Chelsea on Wednesday got a 3-0 aggregate win over Atletico Madrid to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time in seven years.
Chelsea took a slim first-leg lead as an advantage to the return leg match.
Emerson Palmieri scored a late goal to complete the job for the Blues and compliment the good work from Kai Havertz and Timo Werner after Hakim Ziyech had earlier put the hosts firmly in control with a low effort.
The visiting keeper was down smartly to keep out Werner’s low shot early in the second half and had further work to do to deny Ziyech a second.
A setback occurred when Stefan Savić’s late red card made life all the more difficult for the Spanish side and this occurred when Atletico coach Diego Simeone made rung the changes in the search for a route back into the tie.
Thomas Tuchel’s men have joined Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester City in the draw for the quarter and semi-finals on Friday at 11:00 GMT.
