Ref_src = twsrc% 5Etfw "> February 23, 2021 Giroud, lightning in the night Already particularly in sight on the occasion of the group phase with a registered quadruplet against Sevilla, the former Montpellier has therefore stood out again. Obviously, the major European evenings and Spanish clubs inspire him and not only a little. Established by Thomas Tuchel for this battle against the Matelassiers, the world champion has had a complicated evening as a whole due to the few spaces at his disposal. But it only took him one chance to hit the mark. On a ball inadvertently handed over by an opposing defender, he did not asked questions and managed the perfect execution. It took a feat of this kind for this game to escape the good old 0-0, so much the two teams neutralized in both compartments. Caution prevailed at the expense risk taking, which resulted in a e battle padlocked with very few highlights. Giroud’s masterpiece was even the only real breakthrough in the game. Atlético refused the game Fortunately there were no spectators at this national stadium in Bucharest. Otherwise, they would have been bored in front of the proposed spectacle. True to its old principles, and unlike the game it has been able to offer in La Liga since the start of the season, Atlético refused the game. In these circumstances, it was almost a miracle that the Cochoneros offered themselves two scoring chances. Thomas Lemar (15th) and Joao Felix (58th) failed to convert them. Chelsea, for their part, only alerted Jan Oblak once, it was in the 39th minute on a close-range strike from Timo Werner. The Londoners were running out of solutions and also ideas once passed the halfway line. Nothing seemed to augur well for a favorable outcome for them and that is why they can highly thank their Frenchie striker. Giroud's goal will weigh even more heavily if the team in Tuchel manages to improve this result on their return. The Blues have never looked so close to regaining the premier league quarterfinals, which they haven't played since fiscal 2013/2014. Atlético, for their part, are in dire straits. But, it is important not to bury the Rojiblancos too quickly. Last season they made their way into the European Top 8 by winning their 8th comeback against an English club and away. Bis repetita this year?
