Paris St-Germain sustained their hopes of reaching the Champions League quarter-finals when Edinson Cavani's powerful second-half header salvaged a 1-1 home draw against Chelsea in their last-16 first leg.

Cavani struck 12 minutes into the second half to cancel out Branislav Ivanovic's first-half header which was scored against the run of play after the French champions had dominated from the start at the Parc des Princes.

Chelsea, who won last year's quarter-final with PSG on away goals, scored with their only chance while the hosts had several opportunities to take a lead into the second leg through Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The return will be played at Stamford Bridge on March 11.

Elsewhere, Bayern Munich were held to a goalless draw by Shakhtar Donetsk with the German side reduced to 10 men following the second-half sending off of Xabi Alonso.

Alonso, who was making his 100th Champions League appearance, was dismissed with 25 minutes remaining following a second booking from Spanish referee Alberto Undiano Mallenco.
