FC Krasnodar vs Chelsea Live Score

90' GOOOAALLLLLLL!! PULISIC MAKES IT 4-0!! Abraham squares it to Pulisic in the box and the American turns and squeezes a shot through the legs of Safonov who will be desparate for this game to end. 4-0!

79' ZIYECH MAKES IT THREE! Pulisic and Werner link up well before the German feeds Ziyech in the box. He still has plenty to do but gets the ball out of his feet and fires a shot into the bottom corner. Game over. 3-0!

76' GOOOOAAAAALLLLL! With Jorginho off, up steps Werner who makes no mistake, blasting it past Safonov to double the Chelsea lead. 2-0!

75' PENALTY CHELSEA!! Pulisic has a pop at goal and it's adjudjed to have hit the arm of Martynovich. It looks harsh as it hit his thigh first.
70' Ziyech is pulling the strings in the middle and feeds Chilwell on the right-hand side. The full-back's delivery is good but well defended. Azpilicueta then has the chance to cross from the other side but it's too near the keeper who gathers.
68' The delivery is no good this time and Chelsea are off the hook, for now.
67' Straight up the other end and Berg has an effort on goal from a tight angle. It's on target but Mendy is able to parry clear before the hosts win another corner.
67' BIG CHANCE!! Chelsea beat the Krasnodar press and it's four on three momentarily. Havertz breaks with options right and left. He opts for Ziyech who gets a shot away but it's an easy save for Safonov.
65' Poor from Utkin whose effort hits the wall. The ball comes back to him for another go but his volley is way wide and out for a goal-kick.
65' Utkin wins a free-kick in a dangerous area for the hosts after being clipped by Kovacic. This is a chance.
63' Mendy plays it short from a goal-kick which highlights the issues Chelsea are having. The play is too slow and the movement poor which is making it easy for Krasnodar to crowd the spaces.

61' Vilhena does very well to win the ball back after a loose Krasnodar throw. His delivery is cleared to Chernov who attempts a volley but it's over the bar.
60' Havertz shows his defensive qualities, sliding in to dispossess Kaio who was attempting to break from the back.
59' Werner and Smolnikov come together and the Krasnodar man is down, but Chelsea keep playing. Chilwell has space on the left flank to pick out a cross but it's well overhit before play is halted.
57' Zouma is down after a clash but I think he will be fine to continue. Tomori is warming up just in case.
55' OFF THE BAR!! Finally, Krasnodar whip the ball in straight from the corner and it causes mayhem. Zouma does well initially before the ball falls to Gazinskiy to strike. It isn't the cleanest volley but it hits straight into the ground before looping up and crashing off the bar. 

54' Ramirez breaks and finds Olsson in space on the right. The midfielder feeds Gazinskiy whose shot is deflected for another corner.
53' Ramirez gets the better of Azpilicueta and fires a low cross into the box. It can't make it past the fist man however, and Chelsea come away with possession.
52' Olsson plays it short to Smolnikov again before receiving it back in an offside position. Another waste.
52' Jorginho slips and gives the home side another corner.

51' With his assist, Kai Havertz has now been involved in seven goals in his last seven UEFA European appearances for Bayer Leverkusen and Chelsea (4 goals, 3 assists).
49' SHOT! Chelsea are on the attack and when the ball is cleared to Kovacic, the Croatian launches a volley that is just wide of the mark.
48' That's another short corner from the hosts and again when the ball comes in it's straight out of play. They need to do better in these situations.
47' Krasnodar have a corner after some nice play from Berg and Olsson. Azpilicueta had loads of time to let it go for a goal-kick but didn't get the call from Mendy.
46' Hudson-Odoi is caught offside early as the Blues look to make a fast start.

46' We're back underway here in Russia.

45' + 1' Ziyech lifts the ball into Havertz who can't direct his header on target.
45' + 1' There will be one minute of added time.
45' The ball in misses its target and Krasnodar break with Vilhena. He feeds Olsson who gets a cross in but Mendy catches comfortably.
45' Chelsea have a corner as we approach half time.
45' Callum Hudson-Odoi is the second teenager to score a CL goal for Chelsea after Reece James.
43' CHANCE! Azpilicueta's delivery is missed by the keeper and Havertz has a chance to head in Chelsea's second. The German fails to hit the target before the linesman's flag is up for offside.
41' Ramirez surges forward looking for the equaliser. he tries to find Smolnikov who has made a good run but the pass is misplaced and the chance is gone.
39' That really is a howler from the promising young keeper.

K. Havertz
37' Assist Kai Havertz

C. Hudson-Odoi
37' GOOOAAAAALLLL! 1-0 CHELSEA! Ziyech fires the ball in to Havertz who feeds Hudson-Odoi on the left. The Englishman cuts in and fires a low shot that somehow squirms under Safonov and into the net. He won't want to see that one back. Chelsea will be delighted. VAR is checking but it looks fine. 

36' Havertz attempts to find Werner but Kaio is alert and defends well.
34' The hosts have a free-kick but Olsson's delivery is poor. Werner breaks and finds Hudson-Odoi whose ball in is just waiting to be met in the box but there's nobody there.
33' Lampard is encouraging his players to move the ball faster. They could do worse than to listen. It has been a little laboured. 
32' Rudiger's long diagonal ball finds Azpilicueta exquisitely. He links up with Ziyech before losing possession. The away side are lacking quality in the final third so far.
31' Ziyech is crowded by three Krasnodar players before being clipped by Utkin. It looks a sore one but goes unpunished by the referee.

29' Ziyech cuts in from the right and works some space to get a shot away from just outside the box. It lacks the sting to trouble Safonov who gathers easily.

28' The home side look very well drilled in what they're trying to do. They are allowing Chelsea's back four to saunter up to the halfway line before they press in numbers and attempt to counter.
26' Up the other end and Havertz was inches from finding Ziyech in space for what would have been a great chance to open the scoring.

25' Lovely play from Kaio who surges forward from the back. He feeds Berg who gets a shot away which is well blocked by Jorginho.
23' Far from vintage stuff from Chelsea so far. 
K. Olsson
Yellow Card
22' Olsson picks up the first yellow card of the game for a challenge on Havertz.
19' JUST WIDE! Nice play from Krasnodar as Berg and Vilhena link up well. Vilhena has a dig and his deflected effort has Mendy rooted, but it's just wide much to the relief of the visitors.
18' Chelsea continue to attack in numbers. Krasnodar are content to sit back and strike on the counter.
16' Jorginho has missed two of his last four penalties for Chelsea, having scored each of the first eight he took for the club.

14' MISS! Jorginho sent the keeper the wrong way with his usual run-up but he is denied by the post before Werner missed on the follow-up. What a let-off for the home side.

13' PENALTY CHELSEA!! Azpilicueta's cross finds Werner who is clipped by Kaio. No doubts for the ref.
12' 12 minutes in and Chelsea have had over 75 per cent possession.
10' Ziyech is back in the box after being well found by Havertz. He tangles with Ramirez and goes down claiming a penalty but the referee is having none of it.
9' SAVE! Azpilicueta feeds Ziyech who fires a shot low but Safonov gets down well to save at his near post.
8' Hudson-Odoi and Werner link up on the left before the play switches to Azpilicueta on the other side. The Spaniard's touch lets him down and Krasnodar reclaim possession. 
6' Krasnodar are making it very difficult for Chelsea to find any early rhythm here.
5' The corner is taken short before a cross comes in, but it's straight out of play for a goal-kick. 
4' SAVE! Mendy is forced into action as Havertz gives the ball away this time. Utkin bears down on goal and his low shot needs to be tipped wide of the post for a corner. 
3' Sloppy from Chelsea and Berg gets the first shot away for the hosts. It's well over the crossbar, though.
3' Hudson-Odoi makes the first move forward but can't make any inroads into what looks like an organised Krasnodar defence.
2' Chelsea are dominating the early possession, passing it around comfortably at the back.
1' Referee Ali Palabiyik blows his whistle and we’re underway here at Krasnodar Stadium.
