Chelsea are well on their way to a place in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages, thanks to a great first half performance against Valencia. They're leading 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, and though they've allowed Valencia to have a majority of the possession, the score is deserved and is an accurate reflection of what's happened on the pitch thus far.
It took just three minutes for the Blues to open up the scoring, with Didier Drogba providing the finish. The Ivorian international has had a fantastic game thus far, playing very well for the entire half. Juan Mata provided a great assist with some fancy footwork before he played a ball across the box for Drogba to finish off.
Ramires added the second in the 21st minute on the counter attack. Drogba provided the assist, coming back for the ball and holding up before playing a great through ball. Victor Ruiz appeared to have great position to make a clearance, but let Ramires run around him and hit the ball into the back of the net.
It's a long way back for Los Che, but they only need to equalize, not win to go through.
