Chelsea beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 on Wednesday to reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2014.
Hakim Ziyech and Emerson Palmieri were set to give coach Thomas Tuchel’s rejuvenated squad a 3-0 aggregate victory.
Substitute Emerson secured the win by scoring in the fourth minute of added time for Chelsea’s second goal.
Atletico Madrid were left to referee Daniele Orsato not to give a penalty when the scores were 0-0.
It was then that Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta hit a back pass and put his arm around Yannick Carrasco who fell into the penalty area.
Ziyech squeezed the ball under Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak in the 34th minute of the final second leg.
This was after being connected with a cross from Timo Werner who had run to the left after being fed by fellow German Kai Havertz.
The visitors ended the game with 10 men after Stefan Savic received a red card in the 82nd minute for nudging Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger in the chest during a corner kick.
