It looks like the end of the road for Valencia in this year's Champions League after they fell to a 1-2 defeat against big spending Paris Saint Germain on Tuesday evening. The French side got off to the best possible start, Lucas Moura shrugging off an early injury to hit the post in the ninth minute, and Lavezzi firing a shot through the hands of Guaita a minute later after picking up a return pass from Pastore. The Ches hardly caused any problems for Sirigu in the visiting goal throughout the first half, and with two minutes to go to the break Pastore made it two after connecting with a Lucas cross to fire a shot under the legs of the keeper. Valverde brought on Canales and Valdez at the break, but Lavezzi wasted a couple of chances to increase the lead, and Verratti had a goal disallowed for a questionable offside a few minutes later. The Spaniards finally rallied in the closing minutes, Valdez and Tino Costa going close before Rami got on the end of a Tino Costa free kick to peg one back in the ninetieth minute. After that Ibrahimovic got himself sent off in injury time after a hard tackle on Guardado, but even so Valencia's chances of overturning the result in Paris in three weeks' time appear to be very slim.
