By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Chelsea, yesterday, defeated Spanish-side 2-0 at Stamford Bridge to qualify on a 3-0 aggregate to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Closing in on the right into the penalty box in the 34th minute, Hakim Ziyech scored off a pass from Timo Werner who had run up on the left side.

Chelsea had won the first leg 1-0 played in Budapest, Hungary, due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Defender Stefan Savić was red-carded in the 81st minute for elbowing Antonio Rüdiger leaving Atlético handicapped with ten men.

Joao Feliz had a good break-in injury time but Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy denied him.

A little later in the 94th Emerson, who had just entered the game, scored Chelsea’s second goal off an assist by Christian Pulisic.

This was Chelsea’s first run into the UEFA Champions League in seven seasons.

Chelsea joins two other English clubs, Manchester United and Liverpool, in the quarterfinals.

For their part, Atlético Madrid became the third Spanish club to be eliminated after Barcelona and Sevilla were also sent home. Real Madrid is the only Spanish representative in the last-8.
