Giroud's staggering strike was an ideal final detail on a great execution 

Chelsea will take a 1-0 lead into the Champions League most recent 16 second leg after Oliver Giroud found a far beyond Atletico Madrid's pressed protection. 

As has been the situation in ongoing games under Thomas Tuchel, the Blues had a lot of first-half belonging - yet cautious blunders nearly demonstrated exorbitant more than once, with Edouard Mendy getting an early getaway after a helpless touch and Luis Suarez nearly discovering Thomas Lemar later on. 

Notwithstanding those segregated minutes, Atletico had not many genuine endeavors, while Chelsea's most obvious opportunity came after a brilliant divert and strike from Timo Werner - yet Jan Oblak wasn't to be beaten at his close to post. 

Chelsea's more gutsy standpoint got the prize it merited with 20 minutes to play, in any case, as Olivier Giroud responded to send an overhead kick into the base corner - which he and his group were permitted to celebrate after a VAR survey, toppling the on-pitch authorities' unique call for offside. 

Here are five things we gained from the game in Romania, Atletico's home leg. 

Mount out 

An early reserving in the principal leg could yet demonstrate exorbitant in the second, as Mason Mount saw yellow promptly after commencement. 

He has immediately become a critical starter for Tuchel and was one of Chelsea's players endeavoring to locate the little holes which existed against the minimal Atletico back line, so his nonappearance will be felt. 

Chelsea have alternatives obviously, with Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic the pair generally cheerful of contribution, yet Mount is a major strategic pinion just as a specialized one, with his work-rate consistently a significant viewpoint that the Blues depend on in enormous, tight matches. 

Jorginho following him into a yellow card suspension will not assistance, all things considered. 

Games have been close, or baffling, because of the powerlessness to transform that utilization of the ball into objectives and it was again the equivalent here - however this time by the plan of Atletico, instead of Chelsea themselves forcing their style on the match. 

Directly from the beginning it was evident that Atleti would adopt a normal Diego Simeone strategy: sit in with an all around penetrated shape, pack out the punishment box to shut off passing paths, and hang tight for the opportunity to flood forward. 

Simeone addresses the cost 

While the methodology was nothing unexpected, it certainly didn't deliver profits on this event for Atletico. 

Los Rojiblancos neglected to have a shot on track all match and the front three submitted a bigger number of fouls than they had joined shots - a quite obvious sign of their arrangement. 

Late on, after the objective, it demonstrated unimaginable for them to change gears and begin to inconvenience Chelsea in assault, with the disappointment changing from away side to home with the very same methodology on show. 

There can't be any grumblings, just an acknowledgment that the arrangement exploded backward woefully and the subsequent leg will require an altogether different ploy. 

Giroud the legend 

The Blues pivoted right off the bat in the season at focus forward: Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud. Under Tuchel, as opposed to Frank Lampard, the German forward seems to be an only left-sided uphold choice, other than late on in matches. 

Yet, the No. 9 job is available for anyone. Abraham has begun a few, been subbed off at half-time, seen Mason Mount play that part as a removed choice between split forwards...and now seen Giroud stake an undeniable case to be best option by and by. 

The French forward didn't have a ton of possibilities, yet involved safeguards well, continued making the hurries to allure crosses toward him and, essentially, was clinical whenever his half-chance went along. 

That is something Abraham hasn't yet had the option to duplicate frequently enough and this strike, an away objective in Europe, could demonstrate considerably more crucial. 

Battling on two fronts 

It's too soon to consider what Chelsea can accomplish this season under Tuchel, yet there can be no questions that they have twin targets which can be viewed as both attainable and a stage forward from last season. 

Lampard brought Chelsea into the best four, yet not past this stage - they were outmatched by Bayern Munich, justifiably. 

We'll can't be sure whether Lampard would have had the option to devise a strategic arrangement to beat Atletico, however the proof of this season and his end would positively be against the hypothesis - yet Tuchel is most of the way there. 

He will not need a best four completion and a run into the last eight to be the amount of his desire, however it's an incredible beginning considering he has expected to waste no time partially through a mission of relative under-accomplishment.
