Chelsea record their biggest ever victory but becomes the first holder to exit at the group stages of UEFA champions league

Champions chelsea leave UEFA on a high win night

Chelsea fought hard against the dying of their Champions League light, recording their biggest-ever victory in the competition but it was the most mournful and Pyrrhic of victories. Chelsea’s destiny was decided 1,700 miles away in Donetsk.

The first holders to fall at the group stage, Chelsea were condemned to the Thursday night sideshow of the Europa League when Juventus prevailed in the Donbass Arena.
Fernando Torres rediscovered his goal-scoring touch too late for Chelsea's Champions League hopes on Wednesday, with the English side becoming the first holders to exit at the group stage despite a 6-1 thrashing of FC Nordsjaelland.

On a bittersweet night for Chelsea, Torres ended a month-long goal drought by scoring twice in a match for the first time this season, and manager Rafa Benitez claimed his first win in his fourth fixture.
