Chelsea edged Atletico Madrid by 2-0 to reach the quarterfinal of the Champions League for the first time in seven years.
The Blues started off with a slim first-leg win of 1-0, a draw or outright win in the second leg was needed. Thomas Tuchel’s men were impressive and settled for nothing less than a win.
Ziyech opened scoring for Chelsea in 34′ minutes, to give some confidence to Chelsea. Emerson’s late goal in injury time sealed the victory as Chelsea made Atletico’s second visit to England in a row a nightmare.
The victory means Chelsea remain unbeaten in 13 matches under Thomas Tuchel, as they look forward to making a more impressive performance in the tournament.
Sadly, Atletico have lost three consecutive knockout stages games in the Champions League/European Cup for the very first time, also losing both legs of a two-legged knockout tie in the competition for the first time.
Tuche’s men made history as they also became the first English club to eliminate Atletico Madrid from the knockout stage of a major European competition since Gary Megson’s Bolton Wanderers in the 2007-08 Uefa Cup last 32.
