Atletico 1-2 Chelsea: Batshuayi scores with last kick of the game after Morata had levelled

By Isoccer Staff

 

Michy Batshuayi stunned Atletico Madrid with a last-gasp winner to earn Chelsea a second Champions League win of the season.

The Belgian ghosted into the box and side-footed home to leave Diego Simeone heartbroken.

Chelsea started well with Morata firing wide twice and the lively Eden Hazard crashing a superb effort off the post from long-range.

But it was Atletico who took the lead when David Luiz pulled Lucas Hernandez’s shirt at a corner, with Antoine Griezmann firing home from the penalty spot in the 40th minute.

Saul Niguez should have doubled their lead on the stroke of half-time but fired wide with the goal gaping.

Morata headed home the equaliser from Hazard’s superb cross in the 60th minute as Chelsea started the second period as strongly, but it looked to be heading for a draw until Batshuayi struck.
