to take revenge for last season's quarter-final exit to Chelsea. "PSG really wants to join the big leagues and I think we did that tonight," estimated coach Laurent Blanc.
