Cavani header keeps PSG hopes alive in Chelsea tie
Paris St Germain sustained their hopes of reaching the Champions League quarter-finals
Paris St Germain sustained their hopes of reaching the Champions League quarter-finals when Edinson Cavani's powerful second-half header salvaged a 1-1 home draw against Chelsea in their last-16 first leg on Tuesday.
Cavani struck 12 minutes into the second half to cancel out Branislav Ivanovic's first-half header which was scored against the run of play after the French champions had dominated from the start at the Parc des Princes.
Chelsea, who won last year's quarter-final with PSG on away goals, scored with their only chance while the hosts had several opportunities to take a lead into the second leg through Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
