Chelsea 2, Lille 0: Blues take step to Champions League quarters


For Chelsea, the result is perfectly adequate. A 2-0 first-leg win over Lille means that it is well-positioned to reach the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League but, as so often recently, Tuesday’s was not a performance of any great flair or fluidity. Then again, a last-16 tie against arguably the weakest side remaining in the competition is not a night on which history is likely to be made. Given Chelsea’s injuries, and just generally speaking at this stage, what matters is professionalism and competence and making sure you get through.
