Breaking News ! Thomas Tuchel has explained why he started Olivier Giroud and Callum Hudson-Odoi this evening. Chelsea are in Champions League Round of 16 action against Atletico Madrid in Bucharest this evening, hoping to take an advantage in the second leg at Stamford Bridge. And ahead of the game, it was confirmed Giroud would get only his third start of the Tuchel era with Tammy Abraham being favoured in recent weeks. Tuchel explained the decision aherad of kick-off, telling BT Sport: "It's clear because Oli is the guy for the last 20 metres and we expected a higher game against Southampton with a very aggressive squad in Southampton, so we thought maybe we will find more spaces being the line, so we opted for smaller and faster strikers.

"He has the quality in one-touch finishing, in general around the box, with headers, and he is clearly experienced in big matches to be decisive." Tuchel also started Hudson-Odoi at wing-back having brought the winger off the bench before substituting him in what was a controversial incident in the draw with Southampton last weekend. "I totally can rely on him because he has delivered from the beginning," Tuchel added when asked about starting Hudson-Odoi. "He had some problems delivering from the bench but it is not a problem. "He learned from him and his reaction was immediate after the match. I was forgotten one hour after the match and this is how we behave. This is how we can trust each other also, and there is no need to make it bigger than it was.

Chelsea face a stern test against an Atletico Madrid side top of La Liga and three points clear of Real Madrid with a game in-hand. But while he knows it will be difficul to break down Atleti, Tuchel wants to see his men play with more rhythm going forward. "For me, every game is different and every match is special," said the German head coach. "It is one of the biggest challenges to play in the knockout Champions League, facing the number one team in Spain. "We lack a bit of precision and timing, but maybe it's like an orchestra where you learn a new song. On the way, there is a lack of timing and rhythm. The important things is that you are in the situations often and you have half chances. "Atletico are well known for not allowing many chances, but hopefully we can be efficient and take chances."
