Chelsea reaffirmed that it is still one of the best in Europe and beat Lille 2-1 in France.

The reigning Champions League champion wants to defend its title and advanced to the Quarterfinals against the Ligue 1 champion.

Lille started better than their opponents and tried from the start to make their home advantage count. The French pressured Chelsea‘s attack and Burak Yilmaz shot at goal, but Thiago Silva got in the way and cleared with his head a shot that could have been a goal.

Yilmaz himself tried a free-kick that went over the goal and after 38 minutes of play, he got his revenge: Jorginho touched the ball with his hand inside the area, the referee awarded a penalty and the Turkish striker made it 1-0.

Lille was in the lead for the first time in the key, they were just one goal away from equalizing the aggregate score and it was all roses, but the joy was short-lived.

Chelsea reacted quickly and at the end of the first half, they had their first chance to find the equalizer through Christian Pulisic.

With a great collective play and patience in Tuchel’s team, Jorginho redeemed himself and had a second of lucidity to leave the American striker face to face with the goalkeeper.

The second half got off to an intense start and Lille had the chance to get back into the lead with headers from Yilmaz and Xeka, the latter crashing against Édouard Mendy’s post.

With the French team going forward and with plenty of space, Chelsea solved the doubts in the key with a good play by Mason Mount overflowing and crossing to the stellar appearance of the captain, César Azpilicueta.

The Spaniard, who has not yet renewed his contract with Chelsea, has been rumored to reinforce Barcelona and Atlético Madrid and gave his team a 2-1 victory in France.

The Champions League champions are looking to defend the title they won last season and even moved in a match that looked difficult but resolved with the few arrivals they had.
