Paris - Zlatan Ibrahimovic has salvaged a 1-1 home draw for Paris St Germain against Anderlecht as the French champions were made to wait for a Champions League last-16 spot on Tuesday.

WRAP: Champions League

Demy De Zeeuw opened the scoring for the Belgians in the 68th minute, only for Ibrahimovic to equalise two minutes later from inside the area.

Anderlecht were reduced to 10 men in the 82nd minute when Sacha Kljestan was shown a second yellow card, but the visitors, who lost 5-0 at home two weeks ago, held firm.

PSG lead Group C with 10 points from four games, three ahead of Olympiakos who beat Benfica 1-0. Benfica have four points and Anderlecht are bottom with one point.

Two weeks after their Brussels stroll, PSG did not have it all their way at the Parc des Princes.

Despite their early domination, PSG failed to break the deadlock in the first half as Lucas, who was in the starting line-up after Edinson Cavani was ruled out injured, lacked accuracy.

Ibrahimovic came close 10 minutes into the second half with a downward header shortly before Lucas volleyed just wide from the Swede's cross.

Anderlecht went ahead against the run of play when De Zeeuw slotted the ball past Salvatore Sirigu after connecting with Kljestan's back pass.

The visitors barely had time to celebrate as Ibrahimovic cut through the defence and his shot was deflected on to his right post by Thomas Kaminsky, but the former AC Milan and Barcelona forward had followed and poked in the rebound.

Kljestan picked up a second yellow card for handling the ball in the 82nd minute.
