Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has big hopes in the Champions League this season.

Giroud struck against Atletico Madrid as Chelsea won the first-leg of their Champions League round 16 tie 1-0 in Bucharest.

He told RMC: "I hope this competition will carry me like the Europa League in 2019 and bring us happiness.

"It's only the round of 16, but I, who have never passed this, would be happy to go to the next round and we'll see.

"We have to keep that, we have a game project and we are all focused. You can see that we have a lot of fun and I am the first."
