Yesterday we saw a magnificent performance from Giroud. Olivier was on top of the world while playing against Sevilla. Spain is very good for him as he scored four goals in just one match.
Chelsea’s situation in the group
Chelsea is playing in the group with Sevilla. Both teams are very powerful and solid in the attacking line. Krasnodar and Rennes were main opponents in the group. In the first match of the group, Chelsea hosted Sevilla. It happened in September, but teams could not score a goal. Since that match at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea improved a lot. We should note the good play of the attacking line. Frankie Lampard is trying everything to improve consistency and win big matches. It was not a regular match for Chelsea. Yesterday, Chelsea proved that they can qualify for next round and play against giant clubs for the Champions League trophy.
The night that Giroud won’t forget
Frankie Lampard has not changed the attacking line after the Premier League win. Chelsea was playing with Giroud as a main striker. Hudson-Odoi and Pulisic were playing on the wings. Kai Haverz was playing from deep as the main attacking midfielder. German midfielder’s main target was to keep up with Olivier Giroud’s movement in the penalty area. Kovacic and Jorginho were playing as the main midfielders.
Olivier Giroud started a perfect performance in the first half. After a pass from Kai Havertz, Olivier scored the first goal of the night. French stiker gaver a lead to Chelsea. Everyone thought that Sevilla would go for the equalizer but nothing happened. Chelsea’s players dominated the pitch fully. Giroud scored three more goals until the 84th minute. In the 83rd minute Giroud scored a penalty and then Frank replaced him with Werner.
