When Connor Gallagher equalized with a shot from outside the area in the 81st minute, the Spanish coach made a change in substitutions and introduced Moussa Diaby with John Doran, clearly looking for a goal.

However, Chelsea came close, especially in stoppage time. Robin Olsen made an excellent intervention to keep the score at 2-2, but from the corner that followed, the ball ended up in the net after an effort by Axel Disasi, hitting the post and into the hands of the Swedish goalkeeper.
