Diego Costa scored an equaliser before half-time after Adrien Rabiot's opener in 16th minute but the Spain international was substituted after an hour due to injury.

Ibrahimovic struck seven minutes later to secure a 4-2 aggregate success.

PSG advanced to a fourth straight Champions League quarterfinal and Chelsea were left to contemplate the probability of being absent from the competition next season.

Chelsea now at 10th in the English Premier League is facing the prospect of being without European football next season, with Costa and Eden Hazard limping off injured before Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final at Everton.
