KEPA MAKES A FINE STOP! Frankfurt are denied the opener this evening as the Chelsea keeper makes a brilliant save to deny Da Costa. Jovic fends off David Luiz on the left flank before lifting a cross to the right flank. Da Costa takes the strike on first time, directing his volley towards the top corner. However, Kepa turns his attempt over the bar.
22′ CHANCE! Giroud’s shot saved
28′ GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 Frankfurt (Loftus-Cheek)
GOALLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! LOFTUS-CHEEK PUTS CHELSEA AHEAD!!! 1-0!! The Blues take control of the tie as the England man curls a low strike into the bottom corner. He peels off the back of Rode in the box, latching on to Hazard’s offload. Loftus-Cheek has the space and time in the left inside channel to bend his right-footed effort around Trapp to find the net.
49′ GOAL! Chelsea 1-1 Frankfurt (Jovic)
GOALLLLLLLLL!!! JOVIC EQUALISES FOR THE VISITORS!!! 1-1!!! Game on as Frankfurt are back in the tie, scoring a crucial away goal to leave the contest in the balance. Jovic wins the knockdown towards Gacinovic before the latter threads a precise throughball behind the Chelsea defence. David Luiz moves into no man’s land and allows Jovic to raid behind him. The striker holds his composure to slot his strike past Kepa.
51′ GREAT CHANCE! Giroud’s shot wide out
WIDE! Hazard runs at the Frankfurt defence before backheeling his pass to Giroud on the charge. The Frenchman goes for goal with the outside of his boot, but he places his effort comfortably wide of the target.
87′ Giroud with another great chance!
SAVE! Giroud collects on the edge of the Frankfurt box and he goes for a drive at goal. The Frenchman gets power behind his strike, but Trapp makes the save before gathering at the second attempt.
100′ OFF THE LINE! David Luiz saves Chelsea
OFF THE LINE! David Luiz saves Chelsea with a goalline clearance to deny Haller. Kostic raids down the left flank and fires a low ball to the back post. Haller makes glancing contact on his left foot, sending the ball towards the bottom corner. Kepa is beaten, but David Luiz gets back just in time to clear the danger.
