Chelsea will meet Manchester City in a mouth-watering all-English Champions League final on May 29, after goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount secured them a 2-0 victory over Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge to seal the tie 3-1 on aggregate.
Christian Pulisic’s away goal in the 1-1 first-leg draw in Madrid gave Chelsea the advantage heading into the second leg, and Werner’s first-half header put them on course to a second European Cup final in two years for Thomas Tuchel.
Chelsea progress to Champions League final
Zinedine Zidane’s Real could not deal with the Blues’s quick counter-attacking. The only reason the Spanish giants came away with a respectable scoreline was the astonishing amount of second-half chances the Blues missed.
But Mount made sure of the win with a goal late in the second half.
Eden Hazard was largely quiet on returning to the Bridge as he watched his former club reach the Champions League final.
