Finally at Baku against Azerbaijani Champions, Qarabag, Chelsea booked their place in the knock-out stages of the Champions League with an emphatic 4-0 win. The victory took Chelsea to top spot the group standing above Roma who relinquished their position after their 2-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid.
Chelsea needed to wrap up qualification after our horror show in Rome denied us the chance to do so. But the yesterday’s victory has a sweet taste to it as we are now relieved of the pressure of doing so in the last round match against Atletico Madrid which could prove tricky.
Now our quest will be to beat the Spanish side to seal top spot in order to avoid the potentiality of landing a difficult draw in the knockout phase. With this in mind, Antonio Conte must fire up the team to keep their focus on top spot to avoid slipping away from our grasp.
Let’s battle on till the end. Cheers!
