  • Basel looked to have salvaged a level first leg finish late on but Luiz's last-gasp free-kick puts Chelsea firmly in command ahead of the second leg at Stamford Bridge. Thanks for your company this evening and I'll see you all soon.

  • FT: Basel 1 Chelsea 2

    90+4
  • What a finale! Luiz's free-kick on the edge of the box incredibly slips away from the fingertips of Sommer and Chelsea have their lead restored right at the death!

    90+4
  • GOAL FOR CHELSEA - LUIZ!

    90+4
  • Degen pushes on to meet Stocker's flick, weakly driving the ball across the face of goal which sees Cech get down quickly to snuff it out.

    90+3
  • Incredible scenes as Chelsea fail to put the ball in the net through both Terry and Moses, with Sommer then punching clear from the proceeding corner.

    90+2
  • Four minutes of added time to be played.

    90+1
  • Mata takes, but his left-footed shot swerves away from goal, drawing the frustration of Benitez in his technical area.

    90
  • Schar is booked following a poor challenge on Moses, following a splendid run that gifts Chelsea a free-kick 20 yards out.

    89
  • Two immediate chances present themselves for Chelsea, with Torres unable to sort his feet out before Oscar drives the ball over the bar from 10 yards.

    88
  • Cech dives to his left, Schar strokes the ball down the centre and Basel are level on the night!

    87
  • GOAL FOR BASEL - SCHAR!

    87
  • Penalty to Basel! Azpilicueta slides in to clear the ball, and seemed to do so, with Stocker going down under him as the hosts are presented with the chance to level up.

    86
  • Zoua's cut-back from the byline is cleared behind by Cole as Basel push on from that free-kick and earn a corner.

    85
  • Degen is left in some distress following that injury, and although the stretcher is on, the full-back makes his own way off the field in more positive scenes.

    85
  • Luiz also gets his name in the referee's book for a nasty tackle on P Degen.

    84
  • D Degen urges Luiz back to his feet after a trip on his fellow midfielder, with Chelsea looking considerably firm all over the pitch. Even if they do concede tonight, it would be brave man to back against Chelsea progressing to the final.

    83
  • Mata's delivery to the back post finds Ivanovic lunging in, but he can't direct the ball on target and it's a Basel goal-kick.

    82
  • D Degen hauls down Oscar in his first act on the pitch, earning him a yellow card and conceding a needless free-kick 20 yards from goal.

    81
  • Oscar takes the place of Lampard.
