Chelsea can breathe. On unfavorable waivers after their defeat in Germany (1-0), the Blues had to work to win this return match (2-0) and qualify for the quarterfinals (2-1 on aggregate). Chelsea tried a lot in the first act, sometimes clumsily, under the impetus of an untenable Kai Havertz on the front of the attack. Finally, it was Raheem Sterling who blew up Stamford Bridge for the first time after a messed up ball that the Englishman was very happy to catapult to the bottom (43rd). Returning from the locker room, Havertz did not tremble on penalty to take Meyer on the wrong foot and virtually qualify his team (53rd). Failing to have known how to be realized in this double confrontation, Chelsea showed character and logically qualified. The Blues to do better than last year, those who had been eliminated by Real Madrid in an epic match in the quarter-finals.
