When it comes to the UEFA Champions League, group H has been set this evening. Chelsea, Juventus, Malmo, and Zenit St. Petersburg are some of the teams that play in this league, too. There were already two teams that were going to be in the Round of 16 before tonight's games. Chelsea and Juventus.
Before tonight's games, the only thing that wasn't clear was which team would win their group. Chelsea and Juventus were both at 12 points, which is the same number. We're going to focus on Chelsea's failure to beat Zenit St. Petersburg in our discussion of the subject at hand.
After Group H was decided, Juventus won the group. They beat Malmo (1-0) while Chelsea drew with Zenit (2-2). (3-3). We're going to talk about two things that make Chelsea fans nervous, even though they made it to the Round of 16.
1. They've given up more goals recently:
Chelsea has been hurt by giving up so much recently. Here, things are not going well for Chelsea. At the start of this season, Chelsea was known for keeping clean sheets and having little or no goals. Now, it's the other way around.
They have given up 6 goals in their last two games. In their EPL game against West Ham, three came in. This evening, Zenit St. Petersburg was able to score three times against Chelsea, so they won.
2. Giving away late goals
Chelsea's first problem should be how often they give up. One would be giving up late in the match. We can all remember that West Ham beat Chelsea with a late goal.
I had a lot of the same problems this night. During extra time, Chelsea had the lead. Ozdoev scored a goal in the 94th minute to make the game 3-3. They lost the lead in extra time after that.
