It is goalless between Basel and Chelsea in tonight's Champions League match.

Chelsea are drawing with Basel in the Champions League despite the Swiss side having the majority of the chances.

Basel made a decent start, and twice broke down the left to test the Chelsea defence.

The Blues then needed Petr Cech to prevent the ball sneaking past him after Marco Streller had failed to connect with a free kick.

Chelsea struggled to get to grips with Basel's quick play in the opening 10 minutes, and Jose Mourinho's mood wasn't helped when Cech launched a goal kick out for a Basel throw.

Despite a brief break in the pattern of play, the Swiss side came back at Chelsea and Cech had to be alert to tip Fabian Frei's shot wide of the post.

From the resulting corner, Jon Obi Mikel was forced to clear off the line as the hosts pushed for the opening goal.

Samuel Eto'o so nearly stole a lead for Chelsea, before Mohamed Salah resumed the onslaught and forced Cech into a finger-tip save.

Cech then saved his side again after his defence failed to clear a cross and Salah had poked towards goal.
