CommentsChelseas Demba Ba scores the first goal for the team during their Champions League quarter-final second leg soccer match against Paris St Germain at Stamford Bridge in London, April 8, 2014. [Photo/Agencies]LONDON – Chelsea snatched a dramatic late goal through Demba Ba to beat Paris St Germain 2-0 and reach the Champions League semi-finals on the away goals rule on another memorable European night at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.Substitute striker Ba, who replaced Frank Lampard midway through the second half, struck with time running out for the 2012 European champions, who looked to be going out of the competition after losing the first leg 3-1 last week.But Bas goal in the 87th minute levelled the tie at 3-3 and Chelsea, evoking memories of their battling and ultimately successful campaign two seasons ago, went through on away goals thanks to Eden Hazards penalty in Paris last week.Andre Schuerrle, who replaced the injured Hazard after only 17 minutes on Tuesday, had given Chelsea hope with a superbly taken goal after 32 minutes but Jose Mourinhos perfect record of winning all eight European quarter-finals he had been involved in, seemed about to end with time running out.Ba sealed victory, though, when a Cesar Azpilicueta shot was deflected to him in the area and he scooped the ball past keeper Salvatore Sirigu to send the home fans into raptures as Mourinho sprinted down the touchline to join his celebrating players.”It all happened so quick,” said Ba. “I saw the ball and it was in the goal. I just do what I have to do when I get chances. I didnt have chances this season but tonight I took it.”Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho added on ITV: “Demba made a crucial finish for us and I think very much deserved. The team that decided to defend was punished and the team that played with their heart deserved to go to the semis.”The Portuguese coachs dash along the touchline evoked memories of his famous Old Trafford celebration when his Porto side beat Manchester United in 2004 although this time he was also keen to tell his players not to take any risks.It is the seventh time in 11 Champions League campaigns that Chelsea have reached the last four and Mourinho is on course to become the first manager to win the European Cup with three clubs after triumphs with Porto in 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010.Mourinho had told his players to “go out and play with a smiles on their faces” as they had nothing to lose after last weeks defeat, but they failed to make an early impression as PSG dominated the midfield and pegged Chelsea back.Thiago Motta, Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verratti took a stranglehold in the middle of the park for the visitors, who were playing with the kind of confidence that comes from a team who have won their last 11 matches.But PSG coach Laurent Blanc, who said his best form of defending their first leg lead was to attack, appeared to have different tactics in reality and his side failed to seriously test Chelsea when they held the upper hand.Bayern draws 1-1 at UnitedPSG sinks Chelsea, Real eases past DortmundBayern ousts ArsenalPrevious Page1 2 3 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 3 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesHot WordsChina and JapanMalaysian flightCrimeaAnti-corruptionSmogSex educationUS envoysMotor showGiant pandasH7N9 bird fluPhotoRecord number of guns, knives seized in raidThe world in photos: April 7-13Prince William, Kate attend cricket promotional eventThe Grandmaster wins big at HKFANew lunar rover unveiled at Chongqing tech fairPrivate museums of the rich in ChinaChinaBusinessRegionalWorldSportsPassion for SUVs powering marketOnline tourism sector may see more integrationPolicies aim to curb judicial corruptionSecurity boosted at hospitalsChina protects soldiers rightsNew surgery insurance finds few takersLoophole closed for officials early releaseBeijing-Shanghai high-speed railway sees 200 mln tripsRail traffic resumes after derailment in NE ChinaConstruction of funeral home suspended in S ChinaMinor quake triggers landslide in Tibet2 killed in C China expressway pileupPassion for SUVs powering marketOnline tourism sector may see more integrationStimulus very different from 2008China meets French resistanceSurgery insurance finds few takersUK to export horses for China coursesNitrogen oxide key to battling smogRiding the rails in EthiopiaBaucus, Cui call for mutual effortsAlipay banned from dealing with Diablo IIIChinas IPO market not shut downPurifiers provide breath of fresh airStudy-in-Shanghai English website and appPet supplies event showcases new productsChengdu SpecialGuizhous online chat room shortens rural and urban distanceWhite swans seen on Ulunggur Lake, NW ChinaIntl railway promises to revive Silk RoadExperience porcelain and ancient kiln culture in JingdezhenCompanies show potential for growthNew Zealand to cooperate with Xi’anA dream to see the light6th Jiangxi Tour kicks offCities seek hub status on Maritime Silk RoadThe world in photos: April 7-13Palestinian beekeepers harvest honey in Gaza StripOfficial says sub will be used in search for jetKerry voices strong concerns about attacks in UkraineUN chief concerned over deteriorating situation in UkraineUkraine crisis takes dangerous turn3 dead in shootings at Kansas sitesNATO chief concerned about Ukraine crisisCrucial Snowden questions loom large over PulitzersUN Security Council to meet on Ukraine Sunday nightOrchestra to return painting looted by NazisSeveral casualties in fight with pro-Russian groupPacquiao beats Bradley by decision in rematchYoung stars have eyes on EuropePrince William, Kate attend cricket promotional eventDPRK opens race to foreignersRio mayor says workers must make up lost timePacquiao has lost his fire, says Bradley before rematchPowell blasts unfair and unjust banStadiums hosting 2014 World CupChina up 2 places in latest FIFA rankingsRice pulls plug on swimming careerWorkers end strike after protest near stadiumMessi goes missing as Barca crashes outMost PopularMedia : |State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs|QQ International|Peopleforum||Partners : ||||Peoples Daily Online||||||||Portals : |||Sina|Sohu|Tom|Tencent|NetEase|Hexun|Organizations : |China US Focus|FrenCham|CPAFFC|CPIFA||eBeijing|AmCham|SwissCham BJ|…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer |Copyright 1995 -.
