Chelsea won Tuesday against Atlético Madrid 1-0 in the knockout stages of the Champions League Although disputed on neutral ground due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this success counts as an away victory for the Blues In the other game of the evening, Bayern Munich took a bite out of SS Lazio

Atlético locked the match but ended up breaking down Forced to play their home match on neutral ground, Diego Simeone’s team lost 1-0 on Tuesday (February 23) to Chelsea, who took an option for qualification in the quarter-finals of the Champions League In the other game of the night, Bayern Munich pulverized Lazio Rome 4-1

In Bucharest, on the neutral ground where the match takes place due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Chelsea nevertheless missed the start of the match Mount makes a stupid mistake on Lemar which earns him a yellow card depriving him of the second leg Then, Azpilicueta puts his goalkeeper Édouard Mendy in difficulty, which fails to benefit Suárez (3rd)

The 3-4-3 with a block very adopted by Diego Simeone puts Chelsea in difficulty The Colchoneros press high and throw themselves quickly Suárez recovers a ball entering the box and throws Joao Felix on the left The Portuguese sends a cross to the far post, narrowly headed by Rudiger (8th)

On another recovered ball, Suárez manages to pass a low cross in front of Chelsea’s goal Lemar, at the far post, narrowly misses his recovery which ends in the small outside net (14th) Before the shepherd’s response to the shepherdess: a similar action is launched in the other half of the pitch, and this time it’s Werner who is very close to catching the ball at the far post for Chelsea (15th)

An opportunity that has the merit of putting the “Blues” back in their game Thomas Tuchel’s men take possession of the game and settle in Madrid’s half of the pitch A domination that is slow to materialize: the Londoners are struggling to destabilize Atlético’s defense line, locked by no less than six players during the defensive phases

The young Timo Werner is particularly in sight Offset to the left, the German makes the difference before continuing with a powerful strike at the near post Oblak wins with a reflex parade (38th)

Returning from the locker room, Chelsea continue to storm the fortress built by Diego Simeone After a number from Mount in midfield, he passes on to Werner left side He sends a low cross to the penalty spot where Felipe intervenes in extremis (52nd)

You have to wait until the 66th minute to see the opening scoring It is spectacular and signed by the French Olivier Giroud At the penalty spot, he scores a splendid acrobatic kickback At first refused by the referee on the grounds of offside, it was finally validated by the VAR because it was a Madrid player who returned the ball to the French striker

And, despite a triple change made by Simeone with the entry of Lodi, Torreira and Moussa Dembélé in place of Saul, Joao Felix and Correa, Atlético fails to turn the tide of the game or to put in difficulty Édouard Mendy who had little to do in this round of 16: Atlético even finished the game with 0 shots on target

Thomas Tuchel can savor After leading PSG to the Champions League final last summer, his team appeared very solid tonight against the leader of La Liga It remains to be confirmed on March 17 at Stamford Bridge while taking advantage of this victory in Bucharest, counting as an away victory Diego Simeone will have to find the keys to turn the situation around

Trophy-holding Bayern Munich virtually secured their own qualifying for the quarter-finals by outscoring Lazio at Rome 4-1 in the other game of the night

Bayern are now 18 games in a row without defeat in C1 (17 wins, 1 draw) The goals were scored by Robert Lewandowski (9th), the young (17) Jamal Musiala (24th), Leroy Sané (42nd) and Francesco Acerbi against his camp (47th) Argentina’s Joaquin Correa saved the honor for Lazio (49th), whose return to C1 after thirteen years of absence could end on March 17 in Munich
