Chelsea players celebrate goal against Real Madrid

Chelsea scored a potentially vital away goal in a 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in their Champions League semi-final first-leg tie on Tuesday night.

Chelsea took the lead after 13 minutes when Christian Pulisic rounded Thibaut Courtois to give Thomas Tuchel’s side the perfect start.

Madrid managed to fire their way back into the game against run of play when Karim Benzema latched onto a couple of knockdowns in the Chelsea area to level the scores in thumping fashion (29).

The game slipped into a more docile tempo after the break with both teams seemingly happy with their lot. Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard was introduced with 25 minutes left but he had no impact on the game as Chelsea looked in control in typically assured fashion under Tuchel.

The two teams will meet again next Wednesday (May 5) at Stamford Bridge to decide who reaches the final in Istanbul on May 29.
