With their recent found form in the Premiere League under their new manager Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea were hoping to replicate such form in the Champions League as they go against Atlético in a second leg clash at Stamford Bridge.
Going into the game, Chelsea had a 1-0 advantage against their opponents but would be without keys players like Mason Mount and others who are are currently missing from the starting line up due to suspension and injury.
Chelsea began the game on a high note as they were troubling Atlético Madrid's defence despite having a 1-0 lead which many thought they were actually going to try to defend, the break through finally came from a counter-attack which resulted in a Hakim Ziyech goal in the 34th minute to give Chelsea a comfortable 1-0 lead in the first half.
In a bid to bring back his team into the game, Atlético's coach made a couple of changes during the break while he continues to give them directions from the coaching line, they however failed to score as Chelsea were able to get another goal in the closing minutes to seal the game, it ended 3-0 on aggregate in Chelsea favour.
With that hard fought victory, it would interest you to know that Thomas Tuchel has just broken another record because according to a report which I obtained from my source SB NATION, this would be the first time that Chelsea would be qualifying for the Champions League quarter since 2014, check out the screenshot below:
This is a clear evidence that Chelsea would continue to be witnessing a massive transformation under Thomas Tuchel.
Do you think Chelsea can win the Premiere League this Season?
