Pastore strike puts Paris clear of Chelsea

Javier Pastore's added-time effort secured Paris Saint-Germain what could prove a vital two-goal cushion as the French club beat Chelsea FC 3-1 in their UEFA Champions League quarter-final opener. Billed as a moment of truth for Paris, the visit of José Mourinho's Premier League juggernauts initially brought the best out of them, with Ezequiel Lavezzi firing them into a fourth-minute lead. Eden Hazard struck from the spot as Laurent Blanc's men began retreating, though, and it took a David Luiz own goal to restore their advantage, doubled at the death.
