Paris Saint-Germain still require another point to qualify for the UEFA Champions League last 16 after needing a Zlatan Ibrahimović equaliser to stave off the prospect of a shock loss to RSC Anderlecht at the Parc des Princes.

Laurent Blanc's side enjoyed a comfortable 5-0 triumph in Brussels last time out and many were predicting an even more punishing night for Anderlecht in the French capital. Instead, they proved far more tenacious and took a surprise lead via Demy de Zeeuw on 68 minutes. Ibrahimović levelled moments later and John van den Brom's charges lost Sacha Kljestan to a late red card, but they ultimately held firm for their first point in Group C.

Match in 5

  • Paris fail to win for first time in Group C, Anderlecht's first point
  • De Zeeuw scores Anderlecht's first goal in group stage
  • Ibrahimović hits seventh goal of campaign
  • Anderlecht's Kljestan sent off eight minutes from time
  • Belgian champions host Benfica next, Paris host Olympiacos

Reaction

We are disappointed. We warned the players not to think about the first leg [a 5-0 win] but focus on getting three more points. We failed to do so.

We played very well. We were disciplined and we fought to get a good result here. Everybody gave something extra.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    All of the visiting players march over to the travelling supporters in delight and hug each other with beaming grins. They have every right to feel pleased after halting Paris at Parc des Princes and having seen out the last ten minutes a player down.
  • Yellow Card
    90+1
    Kaminski (Anderlecht) is shown a yellow card.
    To reinforce their determination to escape with a draw, Anderlecht make a slow substitution and their goalkeeper goes into the book for taking too long with his subsequent goal kick.

    Nuytinck (in) - De Zeeuw (out) (Anderlecht)

    There are few complaints from the USA international.
