Premier league defending champions Chelsea have become the first premier league team to lose in the champions league this season after Roma humbled them in Italy.
The loss is not just historical but also very humiliating as this is the very first time Roma will defeat Chelsea with such margin in Italy.
Roma were determined and in full control of the game, scoring three goals from the six shots on target which they played to show that they were ready for their visitors, while their visitors who had 14 shots failed to convert any to goal.
Roma should have led by 4-0 when Chelsea’s defenders all ran to Dzeko, who managed to square to a totally unmarked Perotti, but he fired over when he should have clinically buried the ball in the net.
Chelsea should have progressed to the knock out stage if they had won the game, but will have to wait till their next match to do so.
The Blues were hugely fortunate that Atletico Madrid failed to beat Qarabag in Spain after a 1-1 draw, meaning that Chelsea are still likely to qualify for the last 16 from Group C.
