Last-minute Axel Disasi heroics salvage a draw for Chelsea against Brentford

Chelsea

Axel Disasi’s late header salvaged a crucial point for Chelsea as they faced Brentford. The match witnessed a series of remarkable goals and strategic plays.

Brentford’s goalkeeper, Mark Flekken, conceded a corner, presenting Chelsea with an opportunity they capitalized on.

Disasi, rising above the defense, expertly headed in Cole Palmer’s precise cross, leveling the score with a mere seven minutes remaining.

Earlier in the game, Brentford showcased their prowess as Yoane Wissa executed a sensational acrobatic volley, propelling his team to a 2-1 lead. However, the lead proved short-lived as Chelsea’s resilience came to the forefront.

Sergio Reguilon’s well-placed cross into the box was skillfully headed away, but a moment of brilliance from Frank Onyeka allowed Wissa to contort his body and deliver a superb finish.

Despite the captivating goals, Brentford was unable to maintain their advantage until the final whistle.

The first half of the match saw Nicolas Jackson opening the scoring for Chelsea, displaying dominance in the opening 45 minutes.

Jackson’s involvement was evident, with a denied tap-in opportunity and a subsequent round of Brentford’s goalkeeper, Mark Flekken.

Jackson eventually found the net with a powerful header from Malo Gusto’s precise cross, securing his first league goal since mid-December.

In the second half, Brentford responded with determination, as Mads Roerslev equalized soon after the break.
