Terni exacted revenge by the same scoreline they lost to Chelsea in the previous batch with a commanding performance.  The scoreline could've been greater but for a Bojan penalty miss.  After a cagey opening Terni took the lead when Jesus powered in a header from a Bojan corner.  The lead should've been doubled when Prieto was bundled over in the area however Bojan's spotkick was well saved.  The lead was doubled 10 mins into the 2nd half, Prieto releasing Maicon who calmly slotted the ball past the onrushing keeper. 

Chelsea hauled themselves back into the game when Forsberg found space in the area to dig out a cross for Balotelli to power in a header.  The game was effectively put to bed with 12 minutes remaining Maicon following up a keeper parry from a Prieto shot.
