Chelsea secured a remarkable victory against Athletico Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League clash. Thomas Tuchel's team has extended their unbeaten record to 14 games. It was a well-deserved result for Chelsea who looked really different in the final third today.
Chelsea dominated possession at the early stages of the game and looked likely to score a goal. However, Athletico did well to keep them out. Diego Simeone's men would have grabbed a goal at the other end if they were awarded a penalty for Azpilicueta's challenge on Carasco.
It was a clear penalty call but referee decided to wave play on. Azpilicueta was really lucky to have gone away with such challenge. Why didn't the referee check the monitor to view the incidence? That's a question football fans are asking at the moment.
I guess this is the worst decision a referee would make in the Champions League this season. As a referee, you can make such an error in a crucial game like this. The outcome of the game could have been different if Athletico were awarded a penalty.
