Chelsea crush Slovak champs Maribor 6-0
English club Chelsea crushed Slovenian champions Maribor 6-0 in their European Champions League Group G match at Stamford Bridge. Eden Hazard scored twice while Loic Remy, Didier Drogba, John Terry and a Mitja Viler own goal Tuesday night completed the rout and kept Chelsea’s unbeaten run this season intact, reports Xinhua. Remy put Chelsea ahead in the 13th minute by driving home a left-foot effort from the edge of the area. But he was injured and replaced by Didier Drogba three minutes later.

The Cote d’Ivoire striker made it 2-0 with a penalty kick, which was his 43rd Champions League goal. It was Drogba’s first goal for Chelsea since his decisive strike in the 2012 Champions League final and his 158th goal overall in 342 appearances for the Blues. Captain John Terry slid home Cesc Fabregas’ low cross in the 31st minute to make it 3-0. Mitja Viler’s own goal handed Chelsea the fourth goal in the 54th minute before Hazard scored the fifth from a penalty.

The Belgian international then added a sixth, a minute before the end. Chelsea, who drew at home to Schalke and beat Sporting Lisbon in the second match, lead Group G with seven points, followed by Schalke with two draws and one win.
