Chelsea welcomed Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge earlier tonight as they looked to pick up a win and book a place in the final of the UEFA Champions League. The Blues made a bright start to the game and made the breakthrough in the 28th minute courtesy of Timo Werner’s goal. Thomas Tuchel’s men maintained a solid shape and went into the half-time interval one goal to the good.
The West London outfit created a lot of clear-cut opportunities to add to their goal tally in the second half and finally managed to kill the game off in the 85th minute when Mason Mount scored with a tidy finish. The contest ended with Thomas Tuchel’s men securing an impressive 2-0 win (3-1 on aggregate) over the Madrid giants.
