Z Ibrahimovic 39 , E Cavani Substitute Edinson Cavani fired the winning goal in the 78th minute after Chelsea's defence had withstood heavy pressure for much of the game on Tuesday night.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic's deflected free-kick had given PSG the lead in the first half, before Jon Obi Mikel equalised for Chelsea in stoppage time before the break.

PSG dominated the early stages, with Lucas Moura, Marco Verratti and Ibrahimovic all threatening Thibaut Courtois' goal, but it was Chelsea who should have taken the lead midway through the first half.
Diego Costa found himself unmarked in the box when Baba Rahman's cross was delivered from the left, and the striker forced a brilliant save from PSG goalkeeper Kevin Trapp, who got his hand to the ball to tip it onto the bar.
It was then Ibrahimovic's chance to head his side into the lead, but the PSG striker made a mess of his effort from Angel Di Maria's cross as he nodded it into the ground and over the bar.
After 39 minutes, Ibrahimovic did manage to break the deadlock, and it was Mikel - brought in by boss Guus Hiddink for the suspended Nemanja Matic - who was the guilty party for Chelsea.
