France international N’Gola Kante clutches the Champions League trophy as he leads Chelsea out on to the pitch at Windsor Park. In all honesty, the trophy is nearly as big as the Blues’ brilliant midfielder, but it’s one he certainly deserves to hold.
Out too are Villarreal, tonight led by Raul Albiol. This is a huge night for the Yellow Submarine, who want to prove they belong on Europe’s biggest stage.
6* – Marcos Alonso forces a corner with an impressive cross into the six-yard box.
The resultant corner leads to Werner forcing a wonderful save from Asenjo with a point blank volley.
50* – Edouard Mendy almost sends his team down the creek without a paddle. He gives the ball away to Dia with a poor kick and leaves his two centre-backs scrambling.
60* – Alberto Moreno arrives late for a tackle on Pulisic and sticks out a leg to bring the Chelsea winger down.
Alonso dinks the set piece into the box where Kurt Zouma climbs over Albiol to win the header. He puts his effort wide of the near post but is punished for a foul on the Villarreal captain.
65* – Time for some substitutes. Thomas Tuchel makes a triple change bringing on Andreas Christensen, Jorginho and Mason Mount. Kante, Werner and Zouma are the men replaced
