Chelsea 0-1 Corinthians

70' Paolo Guerrero


Chelsea fell to Brazilian side Corinthians in Japan to reliquish their third trophy chance this year.

The game was delicately poised in a skirmish-like 0-0 situation, and Paolo Guerrero was the man to break the deadlock.

His looping header caught Petr Cech and co. out as it sailed in via the underside of the crossbar, leaving the Timao to see out a tense, but typical, 1-0 win.

Fernando Torres had a golden chance to equalise in the closing minutes but fired straight at goalkeeper Cassio from six yards.
