We're 45 minutes in and so far things are still at 0-0. Both teams have had a couple of good chances but Chelsea at looking marginally the better side, which isn't too bad going since it's an away leg in the Champions League quarterfinals.
Chelsea are very capable of getting an away goal here, and if we do that'd be pretty neat. The closest we've come is via a deflected long-range effort from Raul Meireles which Artur struggled with, and although there's not been much from open play so far it looks as though we can get some joy from Ramires and Fernando Torres operating behind the Benfica defence.
So far so good!
