A very poor match by the Blues Chelsea FC, especially in the first half, where Chelsea failed to have any shot on target throughout the first half, and in the second half their stats were close to the attacking stats and attempts by Slavia Praha.
Chelsea’s only goal came by the Spanish defender Marcos Alonso, who scored with a header in the last minutes of the match after getting an assist from the Brazilian international, Willian.
A poor and risky result for Chelsea, where the second leg at the Stamford Bridge could be even harder than today’s match.
