Goals from Javier Pastore and Ezequiel Lavezzi gave PSG a 2-0 lead at the Mestalla, only for Adil Rami to strike in stoppage-time to give Los Che hope ahead of the return leg.

Ibrahimović then saw red after a reckless stamp and has now been sent off while playing for Juventus, Internazionale and PSG in the Champions League.
