Chelsea defeated Qarabag 4-0 in this evening’s Champions League clash, and the goal came after Qarabag had a man sent off.

Qarabag captain Rashad Sadygov was shown a red card for bringing down Willian and preventing a clear goalscoring opportunity without making a legitimate attempt to play the ball.

However, Qarabag manager Gurban Gurbanov was unhappy with the decision.

He said after the game: “Maybe if we weren’t a small team we wouldn’t have had the red card. Chelsea didn’t need the red card, they are a strong team.”

He also added: “The red card didn’t let us show our best football, it was a shame for the fans. I want to praise my team for the way they fought.” 

However, Antonio Conte admitted he didn’t have a good view of the incident.
The Chelsea boss said: “For me it is very difficult to speak about the situation when you are on the bench. The referee has to do his job, not favour one team. He tried to do his job. I think this about the situation.”
