Edinson Cavani header keeps PSG hopes alive in Chelsea tie

Paris: 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.

The return will be played at Stamford Bridge on March 11.
