Match Commentary

90' Goal came against the run of play and was harsh on the home side. Cudicini made some great saves to keep Chelsea in it in the first half but the second half belonged to the English team and the result was probably a fair one
90' Great performance from Chelsea in terms of weathering the early storm and then growing into the game. Didn't actually have a shot on target all game but their resolute defending, particularly in the face of the excellent Aleksander Hleb and Philip Lahm down the left, saw them beat a very good side
90' Final whistle sounds and the game finishes 1-0 in Chelsea's favour
