A Chilean goal from Frenchman Olivier Giroud in the 68th minute gave English Chelsea the victory (0-1) and the advantage in the knockout round of the Champions League against Atlético de Madrid in Romania

Somewhat beautifully made, but in which Giroud seemed clearly offside, it was validated by the intervention of the video referee who discovered that the ball finished off by the Chelsea striker came from the Atlético Mario Hermoso center-back, so the German referee Felix Byrch validated the report.

The goal broke Atlético’s approach at the National Stadium in Bucharest (Romania), where they had to play at home due to the impossibility of Chelsea traveling to Madrid due to border restrictions due to the pandemic.

With up to six players defending the rival attack, the rojiblanco team was not able to put together clear counterattacks and will be at a disadvantage to London.

In those of Simeone, Luis Suárez was titleholder and played the entire game, while Lucas Torreira was a substitute and entered at 82 ‘for Saúl.

The rematch duel will be played on March 17 at Stamford Bridge where the colchoneros will be forced to win if they want to reach the quarterfinals.
