Paris Saint Germain have been boosted by the news that injury-stricken midfielder Yohan Cabaye has returned from injury in time for the Champions League last 16 second leg trip to Chelsea.

Cabaye has been out since the 2-2 draw with Caen with a groin problem, missing the club's last five matches including the 1-1 draw with the Blues at the Parc des Princes on 17 February.

But the former Newcastle United player has recovered in time for the game and joins Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Motta in the squad for the visit of Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.

Full-back Serge Aurier and winger Lucas Moura are both absent having missed the last four weeks with respective thigh and groin problems for a game in which PSG must score at Stamford Bridge to stand any chance of progressing to the last eight.

Branislav Ivanovic's first half goal was cancelled out by Edinson Cavani's second-half header as the French champions staged a second-half comeback that saw Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois make a series of saves.

PSG boss Laurent Blanc said his side must be more clinical in the reverse tie against Chelsea or risk failing to reach the last eight for the first time in three years.

"The score today is very good and we had no injuries, so it's been a nice game for us," he told his club's official website.

"We picked up all three points, we created a lot of chances and we played some good football. But we need to convert a higher percentage of our openings in four days' time. It's pretty obvious that we won't have as many chances to score against Chelsea as we did today."

Bar John Obi Mikel's recent knee surgery keeping him out, Chelsea are injury free for the second visit of PSG in as many seasons, with last term's clash seeing them require a late Demba Ba strike to see them through to the semi-final.
