Real Madrid entered the game with a 3-1 advantage from the first leg of the tie, putting them in a strong position to go to the competition’s semi-finals.

Los Blancos’ Karim Benzema scored all three goals for the visitors at Stamford Bridge.

The aim for Carlo Ancelotti’s side was to manage the second leg and ensure their spot in the last four.

However, Mason Mount scored a precise goal just 15 minutes into the game to pull the Blues back into the game.

Mount pounced on a Werner flick and sent a strong right-footed strike past Courtois.

Mount took a solid first touch before driving his shot into the right corner of the net after Werner nudged a flick into his path on the edge of the box.

Rudiger then scored a perfect header past Courtois six minutes into the second half to square the game 3-3 on aggregate.

Mount swoops in from the right flank with a lethal cross that glides into the middle. Rudiger attacked the delivery and placed his effort in the bottom-right corner with precision.

Timo Werner later put the Blues ahead in the 75th minute. The German maintained his cool and buried a low strike into the net.

Kovacic unleashed the forward in the inside-left channel, who cuts back beyond Carvajal’s challenge.

Werner fired his shot, it was deflected by Courtois and lands in the bottom-right corner.

Luka Modric, on the other hand, used a moment of magic to unlock the visitors’ defense, allowing Rodrygo to level the scores and send the game to extra time.

Karim Benzema wreaked havoc on Thomas Tuchel’s side once more, scoring his fourth goal of the match to ensure Los Blancos‘ place in the competition’s last four.
