Di Matteo happy with away day win

Published Add your comment

Roberto Di Matteo was hoping Chelsea's late show against Nordsjaelland on Tuesday night would signal the start of better away days to come in the Champions League.

The European champions avoided another winless outing on the continent thanks to three goals in the final 11 minutes of a flattering 4-0 victory in Copenhagen. It was far from a walk in the Parken before that as the Blues threatened to blow another lead, having thrown away a two-goal advantage in their Group E opener against Juventus two weeks earlier.

They also surrendered leads in all of their away group matches last term, and manager Di Matteo said: "It's difficult to win away in the Champions League. We're pleased. We got a clean sheet, another one, and scored four goals. Who knows? Hopefully some more will come away from home."
