  • GOOOOAAAAALLLL!!!! A belting opener from the boys in blue!!! Gallagher's cross for Havertz can't quite culminate in a chance, but the Blues keep the ball and it's played off for Kovacic on the edge of the box. He swings his left boot and smashes the ball into the top-left corner, in a superb first-time finish to put Chelsea into a 1-0 lead!

  • After the ball appears to hit the hand of Kovacic inside Chelsea's box, the Salzburg players are furious when the referee calls play on! Sucic leads the protests, and is booked for dissent by the referee, but we've likely not seen the last of this issue!

  • GOOOOOAAAAALLL!!!! Die Bullen equalise!!!! The hosts break and Okafor passes to Wober on the left. He crosses early for Adamu, who side-foots a half-volley beyond Kepa with such composure, and the ball rolls into the far corner to lock us up at 1-1!! What a response from the Salzburg players, and we've got a game on our hands here!

  • GOOOOAAAAALLLL!!!! What a strike!!! Pulisic shows brilliant skill to evade three Salzburg defenders before finding Havertz. His first touch brings the ball across his body, and the second is a sumptuous left-footed shot which curls towards the top corner and smashes off the bottom of the bar, finally beating Kohn and nestling in the back of the net!! 2-1 to Chelsea, and the excitement levels in this game ramp up once more!
