PSG's Europa chances still alive

Text by FRANCE 24 (with wires)

Latest update : 2011-03-11

Portuguese champions Benfica defeated Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 on Thursday, but the French club kept their chances of a place in the Europa League quarter-finals alive by scoring a precious away goal.

Portuguese champions Benfica had to dig deep as they fought back from a goal down to beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 at the Estadio da Luz at Europa League last 16. 

Winger Peguy Luyindula put PSG ahead before Mevlut Erding struck the post for the French side, but Maxi Pereira slammed in an equaliser shortly before half-time and Franco Jara lashed home a low shot to claim victory in the 81st minute.

With this goal away, Paris manager Antoine Kombouare still think his squad can make it to the quarter final on March 17 for the return game. "We wanted to score here and we did it. Next week, I hope we reverse the result. Beat Benfica 1-0 would give me a lot of satisfaction."
