Chelsea drew 1-1 in an in-house match yesterday thanks to goals from Armando Broja and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
The Blues were scheduled to play Drogheda United, however the match was cancelled due to a COVID outbreak.
Instead, the team played a match behind closed doors between the players that traveled to Dublin, according to the club.
With Davide Zappacosta driving along goal but finding no one to convert, the bibbed side grew into the game.
Hudson-Odoi scored the game's first goal within the last half , taking over the ball from Dujon Sterling and driving at the goal with pace, ripping the net open.
Ten minutes later, the opposing team equalized, with Marcos Alonso finding Ziyech, who delivered a pass to Broja for a close-range finish.
Broja had a chance to double his tally, but Danny Drinkwater made a great tackling to deny the attempt.
On July 27, the Blues will play Bournemouth in their next pre-season match.
