    Time:90'
    • FC Copenhagen
    • Chelsea
    • 90+3' There goes the final whistle! Chelsea are easy and deserved winners. A fine victory.
    • 89' Three minutes to be added to the match.
    • 88' Kenneth Zohore takes over from Jesper Gronkjaer, who has endured a tiring evening without little joy.
    • 87' 36,500 fans have watched a walk in the Parken this evening. Terry is booked for a foul on Vingaard.
    • 86' Chelsea have a corner. Lampard wallops over the corner, but easy take for Wiland.
    • 85' Chelsea going to make a change. Malouda departs to be replaced by Yuri Zhirkov. Malouda is then booked for taking his time as he departs.
    • 84' Bengtsson attempts a pass, but rolls harmlessly through to Cech in the visiting goal.
    • 83' Chelsea's last win came at Sunderland on February 1. This will ease their concerns a bit, even if it has not been a vintage occasion. Has not really needed to be.
    • 82' Bolanos tries to break, but he is going nowhere. Terry comes over to cover up. Cech launches the ball down the park.
    • 81' Claudemir manages to get a shot on goal. Swerving effort. Cech looked at it before saving. He has been in little or no trouble this evening.
    • 80' Has been a decent game. More so if you are a Chelsea fan. Bentgsson races to the byline. His cross is caught by Cech. Familiar story.
    • 79' Pospech picks out Vingaard. He gets some meat on his shot, but straight at Cech.
    • 78' Bolanos throws a high ball into the box. Cech has plenty of time to study his options before rising to grab that out of the evening air.
    • 77' Pierre Bengtsson replaces Wendt for the home team.
    • 76' N'Doye decides he is going to rattle a shot at goal. Wide, and pretty woeful. A poor night for him.
    • 75' Wendt knocks Torres's shot off the line. No real pace on the shot after he flicked it beyond Wiiland. Getting nearer a first goal.
    • 74' Anelka departs to be replaced by Drogba. Top class from the Frenchman, and on comes Drogba.
    • 73' Didier Drogba getting ready for action on the side of the park. Wendt tackles Bosingwa. Chelsea camp out in the home half.
    • 72' Pospech hammers a shot a goal from 25 yards. Drills his shot at the head of Terry. Chelsea never been in any serious danger this evening and the pattern continues.
    • 71' Lampard goes for goal, but finds the stands. Poor effort really. High and not so handsome.
    • 70' Pospech is guilty of foul play on Torres. He is booked. Free-kick to the black shirts. Free-kick chance for Chelsea.
    • 69' Gronkjaer takes a dive before being given offside. Correct decision. Ivanovic did not touch the Danish player. Strong referee this evening.
    • 68' A couple of the Chelsea substitutes are jogging around at the side of the pitch in trainers. Not sure if they will need to get the boots on this evening.
    • 67' Ivanovic dives to head out of the area from Bolanos's cross. Poor cross really. Living in hope.
    • 66' Cole picks out Malouda. Cole flicks the cross in before the home side clear from their area.
    • 65' Offside decision goes against Anelka before Bosingwa is hauled down by Gronkjaer.
    • 64' The Danish fans continue to make themselves heard, but the visitors are back on the attack. Bosingwa and Malouda retain possession.
    • 63' Gronkjaer trying to impose himself, but Cech collects before hammering the ball down field.
    • 62' Essien looks for Anelka, but the striker is offside. The Danes continue their struggles.
    • 61' Copenhagen all over the show. Looks like they could concede a few more goals. Not the best recipe when you can't attack and you concede goals. N'Doye drills a shot well wide of the goal. Enough said.
    • 60' Fine save by Wiland! Dives to his right to keep out a show from Torres. Fine stop! Almost the third.
    • 59' Torres lays the ball off to Lampard, but he smashes well over the bar. All Chelsea, as it has been all night.
    • 58' Torres and Anelka linking well. There are a few more goals in this for Chelsea. Meanwhile, N'Doye wins a free-kick from Essien. Long way back for the Danes.
    • 57' Anelka with seven goals in six Champions League matches. He is on fire and Chelsea are on top. Well on top.
    • 56' GOAL FOR CHELSEA! Second goal for Anelka! Lovely pass by Lampard and Anelka dashed on to the ball to hammer it beyond the stricken Wiland. Superb stuff.
    • 55' Foul by Gronkjaer on Cole. Clumsy tackle. Referee got that spot on. Chelsea have a free-kick.
    • 54' Poor effort from Vingaard. Tried to chip the ball over Cech from fully 25 yards out. Never got his foot under it and Cech claims with ease.
    • 53' N'Doye happy to go to ground, but the referee is happy to ignore him as he appeals for a penalty in the Chelsea box.
    • 52' Torres and Anelka link up before Torres' shot is charged down by a wall of white shirts at the edge of the box.
    • 51' Well, Vingaard guilty of poor play. Tried to pick out a team-mate only to pass straight out of play.
    • 50' Chelsea trying to regroup after the break. They were so much in control in the first period, it felt like a training exercise.
    • 49' N'Doye wins a free-kick from Terry. Just raced straight at him. Not sure if that was a free-kick. N'Doye likes a dive. Little doubt about that.
    • 48' Vingaard uncorks a shot from 25 yards. Decent little effort, but was never going to have the pace to beat Cech, who dives to make a comfortable stop.
    • 47' Martin Vingaard has replaced Cesar Santini for the home side. Surely can't get any worse for them in this half.
    • 46' We are off and running in this second period.
    • 45+1' There goes the whistle for the break! All Chelsea really. The visiting side in complete control. Could score a few more before the night is out.
    • 44' Wiland out to claim the ball as Anelka races with some ferocity into the area. That really typifies Chelsea's attitude tonight: hungry and inventive. Malouda and N'Doye collide before the home man returns to the action.
    • 43' Santin fouls Ivanovic and Chelsea have a free-kick as we head rapidly for the break.
    • 42' Malouda getting so much time and space out wide. N'Doye picks up the ball before Bolanos throws over a cross. Cech will take those all night long.
    • 41' Santin guilty of sloppy play. Copenhagen continue to fall short in trying to construct attacking moves. Bosingwa's cross is nodded over by Anelka.
    • 40' Anelka getting shots in at will. This time he is over the bar from 20 yards out. Chelsea enjoying the freedom of the city at the moment.
    • 39' The home players constantly retreating. Antonsson back to head clear with Torres lurking.
    • 38' Lampard in the engine room of the Chelsea side. Breaking up play. Essien joins the attack before Cole picks out Malouda. Chelsea hogging the football.
    • 37' Gronkjaer well up the park, but a poor header wide in the middle of the visiting area. Unmarked, but he can only head past a post. Sums it up really.
    • 36' Torres is booked for a late one on Bolanos. Bit harsh, but this is Europe. First booking as a Chelsea player. Now all he needs is a goal.
    • 35' Ramires kicks the ball away after being caught offside from Cech's long ball. Lucky to avoid a booking.
    • 34' Doubtful if Chelsea would enjoy as much pressure as this back at the Bridge. The Danes just cannot piece together any real moments of note.
    • 33' Anelka to Malouda before Anelka bursts into the area. Flicks the ball across goal, but no real pace as Wiland claims. Chelsea now with 10 shots on goal to four from the home team.
    • 32' Cole, Lampard and Anelka all trying to join the party, but the Danish side eventually whack the ball out of their area. This is some fine stuff by Chelsea, it must be said.
    • 31' Ramires back on his feet as Copenhagen sportingly give the ball back. Home fans not too happy with that. A few boos, but Chelsea continue on the offensive.
    • 30' Ramires has taken a sore one. Foul by N'Doye. Didn't look too bad, but he seems to be in some trouble.
    • 29' Chelsea already with eight shots on the home goal as Cech wallops a long ball down to Torres. Great play by the visiting keeper.
    • 28' Chelsea pressing high up the park. Forcing the mistakes. Lampard penalised for late one on Claudemir.
    • 27' Great little pass by Lampard to pick out Torres. He is just crowded out. There is going to come a time when Torres will bury one of those. The Danes living dangerously.
    • 26' Chelsea have started this match in the mood, and they continue to go about their business with some relish. Ancelotti is sporting a fetching blue hat.
    • 25' The home fans continue to be heard, but Chelsea are making all the noise on the park. Malouda's cross is nodded over by Anelka. Lovely play by the London side.
    • 24' Chelsea have only lost three of their past 22 matches in the Champions League. That is a formidable record. Anelka deemed to be offside when he was clearly on.
    • 23' Lovely play by Torres. Raced past Zanka, but Wiland is out to make the block. Chelsea going for the throat. This tie could be put to bed this evening.
    • 22' Chelsea continue to dine out on possession. It is becoming evident that there is a class gulf between these teams. There are more goals out there for the visiting team.
    • 21' Referee probably called that one correctly. The home striker was looking to dive, but the referee never bought it. Good officiating.
    • 20' Lampard with a short pass. Picked up by N'Doye, who is deemed to have taken a dive seconds later under pressure from Terry. Controversial moment.
    • 19' A sixth goal in six Champions League ties this season. Gronkjaer gave the ball away out wide, but there was still so much work to be done. Quality stuff from Anelka.
    • 18' GOAL FOR CHELSEA! Anelka wins space in the box before thrashing the ball under Wiland. Too much pace for the keeper to deal with. Just what they wanted.
    • 17' N'Doye is guilty of foul play on Ivanovic. Free-kick to the visiting side.
    • 16' Essien looking to play in Torres. Copenhagen read the danger. Torres certainly not lacking movement this evening. Chelsea continue to look the more dangerous outfit.
    • 15' Torres plays in Malouda with some terrific vision, but the cutback is too near Wiland in the home goal. Easy take for him and Copenhagen live to fight another day.
    • 14' Vital block by Terry as he stands talls to snuff out Pospech's shot. That was fairly travelling. A decent effort, but the visiting side survive.
    • 13' A couple of corners from Malouda come to nothing. Decent delivery, but not decent enough. Bosingwa is deemed to be offside seconds later.
    • 12' Great play by Chelsea! Torres picks out Anelka, who thumps a shot at goal. A white shirt races back to make a vital intervention.
    • 11' Cole bounds down the left. He dashes into the box, but is deemed to be offside. Looked like Lampard flicked that ball onto him.
    • 10' Freezing cold conditions. Minus four and 36,000 crammed into the stadium. Santin tries to warm them up, but his effort is wide from 30 yards and on we go..
    • 9' Cole just shows his frustration seconds later by hoisting an intended cross right out of the park. Hopeless cross. The home side will take heart from that.
    • 8' Lampard tosses the free-kick into the area. The ball breaks to Torres, but that is a poor first touch by Torres. Wiland races from his line to save. Poor stuff from Torres.
    • 7' Anelka throws a ball forward to Cole, but he is bundled to the deck by Zanka. Zanka is booked.
    • 6' Essien takes a tumble in the middle of the park under pressure from Claudemir before Anelka is deemed to be offside.
    • 5' N'Doye fouls Lampard and Chelsea have a free-kick deep in their half which Cech wallops forward.
    • 4' Lampard has a go from distance, but well wide of the target. Worth a pop, but always sailing wide. Bright start by the visiting side.
    • 3' Reports suggesting that the dropped Drogba did not take part in the pre-match warm-up. That wouldn't be the most professional of conduct. We'll wait to see if that was the correct move by Ancelotti. Meanwhile, Anelka breaks.
    • 2' Torres quickly into the play. Races into the box. Chips the ball to the back post, but Malouda hammers the volley well over the bar.
    • 1' We are off and running in this one. Chelsea in their black shirts, the home side in white tops.
    • 19.42 A full house in for this one. Not entirely unexpected. 1800 or so Chelsea fans inside the Parken for this match.
    • 19:40 Torres cost £50m as Chelsea attempted to kick-start their flagging season but he appears to have taken his Liverpool form with him, failing to score or impress in two matches.
    • 19:35 Chelsea, on the other hand, are in poor form. Since the end of the Champions League group stage at the beginning of December, Chelsea have seen their hopes of retaining their league title fade, winning only four of their 10 league matches and failing to score in their last two against Liverpool and Fulham. They also went out of the FA Cup to Everton at the weekend.
    • 19:30 Winger Gronkjaer spent four seasons at Chelsea, playing 88 games and scoring seven goals for the London side. His goal and assist on the final day of the 2002-03 season ensured that Chelsea finished in fourth place ahead of opponents Liverpool and snatched the final Champions League spot.
    • 19:25 Copenhagen are a touch rusty, having not played a competitive fixture since December 7, when they beat Panathinaikos 3-1 at home to claim a place in the last 16 of the Champions League. With the Danish Superligaen taking a winter break until the first week of March, Copenhagen - unbeaten in the league - have played six friendlies since the turn of the year, all against Nordic opposition. Their only loss came on penalties in the Copa del Sol against IFK Gothenburg of Sweden.
