  • Two goals from Mata, David Luiz's free-kick and Ramires late tap-in give Chelsea a slightly flattering scoreline in Group E but they will be happy with the three points. Nordsjaelland's deficiencies as European minnows were ultimately exposed as their defensive errors and failure to take their chances were exposed. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction, including the match report, player ratings and quotes.


    90 + 3
  • Chelsea, though, enjoy a good period of possession as they run down the clock.

    90 + 2
  • Nordsjaelland's fans have not lost heart and continue to sing in injury time. Their team are still attempting to pass but are not really getting anywhere.

    90 + 1
  • The scoreline now flatters Chelsea a little but it is a nice goal from the defending champions. Torres feeds Oscar, who has been quiet tonight, and the Brazilian toe pokes a short-range cross from the byline to Ramires and his compatriot taps in.

  • GOAL RAMIRES (0-4)!!!

  • Mata's two goals make him man of the match tonight. But special mention should also go to Okore for his defending and passing.

  • Torres will be a little frustrated he has not, as yet, got on the scoresheet. He has got through a lot of work for his team tonight.

  • Nordsjaelland have not given up and Stokholm sprays a pass out to the right for the ever-willing run of Parkhurst. But Ivanovic intercepts.

  • Chelsea are not finished and are still attacking. Lampard takes a shot on the run from the corner of the box but hits it over the top of Hansen's goal. Lampard has his hands up to apologise to his team-mates.

  • Laudrup, son of Swansea City manager Michael, comes on in place of Lorentzen.

  • The goal was Mata's last contribution as he is replaced by Mikel.

  • To rub salt in my wounds after my earlier criticism, Mata has his second goal of the night. The ball ricochets to the Spaniard inside the penalty area and he shows great control and reflexes to hit a low finish into the back of the net. Harsh on Nordsjaelland but they have been guilty of bad defending and not taking their chances.

  • GOAL MATA (0-3)!!!

  • That should be game over. Nordsjaelland deserve credit for their attitude and effort tonight. But, unless something remarkable happens, they are going to be losing.

  • From the free-kick, Luiz smacks in a direct effort from 25 yards which goes into the back of the net off the near post. Luiz hit the ball in the style of Cristiano Ronaldo with his laces to give it some dip and swerve.

  • GOAL LUIZ (0-2)!!!

  • Chelsea seem to have decided they need to exert a bit of pressure and are keeping Nordsjaelland in their half. Torres wins a free-kick 25 yards from goal.

  • Lampard takes the free-kick and blasts it into Nordsjaelland's vast wall. That is a bit of a waste but Lampard did not have many other options.

  • A very clumsy and reckless challenge from Runje on the edge of the Nordsjaelland box earns a booking and a free-kick.
