14th: GOAL FOR CHELSEA! Christian Pulisic opens the scoring for the Blues after walking through the Madrid defense.
9th: what stop Thibaut Courtois in front of Timo Werner who found himself alone against the Belgian goalkeeper after a cross from the left.
Three of the four semi-finalists – Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester City – were, along with nine other big European clubs, behind the Super League, stillborn in 48 hours. UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin has not ruled out the idea of taking sanctions against these three “putschists”.
In the meantime, the game resumes its rights with an enticing Real Madrid – Chelsea is on the menu. Inconstant this season, Real have just released Atalanta and Liverpool, Real are therefore in the semi-finals for the first time since 2018. In La Liga, Zinédine Zidane’s troops are in an exciting fight for the title with Atlético from Madrid, Barcelona and Seville. On Saturday, Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard’s team shared 0-0 at home against Real Betis. Given this disappointing performance, Chelsea did not leave beaten. Since Thomas Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard in January, Chelsea have been doing better. The German wants to reach the Champions League final for the second year in a row, last year he lost with PSG to Bayern Munich. His team are attacking Real after taking out Atletico Madrid and Porto.
The return matches of the semi-finals are scheduled for May 4 and 5. The final will take place on May 29 in Istanbul.
