Champions League: Chelsea and Real Madrid advance to last four

Chelsea overturned a two goal deficit to beat big-spending Paris Saint Germain and progress to 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 target to send Jose Mourinho’s Blues through on the away goals rule and Laurent Blanc’s side to the exit door.

Real Madrid advanced to semi-finals for the fourth straight season after holding off a spirited challenge from last year’s losing finalists Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund won the second leg in Germany thanks to a first-half brace from Marco Reus.

But after a comprehensive first leg win in Spain Madrid, who were missing the injured Cristiano Ronaldo, go through 3-2 on aggregate.
