Euro League | Chelsea frustrated by Leeds


Chelsea missed a chance to cement its place in the Premier League’s top four as Leeds held it to a frustrating 0-0 draw on Saturday.

Thomas Tuchel’s side had plenty of chances but couldn’t deliver the knockout blow in a hard-fought clash at Elland Road.

The Blues remain in fourth place and fifth-placed West Ham is just three points behind with two games in hand.

In the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich cruised to a 3-1 win away to Werder Bremen.

Tuchel is now unbeaten in 12 matches in all competitions since replacing the sacked Frank Lampard in January.

With clean sheets in its last five games, Chelsea have conceded only two goals in that period.

However, its goal-scoring issues under Tuchel resurfaced as opportunities came and went in the Yorkshire rain.

The results: Premier League: Leeds 0 drew with Chelsea 0.

LaLiga: Alavez 1 (Joselu 36-pen) drew with Cadiz 1 (Fernandez 84-pen).

Serie A: Sassuolo 3 (Locatelli 4, Duricic 51, Traore 81) bt Verona 2 (Lazovic 43, Dimarco 79).
