Sydney V Chelsea
STADIUM AUSTRALIA, SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES, 2 JUNE 2015
|0||HALF TIME SCORE||1|
|7||SHOTS ON GOAL||7|
FULL TIME: Sydney FC 0 – 1 Chelsea FC
It was an entertaining fixture for the most part that produced plenty of chances, but in the end there was just the one goal in it.
Loic Remy found the net via a screamer in the first half, after a strong start from Chelsea which saw Diego Costa and Eden Hazard penetrate Sydney more than once.
Sydney started to find their rhythm shortly after, with Naumoff and Brosque just denied by Cech and then a goal line clearance by Ivanovic.
Costa came off after 40 minutes, but despite his early night he was still crowned man of the match by the fans.
Remy was denied on the goal line as well, after a magical touch by Hazard to get around Janjetovic was over shadowed by Gersbach’s goal line heroism.
Near the end of the game Sydney poured it on like never before and were very unlucky to not find a equaliser.
Blackwood came agonisingly close on two occasions, and Naumoff was denied by the giant frame of John Terry.
Despite late pressure Chelsea held on, and ended their season on a high.

Sydney FC were impressive against Tottenham last Saturday, and the Sky Blues will be looking to build on that promising performance when they take on Chelsea.
Despite a 1-nil loss to Spurs, Sydney created plenty of chances and gave the North London side all they could handle in a surprisingly close fixture.
Tottenham star Harry Kane even took the time to praise Sydney’s performance, giving a special mention to striker Bernie Ibini.
“They had a few good players, both centre-halves were good and the winger, No.11, was quite tricky and had a few skills,” he said.
“It was a solid team unit and they made it hard for us to break them down and that’s why it was only a 1-0 result.”
Despite the game being a friendly, the Sydney FC will be chasing the most famous win in the club’s history.
Chelsea make their way to Sydney to take on the Sky Blues having won the Premier League title back home.
Manager Jose Mourinho has promised to play a full strength side, and will be looking for a result.
“We want a very good match. We feel always responsibility. You cannot lose, you cannot just play for fun, you have to go for a result,” he said.
“I can give already to the coach [Graham] Arnold my team. The front three I will play will be [Loic] Remy, Diego Costa and [Eden] Hazard.”
This is the first ever time Sydney FC and Chelsea FC will lock horns, and a positive result for the Sky Blues will help put Australian football on the map.
Can Sydney FC make history, or will the English champions Chelsea FC overpower the Sky Blues at the ANZ stadium. Join us from 7pm (AEST) to find out.
