Eden Hazard scored with a wonderful strike two minutes into added time to break AC Sparta Praha's resistance and propel Chelsea FC into the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League.

Chelsea's glory nights on the way to last year's UEFA Champions League crown seemed far, far away as new signing David Lafata's first goal for the Czech club enabled Sparta to tie the aggregate scores. Although the Blues held sway after that, Sparta always managed to get in a defensive block, edging towards extra time before Hazard produced his magic.
