Watch: Olivier Giroud gives Chelsea the lead at Sevilla in the Champions League

Chelsea travelled to Sevilla on Wednesday evening for a penultimate day showdown between the two top dogs in Champions League Group E.

Both sides have already qualified for the last 16 of the competition and were battling it out for top spot and a more favourable draw while keeping an eye on their domestic commitments.

Both Sevilla and Chelsea have enjoyed good if not great starts to their league seasons and were glad to have the opportunity to rest a few bodies in what’s been a hectic year of football.

That’s not to say there was a lack of quality on show. The game began quickly, with Chelsea holding the upper hand and finding a breakthrough inside the first ten minutes.

Kai Havertz picked the ball up near the centre-circle, turned smartly, and broke forward at pace before feeding Olivier Giroud.

Chelsea’s French marksman took the pass well before shifting on to his left foot and finishing coolly.
