Kai Havertz shoots Chelsea to the Champions League title

by archysport

MThey have become better than others, but Manchester City and Pep Guardiola are still chasing the Champions League title in vain. The grand finale of the tactical gurus on the coaches’ benches ended on Saturday evening with the victory for Thomas Tuchel, who with the 1-0 win became the big lot for Chelsea FC.

He only took over the troubled club at the end of January, and not even the greatest optimists would have dreamed of a triumph in the Champions League. Four months later, after Kai Havertz’s goal (43rd minute), his players were allowed to raise their pot in front of 16,500 English fans in Porto. “I thank my family. I don’t know what to say, ”Havertz said before the award ceremony at DAZN, before the interview was blown up by Chelsea captain César Azpilicueta, who praised and hugged the German.

Guardiola looked quite confused at the break, almost at a loss. Something had gone really wrong. With a very offensive starting XI, the Spanish starting coach had tried to disrupt Chelsea’s play structure from the outset – in vain. It seemed to come true what Tuchel had predicted: “I’m a little smarter than last year.” The German coach lost the final with Paris St. Germain against Bayern.

This time his team led fully deservedly after 45 minutes, because Tuchel had chosen the right tactic to use Guardiola’s passion for attack. With high positioned full-backs, he had avoided losing the ball in the middle, and Chelsea had often safely overcome the City pressing line with chip balls. Guardiola’s team was repeatedly exposed to straightforward counterattacks.
