Chelsea made history on Tuesday in the Champions League during their 1-0 victory over Malmo FF. 

Hakim Ziyech scored the only goal against plucky Malmo with his strike marking the Blues’ 500th goal in European competitions. Malmo goalkeeper Johan Dahlin was a busy man in the first half as he made seven saves to force the match to end in a goalless draw after 45 minutes.

In the second half, Ziyech gave the Blues the lead from close-range and his strike will go down in the annuals of great goals in Europe as his side closed 500th goal in European competitions.

Ziyech record

Ziyech also became the joint-highest scoring Moroccan player in the Champions League history, alongside former Arsenal forward Marouane Chamakh.

Mendy the wall

Edouard Mendy yet again kept another clean sheet and without a doubt, he is one of the best goalkeepers in Europe. The Senegalese wasn’t overly tested but it wasn’t surprising as he kept his fifth clean sheet having played 479 minutes without conceding a goal in all competitions.
