West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho was at Stamford Bridge last night to watch the Champions League tie between Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho was at Stamford Bridge for last night’s Champions League clash between Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

It was the second leg of the last-16 tie between two of Europe’s biggest clubs, and in attendance was Sakho.

It was at the Bridge that the Senegal international met former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who was presumably at the game to show his support for PSG.

After the match, Sakho posted the following picture on social networking site Twitter.

Both Sakho and Sarkozy choose a good game to attend at Stamford Bridge, as the tie had everything to make it interesting.

Chelsea headed into the second leg as favourites, having drawn the first leg of the tie 1-1 in Paris last month.

The Blues got an added advantage just 30 minutes into the clash at the Bridge, as PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was controversially sent off.

Then in the 81st minute, Gary Cahill made it 1-0 to Chelsea, only for David Luiz to score the equaliser just five minutes later.

Eden Hazard restored the Blues’ lead six minutes into the extra-time period, but late in the game Thiago Silva’s header made it 2-2.

PSG went through to the quarter-finals on away goals rule, leaving Chelsea to pick up the pieces of yet another disappointing Champions League campaign.
