    • Chelsea
    • Finished! A decent game but not the result Chelsea would have wanted.
    • 90+3 Ivanovic is up front now. Wins a free kick off Huettenbrenner. Chelsea load the box. And that is the end of the game.
    • 90+2 Terry chests the ball to Romeu who gives it back as the captain goes on a run forward but it comes to nothing.
    • 90+1 Chelsea still with the ball but Cech has it. Not where they want to be!
    • 90' Looks like the game will end in the Chelsea half as WAC waste time in the corner of the pitch. Winning throw after throw.
    • 89' Barnstorming challenge from Ake on Kerhe on the halfway line. Through the back of him though and that is a foul.
    • 88' Great ball by Chalobah towards Ivanovic who found himself almost in on goal but Rnic does well to get back and cut out the pass.
    • 87' Kerhe tackles Swift and tries to break but the Chelsea youngster gets it back and attempts a shot from distance but the keeper saves well.
    • 86' Poor free kick by Boga who hits it into the wall. Lucky to get a corner. He goes over to take but it is very deep and goes long.
    • 85' Rnic gets booked for a silly foul. Given away a free kick 25 yards out.
    • 84' Chelsea smell blood here and go for the win.
    • 83' Great goal by Jeremie Boga! Absolutely brilliant run through the middle of the pitch. He plays it to Romeu who gives it back to him. Under pressure he keeps his balance and finishes well into the corner. Lovely goal.
    • 83' Kerhe absolutely does Solanke and it looked like a foul as the defender barged over the Austrian but the ref gives nothing.
    • 82' Corner to WAC.
    • 81' Chalobah comes on for Matic who looks a bit uncomfortable after a tackle.
    • 80' Salah attempts a run down the left wing but Kerhe is there to stick a leg out and halt his progress.
    • 79' Chelsea with all of the ball now but susceptible to the break.
    • 78' Corner to Chelsea after Terry bursts forward and gets tackled. Boga to take. He swings it in to Ivanovic but his header goes wide.
    • 77' Brown charges forward with the ball and gives it wide to Matic but he is surrounded and does well to get a cross in but WAC are able to clear.
    • 76' Salah keeps the ball in on the far side and lays it back to Ivanovic. The ball is spread to Ake who tries to get it line for Brown but the attacker fouls and WAC get a reprieve.
    • 75' Boga plays the ball into Ake who gives it back to him. He tries to find Solanke but the Austrian side have enough numbers back to clear.
    • 74' Messy period of play. It's like watching header football.
    • 72' Lovely floated ball into Kerhe behind the Chelsea defence. He gets a touch on it but unfortunately the ball hit his other leg and went out for a goal kick.
    • 71' Free kick given away for a late tackle on Ake who got to a 50-50 ball first in the middle of the park.
    • 70' Great cross from Palla who finds Silvio in the middle. He gets his header on target but Cech is able to tip it over. Almost 2-0!
    • 69' Salah tries a very intricate ball over the top but it runs all the way through to Kofler.
    • 68' Salentinig with a great run at the Chelsea defence. He takes a good shot but Cech is equal to it and clears the danger.
    • 67' Loose pass from Terry puts Ake in trouble but he manages to rescue the situation with a strong tackle.
    • 66' Matic turns away from Silvio and drives forward. He plays a ball towards Brown but it is blocked for a corner. Boga takes short to Ake. He crosses to the far post but it is cleared.
    • 65' SO far what we're being shown is replays of the goal. A lot.
    • 64' Lovely turn by Salah and he sprints past Palla but the defender does well to track him all the way and win th eball back in his own half.
    • 63' Long throw from Ivanovic finds Zouma but his header is weak despite his best efforts to generate power and Kofler gathers.
    • 62' Boga dribbles round two players and shifts it on to his right foot onthe edge of the area. He lets fly but it gets blocked and out for a corner. He takes but is cleared at the near post.
    • 61' Scrappy play as Ake gets away with a reverse ball in the left back position but Terry is there again to clear up.
    • 60' WAC come forward down the left with Silvio as he lays in Berger but Terry gets a toe on it to clear.
    • 59' Filipe Luis comes off for Nathan Ake while Oriol Romeu comes on for Van Ginkel. Bamford also makes way for Solanke.
    • 58' Chelsea attempt to come forward through Boga but he is tackled by Putsche.
    • 56' Chelsea have to come out and attack now and Filipe Luis has already visibly moved ten yards further up the pitch.
    • 55' ITS A GOAL! A great cross from Berger is headed back from the far post to Jacobo who lays it to Silvio. He then smashes it in despite the best efforts of Cech.
    • 54' Jacobo nutmegs Zouma and gets into the box but his touch is just a bit too close to Ivanovic who can clear.
    • 53' Ynclan burst forward from midfield and laid it wide to Trdina but his cross was deep and Cech was able to gather.

    • 48' Filipe Luis attempts a dribble down the left but is stopped by Trdina.
    • 47' Same as the forst half, Chelsea with some decent possession and win a throw high up the pitch. Ivanovic throws it into the box but a foul is given for a push of some sort by Zouma.
    • 46' And we're underway again in the second half here! Can Chelsea up their game and put the Austrian side to bed? Jeremie Boga has come on for Chelsea in place of Baker.
    • And that is half time! A relatively poor half from both sides though Chelsea may just have edged it with slightly better chances.
    • 45' Zulj plays it inside to Sollbauer who plays it forward to Jacobo but the ball runs loose and Ivanovic is able to clear.
    • 44' Chelsea in possession again but nothing doing going forward.
    • 43' Matic slashes one wide to Salah but he gives the ball away to Zulj but he can't skip past van Ginkel on the edge of the area before getting his shot away. Unlucky indeed.
    • 42' Lovely cross by Filipe Luis but it is just too close to Kofler who reacted well to get out and claim it befor eBamford could attack it.
    • 41' Chelsea try and work the line. Brown does well to hold off Baldauf and spread it to Terry who tries to get Chelsea underway again.

    • 39' WAC's turn to pass the ball about at the back...
    • 38' Chance! This time WAC get down the left wing with Jacobo who pings it back into the box but luckily Filipe Luis was there to cover and clear into the air before Cech punched clear.

    • 34' Pedestrian pace this game is being played at/ Van Ginkel had time to walk to a miscontrolled ball there.
    • 33' Salah was in acres of space on the left and Bamford tried to find him but it was a lazy ball easily cut out by Weber.
    • 32' Chelsea with the ball now just popping it along the back four. Ivanovic goes long but it runs through to the goalkeeper.
    • 31' WAC in possession with Weber but he overcomplicates the ball down the line to Trdina and Chelsea are able to emerge with the ball.
    • 30' Trdina plays a huge through ball over to Jacobo with Van Ginkel the last man but he makes the header before being helped out by Zouma to clear the danger.
    • 29' Chelsea corner taken by Baker but the defender clears as Zouma came in but it goes for another corner.

    • 24' WAc now enjoying some of the ball here as Kofler though is forced long.

    • 21' Jacobo is over the ball. He flicks it in but Matic gets his head to it. It flicks on towards goal but Cech is out to gather.
    • 20' Van Ginkel gives away a free kick on the half way line for a silly push on Jacobo.
    • 19' Brown takes a great touch around Putsche before trying to lay in Bamford but his run was just ahead of where the pass was played and WAC are able to clear.
    • 18' Slow again as Chelsea are just happy to have the ball.

    • 4' Baldauf goes scurrying down the left wing and Ivanovic makes the tackle to give away a corner.
    • 3' Being played at a very pre-season pace at the moment. Terry, Zouma and Van Ginkel enjoying possession but in their own half.
    • 2' Slow start here. Decent switch of play from Sollbauer over to Jacobo but nothing of any note. Bamford attempts to flick a long ball on for Baker but the keeper gathers.
    • 1' And we're under way here in Klaugenfort. Can Chelsea get a positive result and an injury-free 90 minutes?
    • 18.29 Just a couple of minutes until kick off now. And the starting line up for WAC: Kofler, Seebacher, Weber, Baldauf, Zulj, Ynclan, Trdina, Putsche, Standfest, Sollbauer, Henzig.
    • 18:25 Still nothing on the RZ Pellets WAC team to face Chelsea tonight. Looks like we might have to wait for kick off to find out! As for Chelsea, we're sure they will be hoping to score plenty and get through the 90 minutes with no serious injuries or niggles.
    • 18:20 Well the big news there is that Filipe Luis will make his first Chelsea appearance starting at left-back. No place for any of Chelsea's World cup contingent, not even in the squad. Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas, Gary Cahill, Fernando Torres nor Thibault Courtois make the squad.
    • 18:15 TEAMS - Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry, Filipe Luis, Van Ginkel, Matic, Salah, Baker, Brown, Bamford. Subs: Beeney, Delac, Ake, Romeu, Chalobah, Christensen, Swift, Boga, Solanke. /// RZ Pellets WAC: No news yet. We'll bring it as soon as we know!
