    Chelsea v Bayer Leverkusen



    These Chelsea fans have fond memories of the days when Michael Ballack was a Chelsea player. Nowadays he plays for Bayer Leverkusen, the visitors to Stamford Bridge tonight, who are back in the Champions League after a seven year absence



    Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has left Frank Lampard on the bench tonight. What's more, he's left John Terry in the stands



    Yet there is a place in the starting line-up for Fernando Torres, who's being supported up front by Daniel Sturridge and Juan Mata

    The Chelsea wall blocks a free-kick from Ballack as an opening goal proves elusive. It could easily have been 1-1 by now but the officials have contentiously ruled out two efforts - first Rolfes had a header chalked off for pushing (very harshly), then Torres was denied when Raul Miereles tried (but failed) to nudge his effort into the net while in an offside position



    it's Luiz who eventually scores the opening goal in the 67th minute. And a fine, curling strike it is too, crafted by Torres and dispatched with assuredness by the young Brazilian defender



    Meireles is brought to ground by Schurrle as Chelsea look to double their advanatge



    Florent Malouda looks to stretch his opposite number Gonzalo Castro down the left flank



    In the closing stages Torres initiates a one-two on the left wing and drives into the box



    for a man who has still only scored one goal in his Chelsea career it would seem logical to shoot, but instead he selflessly cuts the ball back to Mata who stabs it home



    No goals for the Spaniard, but at least he'll be valued by his team-mates after that display. 2-0 it ends, a sound start for the Blues
