Javier Pastore was one of the first big-money recruits by PSG after the French club was taken over by its billionaire Qatari ownership. The Argentine’s mostly been a flop in the French capital since coming over from Palermo, but he did a lot to redeem himself in the final minute of PSG’s Champions League quarterfinal with Chelsea.
Look at that individual piece of skill to skin César Azpilicueta, Frank Lampard and squeeze the ball past Petr Cech on the near post. John Terry, too, was left with little more to do than watch the ball roll into the back of the net.
It gave the French champs a 3-1 advantage going into the return leg next week at Stamford Bridge.
SPI says PSG's odds to advance jumped from 64% to 82% with Pastore's stoppage-time goal.—

You know how you know it was a good goal? Instead of stamping his feet or pouting, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho opted to hug his counterpart, Laurent Blanc, instead.
Mourinho adds: "The third goal . . it is not a goal, it is a joke."—
