Giroud helped us secure a win in the first leg against Atletico Madrid. Could he be on the scoresheet again at the Bridge?
Chelsea have never been eliminated in a two-legged European knockout tie after winning the first leg Atlético have lost all 7 UEFA competition ties in which they were beaten in the home first leg.
Thomas Tuchel's two top scorers are banned today for Atletico Madrid's visit to Stamford Bridge. It's time someone else to step up.
Olivier Giroud in the Champions League this season:
• 6 goals, 2nd most in the competition
• A goal scored every 38 minutes
• More goals than appearances
'The fact that Tuchel has just told us that Thiago Silva is out injured for yet another game, I did not even have a shade of panic knowing the form and confidence we are seeing from our very own 'Danish Maldini' right now!'
Leading the line for Chelsea against Atlético?
