LONDON (AFP) - Second-half goals from Ramires and Cesc Fabregas gave Chelsea a 2-1 win at Ferencvaros in a game to mark the opening of the Hungarian side's new stadium in Budapest.

Former West Brom and Fulham player Zoltan Gera had scored the first goal at the new ground on the quarter-hour mark but Jose Mourinho's side hit back after the interval.

Ramires volleyed in on 50 minutes and Fabregas hit the winner with a fine individual goal 10 minutes from time.

Chelsea complete their pre-season at home to Real Sociedad on Tuesday before opening their Premier League campaign at promoted Burnley on Monday, August 18.
