Demba Ba’s 87th minute was the last deciding element that Chelsea needed in order to knock out PSG from the Champions League in a forgetful match for Edinson Cavani.
The home leg match between Chelsea and PSG saw the French side snatching a 3-1 advantage and Eden Hazard’s injury was turning things even tougher for Jose Mourinho and his players as they now had to play at Stamford Bridge hoping to overcome their deficit and somehow find a place into the last 4 remaining teams in the Champions League.
Andre Schurrle came off of the bench at the 18th minute as he had to replace Eden Hazard who was removed from the pitch due to an injury but the substitute player made almost an immediate impact as he scored the opening goal of the match only minutes after having entered the battle fray.
After receiving a pass from David Luiz, Schurrle slotted the ball past Salvatore Sirigu and gave hope to Chelsea as well as their fans that there still is a chance for them to get into the next stages of the Champions League as they only had 1 more goal left to score.
Edinson Cavani had a few golden opportunities to seal the game for PSG but it was a horrible night for the Uruguayan forward who had the chance to become the hero for his club but just couldn’t do it.
As the minutes ticked down PSG was trying to hold on to their lead and just when it seemed like the French squad was going to take home the victory, Demba Ba managed to touch a deflected shot from Azpilicueta and he diverted it past the reach of Sirigu as he last goal which Chelsea needed in order to knock out PSG from the European competition.
