UEFA Europa League
Group Stage
10/21/2010

1 – Borussia Dortmund (GER) ——— Sahin pen 50′
1 – Paris St. Germain (FRA) ———— Chantome 87′

A late goal from a substitute on the pitch for only about five minutes allowed visiting French Ligue 1 side PARIS ST. GERMAIN to steal a share of the spoils with a 1-1 draw against BORUSSIA DORTMUND in Group J of the UEFA Europa League.

Chances were to be found at both ends but goals would not flow freely as both goalkeepers — ROMAN WEIDENFELLER of Borussia Dortmund and Paris St. Germain’s Armenia international APOULA EDEL — proved themselves to be in fine form.

Finally, Borussia Dortmund, who had Paraguay World Cup striker LUCAS BARRIOS hit the post with a header in the first half, got on the board first five minutes after the break when Paris St. Germain was defender ZOUMANA CAMARA was judged to have fouled Poland international midfielder JAKUB BLASZCZYKOWSKI in the box; Turkey international midfielder NURI SAHIN dispatched the subsequent penalty for his second goal in Europe this season and a 1-0 lead for die Schwarzgelben.

Borussia Dortmund, to their regret, would not build on the initial strike and, despite playing at home in Germany, left a 16-9 advantage in shots-at-goal on the evening go for naught.

Paris St. Germain snatched a late equalizer with the work of two substitutes in the 87th minute to deny the hosts all three points; France international striker GUILLAUME HOARAU fed CLEMENT CHANTOME a pass in the box and the 23-year-old midfielder fired past a luckless Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper ROMAN WEIDENFELLER from close range.

The draw kept PSG top of Group B in the UEFA Europa League on seven points after three rounds.

More valuable points lost at home then for Borussia Dortmund, who previously dropped their second game of the round-robin stage at home to Spanish side FC Sevilla, who stand in second place on six points in Group B.
