When the UEFA champions league round of 16 fixtures came out, the Athletico Madrid versus Chelsea fixture was a mouth-watering one and it must be said that the Spanish team was the favorite to win this fixture considering the form of both teams as at then.
Things turn around for the blues when the club sacked their then manager and club legend, Frank Lampard, and then appoint Thomas Tuchel as the new boss.
Tuchel made an immediate impact on the team that saw Chelsea having some good and unbeatable run of games, which include the triumph over Liverpool at Anfield. The first leg of the champions league fixture was played on February 23 at a neutral ground due to covid-19 regulations, against all expectations, Chelsea dominated the game and won the first leg with a slim victory of 1-0, so it means the tie was still own which makes the second leg a must-watch.
On Wednesday, March 17, there were millions of viewers all around the world who turned all their attention to the match. In the first five minutes of the game, it was Athletico who was mounting the pressure but Chelsea did enough to calm the storm. Chelsea broke the deadlock in the 34th minutes of the game through Hakim Ziyech from a counter-attack and later got the second from another counter with the first touch of substitute, Emerson in the 94th minutes.
It’s been thirteen games now for Tuchel and the Germans still remain unbeaten, winning 9 and drew 4. Chelsea is now in the quarter-finals of the UEFA champions league for the first time in seven years.* BEST DEALS & OFFERS*
