  • The final whistle blows and it's the Basel players who are all smiles after they cause a 2-1 away upset. That result did not look likely after Oscar's goal on the stroke of half-time but Basel responded well and made their chances count.

    90
  • A chance for Eto'o but his first touch isn't brilliant and Voser gets back to make a challenge. The ball balloons up to Sommer.

    90
  • There will be an additional four minutes at Stamford Bridge.

    90
  • Basel playing the clock down trying to pass it around but Eto'o wins back possession for the home team.

    90
  • Chelsea heaping the pressure on in the final couple of minutes but the Basel defence stands firm. Oscar's shot is hit with venom, but straight at Sommer.

    89
  • Taulant Xhaka comes on now for Basel, with Salah given a well-earned rest.

    88
  • The home side a little shell-shocked by Basel's two swift goals and they suddenly look a little short of ideas in the final third.

    87
  • Schar is back in play as Chelsea look to find a very important equaliser.

    86
  • A lull in play at Basel defender Schar is receiving treatment. The away side are down to 10 men currently.

    85
  • Basel substitution with Arlind Ajeti replacing Valentin Stocker.

    84
  • Basel passing the ball around now and still look dangerous.

    83
  • GOAL STRELLER! Well this has been coming since Basel levelled. Basel captain Marco Streller gets his head onto the near-post corner and Cech fails to keep it out.

    82
  • Chelsea opened up on the counter once again and Streller's shot is deflected just wide for a corner.

    81
  • Chelsea have switched to two up front now and it seems to be taking a little while for the new system to come together, whereas Murat Yakin's side sense more goals.

    80
  • Mikel straight into the action and plays it back to Cech as Basel look to attack.

    79
  • Schar breaks dangerously and tries to slot it to Salah but Ivanovic just stops the vital pass finding its intended destination.

    77
  • A double change for Chelsea, with Demba Ba coming on for Lampard and Mikel on for van Ginkel.

    76
  • More danger from Basel and their tails are up now. Stocker just misses out on a through ball to Streller.

    75
  • Salah not too happy now as he want a free kick but the referee plays on.

    74
  • Ivanovic flying forward down the middle now but Basel are able to tackle him just before it becomes too dangerous.
