A 3-0 aggregate win was enough to bundle Simeone Atletico Madrid side back to Spain with goals from Olivier Giroud (first leg), Hakim Ziyech and Emerson.
Tuchel in no doubt has proven to Chelsea critics he has what it takes to beat even the best if technical managers as his side is still yet to taste a loss or conceed a goal since Rudiger own goal and Minamino goal since he became Chelsea manager.
Everybody Expected Atletico to put Chelsea in immense pressure throughout the game and Chelsea to be the more Defensive side, but the game clearly showed Tuchel had other plans as he contained Atletico Madrid perfectly to the point they couldn’t get even a goal despite the numbers of attacking players Simeone put on the pitch.
His defensive strategy of holding Atl Madrid in the Midfield instead of close to the goal line helped chelsea as Atl Madrid found it extremely difficult breaking past Chelsea half way line.
Many insisted on Tuchel using Kepa for this clash even at that Mendy had close to nothing to do all game as his defense was just there for him reliving him off unnecessary stress.
A combination of Havertz, Werner and Ziyech upfront was all chelsea needed to produce a classic first goal in yesterday game.
