Chelsea reached the Europa League final for the first time in their history after surviving a first-half scare to defeat Swiss champions FC Basel 3-1 in the second leg of their semi-final on Thursday. 

Chelsea's defender David Luiz celebrates scoring his team's third goal during their Europa League semi-final second leg football match against FC Basel at Stamford Bridge in London on May 2, 2013. Chelsea reached the Europa League final with a 3-1 win over Swiss side Basel for a 5-2 aggregate semi-final victory.

Leading 2-1 from last week's first leg in Switzerland, Chelsea risked elimination after Mohamed Salah's well-taken goal in first-half injury time put the visitors 1-0 up on the night.
