Basel 1 Chelsea 2: Europa League semi-final as it happened

Basel 1 Chelsea 2: David Luiz's free-kick at the death wins it for the Blues after Victor Moses's opener at St Jakob-Park

David Luiz smashed home a late free-kick to put Chelsea in control of their Europa League semi-final against Basel.

The Blues went ahead after just 12 minutes when Victor Moses headed home Frank Lampard’s corner.

But Basel equalised in the 87th minute when Fabian Schär scored from the spot after Cesar Azpilicueta was controversially adjudged to have fouled Valentin Stocker in the box.

However, Luiz had the final say when he smashed home a low set-piece with the last kick of the game to give the Blues the lead in the tie ahead of next week’s return leg at Stamford Bridge.
