The Spain striker scored the second goal for the Champions League winners just 16 seconds into the second half yesterday.

 
"He's doing well. He is much sharper," said Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez, who was hired last month. "I hope it will be more of the same in the future."
   
Torres has now scored in three consecutive matches for the first time since joining Chelsea for around USD 80 million in January 2011 from Liverpool, where he also played under compatriot Benitez.
     
And with 12 goals now this season, Torres has surpassed last season's haul as he enters the second half of the
campaign.
     
"It's a run, and that's good for him and good for us," Benitez said. "Hopefully it will continue."
     
The final on Sunday will be the first for Chelsea and Copa Libertadores champ Corinthians, which edged Egypt's Al-Ahly 1-0 in the other semifinal on Wednesday.
   
"It was a good game for us," Benitez said. "We had good tempo, good play and a lot of possibilities for us. I am pleased with the performance of our team."
     
Torres put Chelsea up 2-0 when he took a pass from Eden Hazard and hit a left-footed shot that deflected in off aMonterrey defender. Two minutes later, Juan Mata's cross was knocked in by Monterrey defender Darvin Chavez for an own goal
that made it 3-0.
     
CONCACAF champion Monterrey finally scored through Aldo De Nigris in injury time. Monterrey will face Al-Ahly in the third-place game on Sunday.
     
Chelsea scored the only goal of the first half in the 17th minute. Oscar made a nifty back-heel pass to Ashley Cole, who centered the ball to Mata, who powered a low drive from 15 meters.
