John Mikel Obi scored the equalizer for Chelsea in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League tie with Paris Saint Germain (PSG). Mikel scored at the tail end of the first half after PSG Ibrahmovic scored a free kick that Mikel deflected into his own net in the 39th minutes. This is Mikel’s second goal for Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League since he joined the club.
In the 78th minutes of the second half, Cavani scored for PSG and that was how the match ended. Chelsea will be glad they are getting away with an away goal.
