when John Terry’s headed clearance fell to Ezequiel Lavezzi and the
Argentine forward thumped a half-volley past Petr Cech.
Eden Hazard grabbed a crucial away goal for Chelsea from the
penalty spot after 27 minutes after Brazilian defender Thiago Silva
fouled compatriot Oscar.
PSG restored their advantage on 61 minutes, however, thanks to a
David Luiz own goal before Javier Pastore waltzed into the area
and fired a shot past Cech at his near post in stoppage time.

three minutes when Gareth Bale collected Daniel Carvajal’s pass
and poked the ball under goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller.

finalists and Isco’s precise strike from the edge of the box doubled
Real’s advantage on 27 minutes.
The fleet-footed Cristiano Ronaldo added a third on 57 minutes as
he skipped round Weidenfeller to give Real a comfortable cushion and
equal Lionel Messi’s record of 14 goals in the competition in one
