Foot : Chelsea s’impose, Benfica s’amuse – Publi

Dropped in the Premier League, Chelsea is counting on the Champions League to save his season. Yet the English had lost on the smallest score (0-1) in the first leg against Dortmund. To qualify, the Blues had to win by at least two goals. From the start of the meeting, the men of Graham Potter put a lot of pressure on their evening opponent.

A domination rewarded shortly before the break thanks to Raheem Sterling, arrived this summer. The two teams are then tied on the double confrontation. Returning from the locker room, Chelsea very quickly obtained a penalty obtained following a handball from a German defender on a cross from Chilwell. Havertz then takes charge of hitting him but the ball ends up on the post. Except that at the time of the shot, several players entered the penalty area of Meyer, the Borussia goalkeeper. The German again takes responsibility and allows his team to double the lead (2-0). At the end of the match the Dortmund players will push but nothing will work, Chelsea therefore qualifies for the quarter-finals of the competition thanks to this success.

For his part, the Benfica had a much quieter evening. Already winner in the first leg 0-2 against Used, the Portuguese strolled again this evening. Indeed, the locals will win 5 goals to 1 thanks to goals from Rafael Silva, Ramos (double)Joao Mario on penalty and David Neres. On the Belgian side, the young Dutchman Meijer is the only scorer for his team in the double confrontation.

Like Chelsea, Benfica continues its journey and qualifies for the quarter-finals.
