Batshuayi’s Late Goal Gives Chelsea Stunning Victory Against Atletico

Substitute Michy Batshuayi scored a late goal in 94th-minute to give Chelsea a dramatic victory against Atletico Madrid, maintaining their 100% start in Champions League Group C.

The host took the lead in the 40th minute through Antoine Griezmann penalty before Alvaro Morata equalised with his fourth goal in five days for the blues.

Chelsea dominated the play despite being visitors and they were well rewarded for it.

Batshuayi’s late goal came after missed opportunities for Cesc Fabregas and Morata and Chelsea became the first English team to win away to Atletico and subject them to defeat in their first European game at their new stadium.

The defeat also ended an 11-game unbeaten run at home in Europe for Atletico, who have reached two Champions League finals in the past four seasons.
