Chelsea Say Au Revoir to PSG Thanks to Substitute Strikes

Never before has Jose Mourinho lost a Champions League quarter-final, and thanks to the outstretched foot of Demba Ba in the dying minutes on Tuesday evening, The Special One can maintain his record.

Chelsea's bout with Paris Saint-Germain wasn't the most beautiful display we will see in this competition this season, but Mou's tactics were effective—as were his substitutes, with both Andre Schurrle and Ba coming off the bench to find the net. 

PSG will rue a missed opportunity to make their mark on the Champions League, but they fell victim to Chelsea's well-documented resilience when they are in need of a comeback.
