Atletico Madrid 0-1 Chelsea

An overhead kick in the 68th minute from Oliver Giroud was enough to secure a 1-0 victory at Arena Nationala in Bucharest for Chelsea, with coronavirus travel restrictions preventing the tie taking place at the Wanda Metropolitano.

While 34-year-old Giroud had to wait for a lengthy VAR check, the goal was eventually given – his sixth in the competition this season, which handed Chelsea a tight first-leg advantage.

An early goal from Robert Lewandowski got the scoring going for the Bavarians before goals from Jamal Musiala and Leroy Sane handed the Germans a strong lead at half time.

Matters got worse in the second half as Francesco Acerbi put the ball in his own net, but Jaoquin Correra added some respectability to the scoreline with a goal for the Italian club.
