Ba’s late strike sends Chelsea to UCL semis
Demba Ba’s late goal saw Chelsea qualify for the Champions League semifinals. Chelsea started slowly in the first half as both sides considered their approach, with PSG bringing a 3-1 lead into the match. PSG sat back, and Chelsea tried to encourage them forward in order to launch counter attacks.
Frank Lampard almost scored on 28 minutes, when a fiercely hit free kick from the wing deflected off the wall, and Salvatore Sirigu dived right to save. Four minutes later, Chelsea had the lead when David Luiz flicked on a corner and an unmarked Andre Schurrle slotted in a low shot.
Real Madrid also went through despite losing 0-2 to Borussia Dortmund.
