Chelsea 2-1 CFR Cluj Highlights
Chelsea achieved their mission to reach the Champions League knockout phase by beating Cluj – but it was not without its anxious moments on a night of tension at Stamford Bridge.
Luiz Felipe Scolari has presided over a stuttering campaign in the group phase, and so it proved again as Chelsea produced an unimpressive display before finally achieving the victory they required.
Salomon Kalou scrambled home Chelsea’s opener to break the deadlock six minutes before the interval, only for Cluj to set alarm bells ringing around Stamford Bridge when Yssouf Kone headed an equaliser after 55 minutes.
Didier Drogba emerged from the substitutes’ bench to steer home the winner with 19 minutes left, but Roma’s win against Bordeaux means Chelsea finish second in Group A and face a potentially hazardous last 16 draw.
