Don't forget Atletico [Madrid] are in trouble because they drew twice against Qarabag.
However, at the beginning of the match in wednesday, the local team stumbled in the very first time.
Chelsea's domestic picture starts to hot up - starting with a trip to Liverpool on Saturday afternoon whilst Qarabag will be playing for pride in their final Champions League Group C game - against Roma on Tuesday 5th December.
However, captain Sadiqov tripped Willian in the d-box for blocking goalscoring opportunity which also earned him a red.
Chelsea doubled their lead 15 minutes later with some great build-up play between Willian and Hazard, with the Brazilian receiving the ball back and stroking it past the on-rushing Ibrahim Sehic, giving the Blues a firm hold on the game. So, Chelsea got a penalty and through the spot kick Belgian striker Eden Hazard took the team ahead in just 21st minutes of the game. On the other end of the spectrum though, with all due respect, Qarabag are hardly the best team in the world and it is in games like this, that the backup brigade has to impress in order to stake a claim in the first team.
Cesc Fabregas scored their second penalty before Willian netted again to knock Qarabag out of the competition.
In the meantime, in 73rd minutes of the game, Cesc Fabregas made the 3rd goal through the penalty. So, by scoring four goals the Blues secured the match by 4 - 0. Russian Federation goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev recorded a first clean sheet in the group stage since 2006 - ending a staggering run of 43 matches conceding a goal - as CSKA condemned Benfica to a fifth straight loss in Group A. Georgi Schennikov's cool finish steered CSKA into a 13th-minute lead in Moscow before the hosts grabbed a second through an own goal from Brazilian defender Jardel. However, now with 8 points Italian club Roma is in 2nd position where with 6 points Spanish club Atletico Madrid is in 3rd position.
After the two consecutive defeats to Arsenal and Chelsea in September 2016, Conte change in Chelsea formation at Stamford Bridge.
The visitors quickly added a second following a stunning passage of play which ended with Hazard backheeling the ball for Willian to side-foot home.
