Champions League: Chelsea and Real Madrid advance to last four
Chelsea overturned a two-goal deficit to beat big-spending Paris Saint Germain and improvement towards the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Trailing 3-1 from last week’s first-leg in Paris, Andre Schuerrle (32nd minute) and Demba Ba (87th-minute) hit the goal to deliver Jose Mourinho’s Blues through about the away goals rule and Laurent Blanc’s aspect towards the exit door.
Real Madrid advanced to semi-finals for the fourth straight year after holding off a spirited challenge from previous year’s losing finalists Borussia Dortmund.
Dortmund won the 2nd leg in Germany because of a first-half support from Marco Reus.
But following a thorough first-leg win in Spain Madrid, who have been missing the injured Cristiano Ronaldo, proceed through 3-2 on aggregate.
