What a match! So scintillating!

Chelsea’s reign as European Champions ends in Madrid. Karim Benzema’s headed effort in extra-time sends Los Blancos into the semi-finals..

Chelsea are out of the Champions League.

The European champions were two goals down following last week’s 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge but Mason Mount’s strike on 15 minutes gave the Blues the perfect start.

Antonio Rudiger then levelled the tie after half-time with a header at the back post, before Timo Werner’s deflected finish stunned the hosts as Chelsea led on aggregate.

But substitute Rodrygo responded to pull Real Madrid level five minutes later and force extra time, where Karim Benzema put his side ahead with another headed goal in the tie. It means Real Madrid will advance to the semi-finals, where they will face either Manchester City or rivals Atletico

Full time Real Madrid 3-4 Chelsea (aggregate 4-5)
