Chelsea London won their first UEFA European Cup match against Atlético Madrid. Blue minimally overpowered the “mattress”. This meeting took place within the 1/8 finals of the UEFA Champions League.
In the first half, the teams practically did not create dangerous moments. There was a lot of fighting on the field and very little football that the fans would like. The rivals made several raids on each other’s gates, but they did not end in anything significant.
In the second half, Chelsea managed to break open the defensive lines of the mattress. On 69 minutes of the game, a spectacular goal was scored by the French forward Olivier Giroud. Olivier struck effectively through himself and caught Jan Oblak by surprise. First, the referee recorded an offside position, but soon scored a goal for Giroud, using the help of a video assistant.
Simeone’s wards did not manage to answer with any dignity. A very bad match in terms of attacking play was played today by “mattress”. Chelsea are close to the Champions League quarter-finals.
Atletico – Chelsea 0: 1 (0: 0)
Goal: Жиру, 69 (0: 1).
