Crucial win for Salzburg

Salzburg kept alive their Europa League chances with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Paris St Germain.

The Austrians needed victory to stop their hopes of progressing from Group F being extinguished while PSG just needed a point to guarantee their last-32 place.

And the result went Salzburg's way as they edged an entertaining clash courtesy of Jakob Jantscher's first-half strike and Dusan Svento's late volley, which actually took them above their opponents into second place in the group with a game to play.

PSG boss Antoine Kombouare rested his big guns, with Javier Pastore the most notable absentee while Salzburg had Stefan Maierhofer in attack.

A bright opening saw Mohamed Sissoko send a shot wide from the edge of the box before Jantscher responded for the home side with a similarly wayward effort.

Leonardo's 10th-minute shot from 20 yards was fumbled by Nicolas Douchez but Salzburg failed to capitalise.

Jefferson fired a free-kick over the bar as Salzburg continued to press before Nene attempted to enliven the visitors' performance with a left-footed effort which went over.

In the 20th minute the hosts took a deserved lead. Christoph Leitgeb made headway on the right before delivering the cross which Jantscher met to guide home and put his side ahead.

Jantscher was back among the action moments later when his 30-yard shot was parried away by a scrambling Douchez.

Martin Hinteregger's long-range shot was saved by Douchez before PSG's Mevlut Erdinc fired wide of the goal.

Salzburg's Eulogio Zarate headed wide in the 30th minute and later had another shot go wide while Erdinc volleyed over at the other end.

Leitgeb's left-footed effort forced a punched save by Douchez as the sides continued to trade blows, with Nene and Christophe Jallet going close for the Parisiens.

The tempo calmed in the second half, with PSG doing the pressing. Milan Bisevac had a shot saved before Marcos Ceara had two efforts blocked.

Erdinc and Leitgeb swapped shots while Jean-Cristophe Bahebeck had a shot saved by Alexander Walke.

Svento's volley deep into added time not only wrapped up the win but proved enough to take his side second - ahead of PSG - as he took the group to the wire.
