Michael Ballack and Frank Lampard put Chelsea into the Champions League semi-final with a 2-0 victory over Fenerbahce - but there were more goalkeeper worries for boss Avram Grant.

Already without Petr Cech following his facial injury, Carlo Cudicini limped off clutching his right hamstring in the 26th minute at Stamford Bridge.

Hilario came on to protect the slender lead, with Ballack´s early strike edging Chelsea ahead on away goals. Lampard added a second three minutes from full-time.
