In the round of 16 of the Champions League in 2005, the Blues met Barcelona. The English team’s first leg of the tie did not go as expected, as they were thrashed 3:1 by Barcelona, and they needed something special to advance to the quarter-final stage.

When Chelsea scored three goals in rapid succession to put the Catalans a goal behind on aggregate, it looked like they were going to win it all. But, just when it appeared that the game was finished, Ronaldinho sprang out of nowhere and scored to force a tie on aggregate.

John Terry scored a fantastic header with barely two minutes left on the clock to give Chelsea the final edge and bring the aggregate score to 5:4.

2. Chelsea defeated Vicenza 3-1. (1998 UEFA Cup Semi-final)

In 1998, Chelsea played Vicenza in the UEFA Cup Semi-Finals, and the Blues won.

The Blues struggled in the first leg, unable to score a single goal despite multiple opportunities, and the game ended in a 1:0 stalemate.

The fans had high hopes for the second leg, but it felt as if the game had already been decided after Vicenza scored in the first half.

Chelsea fans were given a second wind when Gianfranco Zola and Gustavo Poyet both scored in the opening half of the second half. On an aggregate basis, they needed one more goal to win the match against Mangiagatti.

Mark Hughes came off the bench just a few minutes before the final whistle and put the ball in the back of the net to make it a 3:1 final score.

3. Chelsea defeats PSG 2-0 (2014 Champions League Quarterfinal)

When Chelsea played Paris Saint-Germain in the 2014 Champions League final, they staged one of the most incredible comebacks ever seen in the Champions League.

Chelsea’s first-leg match against PSG was not one of their best, as the French champions hammered the Blues 3 to 1. The English team needed at least two goals in the second leg against the Germans to proceed to the semi-finals.

When Eden Hazard went down with an injury, it appeared that overcoming the French would be impossible. Andre Schurrle scored the Blues’ opening goal just before the halftime break, which was a fortunate turn of events.

Chelsea maintained a one-goal lead until the last minutes of the game, when Demba Ba hammered the ball into the net to make it 2:0. It was a breathtaking sight to witness.

Ajax arrived angry, prepared to avenge their Champions League first-leg loss to Chelsea by a score of 1:0.

With only 5 minutes on the clock, both teams had scored a goal, due to an Abraham own goal and a Jorginho penalty kick. Ajax added two more goals before the end of the first half, bringing the score to 3:1 thanks to another Arrizabalaga own goal.

Just 10 minutes into the second half, Van van Beek scored his second goal of the game, bringing the score to 4:1 in favor of the visitors.
