Chelsea through despite second Basel defeat

Mohamed Salah gave FC Basel 1893 real hope of reaching the UEFA Champions League knockout stages as he struck the only goal of the game to beat a Chelsea FC side who advance regardless.

Basel had stunned the 2012 European champions at Stamford Bridge on matchday one and Murat Yakin's men showed the result was no fluke with an equally impressive display. Salah scored in England, and again confirmed his prodigious talent with a coolly taken effort to lift the Swiss title holders above FC Schalke 04 in Group E. A draw in Gelsenkirchen on matchday six will see Basel through to the last 16 while Chelsea, who progress despite defeat, need to win at home to FC Steaua București to be certain of topping the section.

Match in 5

  • Basel complete double over Chelsea, who still qualify
  • Late Salah goal proves the difference
  • Blues only register one shot on goal
  • Basel go second, a point ahead of third-placed Schalke
  • Yakin's charges set up decider at German side on matchday six

Reaction

To beat Chelsea twice is historic for this club. I’m extremely happy for the team and for everyone who was in the stadium.

It was a bad performance and we deserved the defeat. Other results mean we qualified and that's the only positive from tonight.
