Chelsea FC humiliates Real Madrid,reach first Champion’s League Semi finals in 9 years

Nine years after lifting the Champions League Cup,the Blues have booked a place in the Champions League final against Man City,thanks to Timo Werner and Mason Mount.

Werner nodded into the empty net from one yard out in the first half, before Mount turned home Christian Pulisic’s cross late on, as Chelsea defeated Real 3-1 in the semi-finals on aggregate.

This 3-1 aggregate win over Real Madrid was far closer than it should have been, but the real story of the tie – and almost these last four months – was the huge gaps after Thomas Tuchel’s blue arrows left so many white shirts for dust.

It was a 2-0 on the night that could have been a 6-0, and brings Chelsea’s third ever Champions League final, to make it a third all-English showpiece

Poor Real Madrid…they just couldn’t keep up with Chelsea, in so many senses.They look left behind, just as so many Chelsea players surged away from them.

Tuchel has meanwhile had a dramatically rapid effect of his own. This final is a testament to him. There will be talk of how this is as much Frank Lampard’s final, but the truth is that the German has arrested a crisis situation with impressive speed.

The only flaw remains that finishing.

It wasn’t a night to rue in the end, but only celebrate.

Madrid really looked set to collapse any time Chelsea broke, which served as a symbolic illustration of the difference in profile between the sides.

There were just gaps appearing everywhere, which blue shirts were flooding into. Madrid had been served warning before the opening goal, with the ball in the net, only for Timo Werner to stray offside.

There could be no such mistake with the eventual goal. And certainly no missing.

This was not just Chelsea breaking, though. It was resolve, perseverance, and some perfect combinations.

There was also the impetus of N’Golo Kante. So often cast as a destroyer, the French midfielder flowed forward here in such a smooth manner. It was almost like an Eden Hazard run – when he was at his sharpest.
