Oliver Giroud’s lone goal proved to be the difference for Chelsea during their clash with Belarus outfit, Bate Borisov, in their fourth group stage match at the EUROPA league competition.
The French International who was scoring his first goal of the season and also, his first under the tutelage of Maurizio Sarri rose high to meet Emerson’s cross and put it pass the helpless goalkeeper.
As a result of the impressive feat, the big coach revealed the following while addressing a post match conference.
Maurizio Sarri says it was the result that pleased him because we did not play very well in the first half when we moved the ball too slowly. It was better early in the second half but we did not manage the last 15 minutes well. #BATEvCFC
