Paris St Germain reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the first time in 18 years on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) after Argentine striker Ezequiel Lavezzi salvaged a 1-1 home draw with Valencia to secure a 3-2 aggregate success.
Jonas put the Spaniards ahead with a superb 25-metre strike on 55 minutes.
But Lavezzi hauled Qatar-backed PSG level 11 minutes later, scoring at the second attempt after his initial shot was parried back to him by keeper Vicente Guaita.
Former England captain David Beckham, who signed a short-term deal with PSG in January, will have to wait to make his first Champions League appearance since 2010 with AC Milan after Ancelotti opted to leave the midfielder on the bench.
Valencia coach Ernesto Valverde said his side ran out of gas.
“Our goal was to score the first goal and make them doubt,” Valverde told reporters.
“We did that but in the end we were too tired. The key moment came when they scored their goal because after that they played even more defensively.”
