Half-time: Chelsea 1 PSG 0 (Agg: 2-3)

Andre Schurrle, on for the injured Eden Hazard, gave Chelsea the early goal they wanted in the Champions League quarter-final second leg.

The Blues, 3-1 down from the first leg, suffered a setback when talisman Hazard limped off after 18 minutes at Stamford Bridge.

But his replacement struck 14 minutes later, scoring with a half-volley from near the penalty spot after Branislav Ivanovic’s long throw had been flicked on by David Luiz.

Paris St-Germain, without sidelined striker Zlatan Ibrahimović, moved the ball around nicely and looked assured at the back before leaving Schurrle unmarked.

The German duly punished them – unlike Gary Cahill, who missed a chance to put Chelsea level on aggregate when he blazed high and wide of the target after PSG had failed to deal with Frank Lampard’s left-wing free-kick.

Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Luiz, Lampard; Willian, Oscar, Hazard (Schurrle 18); Eto’o.
Subs: Schwarzer, Cole, Kalas, Mikel, Ba, Torres.
