Chelsea VS Sevilla: Giroud nets four as Blues clinch Champions League group



Olivier Giroud had his best performance in a Chelsea shirt on Wednesday, scoring four goals as the Blues beat Sevilla 4-0 on the road to win Group E of the Champions League. Frank Lampard’s side has a three-point lead over Sevilla entering next week’s Matchday 6, but Wednesday’s result now means the Spanish side can no longer win the group as Chelsea won the head-to-head tiebreaker..

The Blues dominated from start to finish by creating the most dangerous of chances between the two sides, with three of the Frenchman’s goals coming in the second half. Giroud is now one goal shy of being top scorer in the competition, with Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund on six goals.

Chelsea winning the group means they’ll be paired with a runner-up in the round of 16, while Sevilla will face a group winner.
