Frank Lampard and his Chelsea They will be in the knockout stages of the Champions League. The London team needed to win this Tuesday against the Lille so as not to depend on what happened in the Ajax-Valencia, and he did (2-1). With goals from Tammy Abraham and Caesar Azpilicueta, both in the first half, got rid of the French team that nothing was played and only in the final stretch did he oppose some opposition with a goal from Remy. Chelsea is not among the favorites to the title, but it plays very well and of course it is one of the great ‘covered’ of this Champions League.
Watch the match summary
The game started as expected, with the “blue” box dominating the game through the ball. With Galtier dispensing with the appointment of José Fonte, Osimhen and Ikoné, all of them important pieces in this Lille, Chelsea was much superior since the initial whistle, with the feeling that local goals would arrive sooner rather than later.
The first happened in 19 ’. After what Pulisic, Emerson Palmieri and Kanté would have touched on three clear scoring occasions, it was Tammy Abraham who opened the scoring, pushing a pass from the death of Willian.
From there, Chelsea became even more comfortable, and in the 35 ’, in a corner kick launched by Emerson Palmieri, Azpilicueta finished off completely free of mark in the first suit so that his head sent to the‘ blue ’head to the round of 16.
Remy dressed the final stretch
In the second half, the match skewed at times showing that everything was decided, but Loïc Remy He insisted on putting some suspense on the final stretch. In 78 ’, in what was practically the first approximation of the Lille to the ‘blue’ area, the French attacker finished off a Bamba center from the left to make the 2-1 and put the fear in the body of Lampard.
But the thing was scared, and Chelsea will be in the round of 16 and is already waiting for a rival, which will be a series head other than Valencia and not an Englishman. PSG, Bayern Munich, Juventus and himself Barça They are among the candidates.
