Real Madrid Showed Why They Are The European Giant Against Chelsea.

It was hard for Chelsea going into the second leg of the Champions League quarter final game against Real Madrid at Bernabeu yesterday night, the blues was down already losing 1-3 in the first leg.

Chelsea was with so much confidence going into that game as they just won their last match 6-0 against the English side, Southampton. And they as well want revenge against Real Madrid as some of their players were saying before the game that they still have something to play for.

 

After the game, Tuchel stated that this match will be considerably different under the lights, with an excited Los Blanco audience hoping for a repeat of last month’s European title. Last season’s Champions League run was dominated by the Blues getting the lead and shutting out their opponents, but this tie will put Tuchel and his team to the test in a very different way.

Karim Benzema scored a magnificent hat-trick in the first leg last week, giving him an incredible 11 Champions League goals in only eight matches, cementing his status as one of Europe’s greatest.

Chelsea’s lone goal came from a stunning header by Kai Havertz before halftime. He has scored six goals in his previous seven games, and he will be crucial to Chelsea’s chances of salvaging a point.

 

They were nothing short of spectacular today, causing Real Madrid to tremble and outplaying them for the whole of the game.

Luka Modric waved his wand, Rodrygo netted an equalizer, and Karim Benzema grabbed it in extra time as they were ten minutes away from a semi-final against either Manchester City or Atletico Madrid. Despite Chelsea’s valiant efforts to repair the damage done at Stamford Bridge, the tie was ultimately settled by Benzema’s head.

The French striker scored his 38th goal of the season in his 38th game, confirming his status as the best player in the Champions League this season.

The European champions were on the verge of an unlikely comeback thanks to goals from Mason Mount, Antonio Rudiger, and Timo Werner, but Rodygo saved the hosts before Karim Benzema clinched the quarter-final in extra time.

Chelsea is now out of the competition after they lost to Real Madrid yesterday night, though they got their revenge by winning 2-3 and they could not qualify due to the 5-4 goal aggregate.
