Olivier Giroud scored a Champions League goal for the ages as Chelsea beat Atletico Madrid 1-0 in Bucharest to seal a vital away-leg advantage.

In a tight round of 16 first-leg tie – played in Hungary rather than Madrid due to travel restrictions between Spain and England – Giroud’s stunning second-half bicycle kick decided the contest for Thomas Tuchel’s Blues.

The result means Chelsea take an away-goal advantage back to Stamford Bridge, leaving Diego Simeone’s Atletico with a huge task for the return leg.

It was meant to be Thomas Tuchel’s big European test as Chelsea boss but Diego Simeone’s side offered little or nothing going forward.
