Oscar netted within 33 seconds of coming on as a substitute to ensure Chelsea FC claimed a 1-0 victory at AC Sparta Praha in their UEFA Europa League round of 32 first leg.

Despite a promising start, the reigning European champions struggled to break down a compact Sparta back line and were matched for long periods until the Brazilian playmaker's sixth goal in Europe this season ended home hopes of a draw.
