PARIS -- Ezequiel Lavezzi scored the equalizer as Paris Saint-Germain drew 1-1 with Valencia on Wednesday to reach the Champions League quarterfinals for the first time since 1995.

PSG had won the away leg of their last-16 match 2-1 and seemed content to sit back in a dull first half in which the visitors mustered two tame shots on target. The match came to life in the 55th minute when Brazilian forward Jonas profited from PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi to pick up the loose ball and score with a fierce shot from 20 metres.

PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti brought on substitute Kevin Gameiro shortly after and his surging run led to Lavezzi's equalizer in the 66th, as the Argentina winger knocked the ball in after Gameiro's initial shot had been saved.
