Chelsea complete Real Madrid and join City in final

A 100% English final will take place on May 28 in Istanbul. Chelsea managed to qualify by finishing Real Madrid thanks to goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount.

After a draw in the previous meeting, with goals from Pulisic and Benzema, the showdown was expected between Chelsea and Real Madrid.

The Spanish giant, who has not seen the final for two years, seemed determined to make a difference in the first period, including two failed attempts by Karim Benzema.

Slightly dominant, Chelsea came to conclude in the 28th minute, thanks to Timo Werner who finally found the net after a goal refused for offside.

After a first period with few chances on both sides, the second was marked by an obvious dominance from Chelsea who tried their luck on numerous occasions but to no avail.

Real Madrid, technically below, obviously can’t do it and is deceived once again by the Blues thanks to a strike from Mason Mount on a caviar from N’Golo Kanté.

Moroccan international Hakim Ziyech entered in the 87th minute and only got a few minutes of play, before the referee signaled the end of the match.

Chelsea therefore joined Manchester City in the final, the second in a row for Thomas Tuchel after taking PSG last season.
