Atlético Madrid’s Champions League clash with Chelsea was a pretty drab affair for the first 70 minutes.

But you can always rely on Olivier Giroud to bring a touch of class to proceedings.

The Frenchman broke the deadlock in Bucharest with a stunning bicycle kick that was initially ruled out for offside.

But upon closer inspection, the ball actually touched Mario Hermoso on its way through to the Blues hit-man, and the goal stood.

That’s what VAR is for, and that’s why Giroud is a joy a to watch.
