Nicolas Anelka's day has ended just past the 70 minute mark, with Didier Drogba coming on. Two interesting notes about this substitution. First, Sky Sports had reported that neither Drogba nor Mikel John Obi had cleats on, while sitting on the bench, their flat shoes an apparent sign Carlo Ancelotti had no intention of using either. Second, Drogba is on at the same time as Fernando Torres, the first time since Liverpool's visit to Stamford Bridge that the duo has played simultaneously.
Within moments of the change, Torres had a danger moment, talking the ball to the left of Johan Wiland's goal, thread a ball back into the six. The slow rolling ball begged a Chelsea player to run onto it, but Copenhagen were able to clear.
Now in the 79th minute, the match is playing out like a foregone conclusion. Chelsea's two goal lead, obtained in the 54th minute, has not been meaningfully threatened by either Copenhagen or the Blues. This match is set to go to London with the favorites up two.
