Chelsea FC won the second game of the Champions League season in Krasnodar 4-0. The Blues were superior, but found it difficult against well-positioned Russians. A goalkeeper mistake and Werner's premier goal set the course for victory.

 

Jorginho casual - and on the inside post


A first-half developed in which Chelsea had a lot of possession (78 percent after 45 minutes) and Krasnodar was very compact defensively. But the home side kept sticking pins forward, like in minute five when Utkin checked the guest keeper Mendy. On the other side, Ziyech reported the guests offensively for the first time from an acute angle (9th). In the 13th minute, Werner appeared dangerous for the first time, the German national player took a penalty against Kaio. Jorginho took care of the matter, jumped once in the air as usual - and put the ball on the left inner post. The ball bounced back into the game from the back of goalkeeper Safonov (14th). The hosts almost twice punished the missed shot, but Vilhena's deflected shot just missed

Bad mistake by Safonov

The Russians did a very good job defensively and hardly allowed anything against the favorites. But then a bad mistake by Safonov put the home side behind: Havertz found Hudson-Odoi in the penalty area, whose central shot the keeper let slip - 1-0 for the Blues (37th). The short break was not undeserved, but the Blues hadn't created many chances.

Gazinsky unlucky

After the break, it was initially the Blues that became dangerous, Kovacic aimed a little too imprecisely (49th). But Krasnodar became more and more courageous - and had bad luck in the 55th minute when Gazinsky only hit the crossbar. But the hosts believed in themselves and did not give up, Berg checked Mendy from an acute angle (67th). There wasn't much to be seen from the Londoners offensively, Ziyech's finish from a good position was harmless (67th).
Double strike decides the game

The English struggled offensively but received another penalty after a handball from Martynovich in the penalty area. This time Werner carried out - and the attacker scored his first Champions League goal for Chelsea (76th). Three minutes later, Ziyech added the third goal (79th) after the preparatory work by Werner. Substitute Pulisic, who scored through Safonov's legs to make it 4-0 (90th), put the finishing touches. Chelsea is now in good shape with four points after two games.
