  • Valencia 1 PSG 2. The visitors hold a first leg lead heading back to France, but Valencia have a lifeline and Ibrahimovic's late red card means PSG will not be at full strength on home soil.

  • Dramatic end to proceedings in Valencia. Ibrahimovic will now serve a European ban. A very positive night for PSG in danger of imploding here.

  • Ibrahimovic has been shown a straight red card. He was heading for the corner flag. He lost the ball and then went over the top on a challenge on Guardado.

  • PSG will be so disappointed to have conceded late on. They have been so solid all night, but then stood there and watched Rami run off them.

  • GOAL VALENCIA - RAMI. Lifeline for Los Che. Finally Valencia get a free-kick delivery right, with Tino Costa whipping the ball into the six-yard box. Rami sneaks in unmarked to flick a volley past Sirigu.

  • Running theme here, with Guardado floating over a cross from the left. His delivery floats goalwards and into the hands of Sirigu. He clears, PSG lose the ball and Valencia come forward again.

  • Final change of the evening sees Armand replace Pastore.

  • Guardado with another cross from the left. Better this time as he goes low and picks out Valdez. His first touch is terrible and the ball runs away from him.

  • Guardado with time to hang over a cross. The ball spends a long time in the air and Sirigu is able to watch it all the way into his hands. He has been solid tonight.

  • Viera felled by Pastore. Another opportunity for Valencia to swing the ball into the box from a wide area. Tino Costa delivers once again. His curling delivery is touched away by Sirigu.

  • Matuidi putting a shift in, chasing everything across midfield. PSG must have some tired legs out there, they have been chasing the ball for long periods.

  • Final change by Valencia, with Viera thrown on in place of Feghouli. Soldado's number was shown for a moment, but was quickly changed.

  • Soldado rushes things again when picked out on the edge of the box. Difference between the two sides has been composure in and around the final third.

  • PSG keep the ball for more than a couple of passes. Ibrahimovic then gives it away again. He hasn't offered enough at times. Valencia counter, but find no way through.

  • PSG now leaving Ibrahimovic up front and pulling everyone else back. They are now looking to take what they have. Understandable.

  • Ibrahimovic caught offside. PSG can't get on the ball, but Valencia can't make them pay. Alex does miss a clearance this time, but fortune favours PSG as the ball drops to Jallet.

  • Tino Costa with a very ambitious effort from 40 yards out. Alex stands firm and gets his head in the way. Valencia try again, with Canales hooking a high cross to the back post. Hopeful more than anything else from the hosts.

  • Verratti down again. Tino Costa with yet another foul. PSG in no hurry to take the free-kick. Guardado then does well to get Valencia moving forward again, but his cross is over-hit.

  • Alex able to nod clear above Valdez. PSG need to keep their shape and concentration. There have been a couple of moments in the last few minutes where they have left holes at the back.

  • Lavezzi on his way off for PSG. Menez takes to the field in his place. Like-for-like swap.
