Olivier Giroud’s Brace Gives Chelsea Comfortable 4-0 Victory Over PAOK Salonika
The Frenchman curled home from Pedro’s pass before burying a volley from Cesc Fabregas’ lofted through ball to give the hosts a two goals lead at the break.
The Greek visitors had been down to 10 men since the seventh minute with Yevhen Khacheridi dismissed for diving in and denying Giroud a clear goal-scoring opportunity.
A depleted PAOK tired further in the second half and 18-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi found the net before substitute Alvaro Moraga headed in the youngster’s cross with his first touch off the bench.
