04/12/22 – 23:56 – Summary of the match

An ode to football. This Tuesday, Real Madrid and Chelsea faced each other for the quarter-finals of the second leg of Champions League in Santiago Bernabeu. A totally crazy encounter that will go down in the annals of the competition. After the win (3-1) at Stamford Bridge, Carlo Ancelotti’s men probably thought they had done the hardest thing. It was without counting on the attacking armada of the Blues and the talent of their coach Thomas Tuchel. From the kick-off of the return leg, the Blues take the lead over their opponent. In the 15th minute, Mount, well served by Werner, opened the score with a nice curling shot. The Madrilenians, who are completely dominated, have no solutions and return to the dressing room with their heads bowed. In the second half, the Blues continued to crush their opponents and doubled the bet thanks to a helmet shot from Rüdiger (51st). Moments later, the Bernabeu gets scared. Alonso finds the net with a clear shot, eventually denied for a handball. The referee’s decision has been welcomed as a goal by Madrid players and the public, but the merengue ship continues to sink. In the 75th minute, on a great move by Werner, the German scores the goal of the ko. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are then eliminated. The Italian technician decides to bring in Rodrygo who equalizes the two teams on his first ball of the match thanks to a caviar from the outside of the foot of Modric (80th). At the end of regular time, the two teams are back to back. Back to the wall, the Merengue gain strength in extra time, relying on Benzema’s realism. On a cross from Vinicius, the Frenchman scored the goal (3-2) giving Real Madrid the lead. Despite some hot moves from the Blues, Carlo Ancelotti’s men finally validated their ticket to the Champions League semi-finals after a totally crazy match.
