Olivier Giroud was in top form for Chelsea as the Blues defeated Sevilla 4-0 in the Champions League clash on Wednesday night.

Besides being a breathtaking performance, Giroud also smashed multiple records in one night.

Check out some interesting records from the game

Giroud is now the oldest to score a hat-trick in the Champions League at the age of 34 and 63 days, a record that was previously held by Cristiano Ronaldo at the age of 34 years & 35 days old.

Giroud has also become the second French player to score two Champions League hat-tricks, with only Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema the other player to do so.

Giroud met Frank Lampard’s record, as he was the last player to score four goals in a single game for Chelsea back in March 2010 against Aston Villa.

Interestingly, since signing for Chelsea, only Bayern Munich ace Robert Lewandowski (26) and Barcelona star Lionel Messi (18) have found the back of the net more times in Europe than Giroud in the last three seasons than Giroud who’s tied with Erling Haaland at 16 goals.

In that time frame, Callum Hudson-Odoi is the nearest to Giroud on six goals, with Pedro and Willian having scored five goals each for Chelsea, within the same period.
