The European Cup match between Real Madrid and London Chelsea has come to an end. The rivals did not identify the strongest on the Spanish soil, having painted the world one. This meeting took place within the semi-final stage of the Champions League.
On the 10th minute of the game, Timo Werner did not realize the killer moment. The German hit at close range, but hit Thibaut Courtois.
Christian Pulisic disposed of his opportunity much better. On the 14th minute, Christian took advantage of Rüdiger’s long pass, skillfully dealt with Courtois and shot between Nacho and Varane, who were trying to help his goalkeeper.
Real Madrid’s response came on the 29th. Karim Benzema became the hero of the scoring episode. Marcelo loaded the ball into someone else’s penalty area, Casemiro played with his head, winning the “second floor” against Azpilicueta, then Militao made a discount behind his back, and Benzema struck a powerful blow, being in a difficult position, leaving no chance for Mendy.
The second half did not please us with goals and, in general, turned out to be not the most spectacular. The teams periodically created some sharpness in front, however, there were no effective strikes. In one of the episodes, Chelsea earned a very promising free kick, but the ball was an easy catch for Courtois. Everything will be decided in London.
Real – Chelsea 1: 1 (1: 1)
Goals: Pulisic, 14 (0: 1); Benzema, 29 (1: 1).
