UCL: Real Madrid Survive Chelsea Onslaught to Cruise into Semis

Chelsea fell short of reaching the semi final of the Champions League on Tuesday night as goals from Rodrygo and first leg hero, Karim Benzema, late on sent the Londoners crashing out.

Mason Mount had given the visitors the lead at the Santiago Bernabeu early in the first half, before Antonio Rudiger and Timo Werner completed the comeback, or sp they thought.

4:3 on aggregate and with just some few minutes left on the clock, Luka Modric sent a beautiful cliffhanger to the far post, up steps Rodrygo to tuck it home. The tie was level.

However, late into extra time, Benzema calmed the nerves around the Bernabeu with another fine finish.

Madrid will now face the winner of the Atletico Madrid vs Manchester City game on Wednesday.
