Chelsea vs Real Madrid LIVE: Champions League result and reaction tonight


Thomas Tuchel hoping ‘top guy’ N’Golo Kante can win Champions League at Chelsea

Chelsea welcome Real Madrid to Stamford Bridge this evening as the teams complete their Champions League semi-final tie, with a meeting against Manchester City awaiting the winner.

The aggregate score is 1-1 heading into tonight’s fixture, with Christian Pulisic having netted for Chelsea in the first leg before Karim Benzema pulled Madrid level in the Spanish capital. Still, Thomas Tuchel’s side will take encouragement from their performance in the reverse fixture and that crucial away goal by Pulisic, which will take the Blues into the final if the game ends 0-0 tonight. Chelsea have not reached the Champions League’s showpiece match since their triumph in 2012, while Madrid became the first club to retain the title when they lifted the trophy in 2017 – before securing a three-peat one year later. The 13-time European champions have the pedigree to progress here, but Chelsea under Tuchel seemingly have the potential to go all the way.

Following their 4-1 aggregate victory over Paris Saint-Germain – sealed with a 2-0 home win last night – Man City will stand between the winners of this semi-final and European glory. Having beaten Pep Guardiola’s team in the the FA Cup semi-finals last month, Chelsea might already be dreaming of lifting the Champions League trophy, but Real Madrid cannot be counted out – even amid a disappointing season for Los Blancos. Follow live updates from the semi-final second leg below.

A star in the making

At 22 years and 15 days Mason Mount is the second-youngest Englishman to score in the semi-finals of the Champions League, after Wayne Rooney (21y 182d v AC Milan). Mount is the first Englishman to score at this stage for Chelsea since Frank Lampard in 2008.

An all English final awaits as Chelsea join Manchester City in Istanbul

Chelsea 2 – 0 Real Madrid (3-1 agg)

90+4 mins: Full time. A brilliant display from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge was enough to knock Real Madrid out of the Champions League and take the Blues into their first final since 2012. Goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount gave Chelsea an unassailable lead and a brilliant performance from Edouard Mendy backed them up. N’Golo Kante was fantastic and Kai Havertz backed up his performance from the weekend. The Blues were the better team in both legs and deservedly set up a meeting with Man City at the end of the month.

Yellow card for Mount

Chelsea 2 – 0 Real Madrid (3-1 agg)

88 mins: The excitement may have got to Mason Mount who’s a little too forceful trying to win the ball off Eder Militao. He picks up a yellow card as Reece James and Hakim Ziyech come on for Chelsea. Cesar Azpilicueta and Mount himself are the ones replaced.

GOAL! Chelsea are going to Istanbul

Chelsea 2 – 0 Real Madrid (3-1 agg)

85 mins: Goal! Mason Mount sends the Blues into the Champions League final! N’Golo Kante nicks the ball off Nacho high up the pitch and runs it into the box. He gives the ball to Christian Pulisic who takes his time and draws Thibaut Courtois out of his goal. Pulisic holds up the ball before slotting it into the six-yard box. Mount runs in front of Eder Militao, meets the pass and taps it into the back of the net. Lovely stuff.

81 mins: N’Golo Kante dinks a pass into the Real Madrid box and feeds Christian Pulisic. He shoots but pulls the effort wide of the far post. Chelsea cannot get any closer to scoring yet they can’t find the back of the net.
