CHELSEA beat Real Madrid 2-0 to see them head through to the Champions League final in a memorable match for the Blues.
Thomas Tuchel’s men ultimately won the tie 3-1 on aggregate following the first-leg draw in Madrid.

And as the score line suggests, it was actually fairly comfortable for them apart from a couple of world-class saves from Edouard Mendy in the first half to keep them in the tie.
It could have and should have been a totally different ball game for Chelsea though, despite Mason Mount’s late goal making it 2-0 on the night.
The Blues had plenty of chances to score more goals throughout the match, and they could probably have actually won by three or four in the end.
It was a world class performance from Chelsea over the two legs to get to the final of domestic football’s most prestigious competition.
But – without being too negative – they were wasteful and on another night may not have made the final in Istanbul.
Their attack is young and still learning, so it is something that will improve and get better in time.
When they get better in the final third and make better decisions they will be challenging to be one of the best teams in the world under Tuchel.
The German coach has come in and brought confidence to this whole squad – getting them playing some great and pragmatic football, too.
