Michy Batshuayi scored a 94th-minute winner as Chelsea snatched a dramatic victory against Atletico Madrid to maintain their 100% start in Champions League Group C.
Substitute Batshuayi tapped home from close range with the last kick of the game from Marcos Alonso’s cross.
The Blues fell behind to a 40th-minute Antoine Griezmann penalty despite having the better of the first half when David Luiz needlessly pulled the shirt of Lucas Hernandez at a corner.
But Chelsea, who hit the post through Eden Hazard in the opening stages, again impressed after the interval and were rewarded when Alvaro Morata equalised with his fourth goal in five days.
The Spaniard deftly flicked Hazard’s accurate left-wing cross into the far corner for his first Champions League goal for Chelsea.
BBC Sports reports that Batshuayi’s winner came after missed opportunities for Cesc Fabregas and Morata as Chelsea became the first English team to win away to Atletico and condemn them to defeat in their first European game at their new stadium.
It means Chelsea stay top of Group C on six points, two clear of Roma and five ahead of third-placed Atletico.
Super sub Batshuayi seals famous win
With Atletico-bound Diego Costa watching from the stands ahead of his impending move from Chelsea, the club’s two remaining strikers – Batshuayi and Morata – showed that the side still have plenty of fire power to worry Europe’s elite.
Batshuayi’s goal was a brilliantly worked team goal, starting with a free-kick that Chelsea chose not to hit long despite it being late in the game.
The move included nine Chelsea passes as the ball was worked across the pitch before Batshuayi converted for another decisive goal from the bench – with the Belgian having done the same to seal the Premier League title in May against West Brom.
It was the first goal Atletico have conceded at the Wanda Metropolitano since moving from the Vincente Calderon this season and is just the second time Atletico have lost under Diego Simeone in 24 Champions League home games.
