UEFA Champions League

UEFA Reacts After Emerson Scored His First CL Goal With His First Touch Against Athletico Madrid

Chelsea secured a 2-0 win against Athletico Madrid in what was a thrilling game of football. Thomas Tuchel secured another impressive win against Simeone for the second time in two weeks. Chelsea remains unbeaten in all competitions since Thomas Tuchel took over on the 26th January this year.

What else would you have expected from a new manager. With nine wins, four draws and eleven clean sheets, Tuchel is definitely the right man for the job at Chelsea. Let's slide away from the achievement of Tuchel at Stamford Bridge.

Another Chelsea player broke a record in the Champions League after scoring his first goal of the competition. It's no other person than Emerson Palmeiri! The sensational defender was replaced Marcus Alonso in the 92nd minute only to score a minute later.

Emerson secured the win for Chelsea with a remarkable strike at the closing stages of the game. Emerson's shot was his first touch of the game and he would be glad it went straight into the back of the net.

UEFA was quick to react to Emerson's first goal of the competition. The governing body congratulated Emerson on its official page after the game. Check out their reaction below:
