A spectacular acrobatic strike from Olivier Giroud gave Chelsea a 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last-16 first-leg clash in Bucharest on Tuesday evening.
The French striker broke the deadlock in the 68th minute with a superb overhead kick, which was initially flagged for offside but the goal was eventually given after a lengthy VAR review as the ball had come off Atletico’s Mario Hermoso before Giroud found the net.
Chelsea will now take a one-goal advantage into the second leg at Stamford Bridge on 17 March.
