  • He's not playing. But the "Only One" is in London...

  • And the teams emerge down the tunnel, just three minutes until kick-off...Chelsea can't pull this off, can they?
    4/8/2014 6:42:47 PM
  • 1 min: And Chelsea get us under way at Stamford Bridge...
    4/8/2014 6:46:42 PM
  • 3 min: A rather tidy piece of keep ball from the home side is the only action of note so far. They'll have to show more incision to turn this one around, but it's early days yet.

  • 4 min: Chelsea keeping up the pressure to shackle their Parisian foes, Cahill goes in a bit strong on Lavezzi, but a card is not given. In fact, Lavezzi was offside either way. He'd already made it 1-0 to PSG by this time last week so Cahill wasn't taking any chances...

  • 7 min: Lampard is called back for a foul on Lucas Moura, but the veteran England midfielder avoids a booking. PSG looking sharp on the perfect Stamford Bridge pitch.

  • "Where is Zlatan?" I hear you cry. Here he is...looking quite content in the stands.
    4/8/2014 7:16:23 PM
  • 30 min: Half an hour gone and a comfortable start for PSG,  their night made all the easier after the dangerman Hazard was forced off early.
    4/8/2014 7:17:48 PM
    4/8/2014 7:18:28 PM
  • 31 min: What was that about a comfortable start for PSG? Schurrle, who replaced Hazard, has just put the Blues 1-0 up. From a corner, David Luiz heads on and Schurrle runs in unmarked to give 'keeper Sirigu no chance. Just the one goal deficit now. Game on!
    4/8/2014 7:20:44 PM
  • 34 min: Chelsea only need one more goal now and they will be in the semi-final draw on Friday. Or make that a clean sheet, plus one more goal...

  • 35 min: What drama at the Westfalenstaion! Reus scores again, finishing on the rebound after Lewandowski hit the post. Incredible! They are nearly right back in it. When will Ronaldo be summoned from the Real bench?
    4/8/2014 7:24:49 PM
  • No attempts there for PSG in the first half...
    4/8/2014 7:47:26 PM
  • 46 min: The away team begin the second period, they still lead by a goal of course too.
    4/8/2014 7:48:19 PM
  • 56 min: Lavezzi pings over the resulting free-kick but Cech does well to parry out the ball through the crowded players.
    4/8/2014 8:01:07 PM
  • 58 min: Cavani and Lavezzi have not lived up to their lethal reputations, and only one team look like scoring the next goal tonight, the home side. That would of course, put Jose Mourinho's team through as it stands too..
    4/8/2014 8:03:28 PM
  • 64 min: Chelsea win the corner, but Cavani clears, looking better in defence than he has in attack tonight. Chelsea keep up the pressure, and have just thrown on Demba Ba in place of Lampard.
    4/8/2014 8:08:59 PM
  • 66 min: A rare chance for PSG, Lucas Moura meets the free-kick but can only head wide. Chelsea then go on the counter, Ba heads on to Schurrle who gets his shot away, but Maxwell slides in to take the sting out of it.
    4/8/2014 8:14:23 PM
  • Closing on the final 15 minutes. All to play for in both ties. A thrilling conclusion awaits...
    4/8/2014 8:16:40 PM
  • 75 min: Mourinho beginning to grow more and more animated on the touchline. Ba goes down in the box and clashing with Thaigo Silva but nothing is given. PSG starting to have more success in the middle and Cabaye hits a marvellous cross-field pass to put Cavani through on goal but he blazes it over the bar. The Uruguayan could have put one PSG foot in the semi-final there..
    4/8/2014 8:21:14 PM
  • We're approaching the final 10 minutes, and one would not bet against some late drama either here at the Bridge, or at the Westfalenstadion..
    4/8/2014 8:23:11 PM
  • 80 min: Mourinho has played is final card. He's brought on Torres..
    4/8/2014 8:24:27 PM
  • FT: Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Real Madrid It was a gallant effort, but it's all over in Germany. Dortmund devastation as Madrid limp though. They power of a first-leg three-goal lead if there ever was one.
    4/8/2014 8:35:55 PM
  • FT: Chelsea 2-0 PSG:  The French side have a corner, but Cech punches away and then makes another save..and it's all over! Chelsea have done it. Mourinho has worked his magic and the Blues are through to Friday's semi-final draw. Demba Ba the hero and the Bridge is bouncing to a spot of Madness. Just how does the "Special One" do it?
