Twitter Reacts to Chelsea exiting the Champions League


The second legs of this season’s Champions League round of 16 ties this week have been a fantastic advocate for the competition, with perhaps the pick of the bunch being PSG’s 2-2 draw at Chelsea, meaning the French side went through on away goals.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was given a straight red card in the first half for a tackle on Oscar, and Gary Cahill made the advantage count, giving the hosts the lead on 81 minutes. However, just five minutes later, David Luiz, who left Stamford Bridge for £50 million in the summer, thumped home a header to send the game into extra time.

Once more Chelsea went ahead through Eden Hazard’s penalty following Thiago Silva’s handball but PSG’s Brazilian defender made amends perfectly with another superb header six minutes from time to give coach Laurent Blanc’s side the progression they deserved.

So how did Twitter react to the magical European night at Stamford Bridge?

Gary Linekar is a regular on Twitter Reacts, and the Match of the Day host sums it perfectly in this tweet commending PSG’s efforts.

Former Barcelona man Patrick Kluivert also emphasised what a job Laurent Blanc’s side had done.

Even Wayne Rooney was getting in on the act…

The early red card to Zlatan Ibrahimovic didn’t end up hindering PSG’s chances, but many felt the sending off was unjust, with the reaction from the Chelsea players not helping…

Here’s what Zlatan had to say…

What were the chances of David Luiz scoring? Surely he can be let off for celebrating?

Many criticised Cesc Fabregas’ performance…

Manchester City and Arsenal are now England’s only hopes in the Champions League this season and even Jose Mourinho is supporting his title rivals, with this country’s footballing reputation on the line…

But I’ll leave the final word to PSG’s Twitter account as they go marching on…
