Fernando Torres scored twice to give Chelsea FC a healthy lead to take to Russia for their quarter-final second leg as FC Rubin Kazan suffered their first away defeat in this season's UEFA Europa League.

The Spanish international opened the scoring and Victor Moses made it 2-0 just after the half-hour mark as the Londoners made an excellent start. Although Bebras Natcho's penalty before the interval suggested a potentially closer outcome on the night, Torres dispatched a glorious header to leave Chelsea well in charge.
