Chelsea thrashed 10-man Qarabag 4-0 this evening in Baku, Azerbaijan, to progress into the last 16 stage of the Champions League.
Willian hit a brace with other strikes coming from the penalty spot for Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas to complete the rout
Rashad Sadygov fouled Willian inside the area and was subsequently sent off. From then, the game was effectively over.
Chelsea top Group C at the moment with 10 point with one match remaining, but Roma can reclaim the top berth if they beat Atletico Madrid later tonight.
The Blues return to London from their journey to Azerbaijan to prepare for the match of the day on Saturday when they go up to the North-West to face Liverpool in the Premier League.
