Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea - LIVE!

Olivier Giroud produced another Champions League special to hand Chelsea the advantage in their last-16 tie with Atletico Madrid after a 1-0 first-leg win in Bucharest last night.

The Blues forward grabbed his sixth goal in the competition this season with an overhead kick in the 68th minute but it was only awarded after a lengthy VAR review.

It was thoroughly deserved for Thomas Tuchel’s side, who dominated for large parts and extended their unbeaten run under the German to eight games since his arrival on January 26.

A negative was bookings for Mason Mount and Jorginho, which rules them out of the second leg and will force a midfield reshuffle from Tuchel.

However, Atletico boss Diego Simeone knows his team will need to score at least twice next month to go through in normal time, and Chelsea look odds-on to reach the quarter-finals.
