[ad#m1] st. Jakob-Park | 25 Apr 13 | Europa League semi final, 1st leg
David Luiz scored a cool stoppage time free kick to give Chelsea the win against FC Basel and has perhaps booked the finals slot for the Blues at the Amsterdam Arena.
Chelsea do have a record of never losing a European semi-final at Stamford Bridge. And Basel have never won a match in English soil. So ,if you see Basel instead of Chelsea in the finals, that would mean some serious records would have broken in doing so.
Earlier Victor Moses gave Chelsea an early lead in the 12th minute which was cancelled out by a Fabian Schar penalty in the 87th minute. A very cruel penalty decision that and Chelsea deservedly scored the late winner.
Basel starting lineup – Sommer; P. Degen, Schar, Dragovic, Park; Geoffroy, El-Nenny; Salah, F. Frei, Stocker; Streller
Chelsea starting lineup – Cech; Azpilicueta, Terry, Ivanovic, Cole; Luiz, Lampard; Ramires, Hazard, Moses; Torres
