The match looked like it could go either way until shortly before the hour mark when Samuel Eto'o capitalised on a defenisve slip-up to put the Blues ahead.

Four minutes later we were left with a real uphill battle as Younes Kaboul was shown the red card for impeding Eto'o in the box. Up stepped Eden Hazard to make it 2-0 from the spot.

We battled on valiantly with 10 men, but two late goals from substitute Demba Ba increased the margin of defeat.
