Hakim Ziyech has just drawn level with Marouane Chamakh as the leading Moroccan goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history UEFA Champions League (8). He had failed to find in his last nine outings, i.e. since the UEFA Super Cup against Villarreal.
Chelsea win 1-0. Could have easily been a repeat of the 4-0 victory at Stamford Bridge. If Juventus beat Zenit later, they will only need one point from the last two matches to guarantee a place in the last 16.
No Moroccan player has scored more Champions League goals than Hakim Ziyech.
He has equalled Marouane Chamakh’s tally of eight!
Callum Hudson-Odoi is the first player aged under 21 to assist a goal in consecutive Champions League appearances for Chelsea Bright.
Christian Pulisic ends his first appearance in two months with a breakaway chance, rounds the goalkeeper, but puts it wide. Showed some understandable rust there, though it was nice to see the wheels.
He looked offside, but would have still been good to see him finish that one.
