Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo was happy with their late show at Champions League opponents Nordsjaelland.

The European champions avoided another winless outing on the continent this evening thanks to three goals in the final 11 minutes of a flattering 4-0 victory in Copenhagen.

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.

"We were a bit slow out of the blocks, even if we had chances to score. We scored one and had a couple of other chances.

"The second goal was important for us, to settle us down. We were sharper and better in the second half, and once we scored that second goal, we knew we'd win the game.

"They play, no matter what, their football and it's not easy.

"There are no pushovers in the Champions League - look at Bayern [Munich] losing, and [Manchester] United having to come back."
