That is it, Chelsea win in Europe for second year running.
GOAL - BRANISLAV IVANOVIC - The Serb meets Mata's corner and plants a great header into the corner. Stunning goal to win it.
Garay off injured and is replaced by Jardel.
GOAL - OSCAR CARDOZO - He steps up and slams it down the middle.
Penalty as Lima heads on Cardozo's pass, Azpilicueta handles it.
Rodrigo and Melgarejo make way for Ola John and Lima.
Luisao is booked for poor challenge on Torres, but it is on the edge of the box.
GOAL - FERNANDO TORRES - Chelsea counter from Cech throw, Mata flicks it on for Torres, he holds off Luisao and goes past Arthur and finishes with great aplomb.
Ramires brings down Melgarejo, but strangely no yellow. Ball comes in and Chelsea just about scramble the ball away.
Robiul Miah 'The game overall is shaky....we r nt doing particularly well torres is doing well up front 2 hold the ball...luiz wid crackin passes...however defense need a wake-up call'
Half-time and Rafa Benitez will be happy to get his team back in without a goal being conceded.
Garay is booked for dragging down Oscar who almost broke clear. Cynical foul but needed to be done.
Bradley @28brad 42m @graemebailey 'not a fan of Ramires on the wing - after his stinker at Villa, Moses should be in the starting XI'
Oscar is booked for bringing down Perez about 30-yards from goal.
Shannel Mwakio: I think Torres will shine with the help of Mata even though Cardozo is going to cause problems to Chelsea back four. Final score regular time [90 minutes] Chelsea 3:1 Benfica Mata, Torres and Lampard to score.
@ChelseaFCNewz - @GraemeBailey 'Expecting a big score line tonight! Chelsea 4 - 2 Benfica!'
Paul Begg: 'I am going for a Hazard and Terry-less Chelsea tonight, upset to see those two out of the match but with the midfield of Lampard, Mata, Oscar and Rami - we are far too strong for Benfica. I hope Torres has the game of his life tonight as well.'
Plenty of reaction coming in, all seems to be favouring a Chelsea success...like Dave Lepage, he has mailed in: 'Brilliant team by benitez, Chelsea to win 3-1.'
