French giants, Paris Saint Germain on Tuesday night eliminated the defending champion Bayern Munich from this season’s UEFA Champions League on away goals rule.

The holders defeated PSG 1-0 in the second leg quarter-final clash played at Parc de Prince, Paris, to tie the contest 3-3.

However, Eric Chaupo-Moting’s 40th-minute strike was not enough to save the Germans who lost the reverse tie 2-3 last week from crashing out of the competition at the quarter-final stage for the first time in three years.
