PSG Progress Despite Draw

Paris Saint-Germain scraped through to the next round of the UEFA Champions League when they played out a 1-1 draw at home to Valencia on Wednesday.

Jonas had fired the Spaniards into the lead in the 55th minute but an Ezequiel Lavezzi equaliser allowed the French side to secure a 3-2 aggregate win.

PSG were without influential striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic who had been sent off late on in the first leg, and his absence was missed in a quiet first-half.

Fans would have been hoping to see David Beckham feature in the match, but the tense affair forced Carlo Ancelotti into making defensive substitutions to cling on to the result.

Valencia started well with Jonas being denied by a crucial challenge from Christophe Jallet before Roberto Soldado had a shot smothered.

Tino Costa followed up with an ambitious strike that went close while Sirigu had to palm away a stinging strike from Jonas before the break.

Ever Banega was introduced in the second-half for the Spaniards and added some spark to their attack. Their persistence would then pay off as Jonas thumped a 25-yard strike inside the post.

PSG responded well though and 11 minutes later he latched onto the ball after it took a lucky bounce off the defenders and he poked it home on the second attempt.

Valencia piled on the pressure in the dying minutes of the game but a stubborn PSG defence did well to limit the chances and PSG progressed.
