Olivier Giroud had the final word on home soil as he marched on to the pitch as a late substitute and provided the winning header in the dying moments of this game. Alongside Sevilla’s 2-1 win over Krasnodar it means Chelsea and the Spanish side have qualified from Group E for the last 16 and will effectively contest top spot in Seville next week.
Chelsea arrived at Roazhon Park on a five-match winning streak which included their 3-0 win over a 10-man Rennes at Stamford Bridge and it was immediately reflected in the ease and fluidity with which they moved the ball, suffocating the home team’s defence.
