CL: Chelsea 2-1 Benfica (agg 3-1) - Chelsea v Barca

Frank Lampard, Chelsea FC v SL Benfica - UEFA Champions League Quarter Final

Champions League: Chelsea 2-1 Benfica (agg 3-1)

Frank Lampard opened the scoring after a hotly-disputed penalty, one of several debatable decisions that included the first-half dismissal of Benfica captain Maxi Pereira.

Javi Garcia managed a 85th-minute equaliser, before substitute Raul Meireles scored to seal the home win under Roberto Di Matteo.

After winning 1-0 in Lisbon last week, the Blues' victory under boss Di Matteo will face Barca the holding champs.

A superb Petr Cech save from Cardozo's first-time shot kept Chelsea ahead. Cech came to the rescue again to tip Djalo's header behind but could not stop Garcia from heading in Aimar's corner.

In stoppage-time Meireles ran 40 yards and scored.
