LONDON (AFP) - Chelsea reached the Champions League semi-finals with a thrilling 2-0 win over Paris Saint Germain in their quarter-final second leg match on Tuesday to go through on the away goal rule after the tie ended 3-3 on aggregate.

A late goal at Stamford Bridge by substitute Demba Ba added to Andre Schurrle's first-half strike was enough to see the 2012 champions through at the expense of the French champions.

Chelsea become only the third team since 1992 to overturn a 3-1 first-leg deficit in the Champions League knockout phase.
