by: Evolve


Despite Timo Werner’s brace for Thomas Tuchel’s side, the UEFA Champions League match between Zenit St. Petersburg and Chelsea in Group H finished 2-2.Chelsea

Zenit didn’t play as well in the second half as they had in the first, but they stuck in there when Lukaku and Werner scored to turn the game around for the Blues.

Chelsea appeared to be holding on for all three points until substitute Ozdoev came on in stoppage time to score a stunning volley to tie the game at 3-3.

Both teams shared the spoils in a thrilling match for the spectators, but not so much for Chelsea, who missed out on a chance to win the group.

Despite the fact that Ozdoev equalized, Claudinho’s first equalizing goal set the tone for Zenit’s outstanding performance.

Aside from that header, he had another shot on goal, a game-high five vital passes, three nice crosses, and the most aggressive passes of the game.

A stunning performance it was for the Brazilian attacker, and the teams in the Europa League will be wary of facing him.

Chelsea’s place at the top of Group H has been taken away by Juventus, who will complete the competition in first place and have a better draw than the Blues, who will face the winner of a different group in the last 16.

Zenit has advanced to the Europa League knockout stages and, based on this performance, might well win the competition.
