Real Madrid stuns Chelsea 2-0 in Champions League second leg to book semifinals place

Real Madrid booked their place in the Champions League semi-finals with a 2-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Despite having a two-goal advantage after their first-leg win at the Bernabeu, Real had to overcome some nervy moments in west London as N’Golo Kante and Marc Cucurella both wasted huge chances for the hosts, who once again were wasteful in front of goal and were made to pay the price.

That poor finishing roved costly after the break as Rodrygo put the visitors up on the night after a Trevoh Chalobah error, before providing the finishing touch on yet another European job well done for Real with his second late on, put on a plate for him by a sensational Federico Valverde run.

The 14-time champions are through once more to the last-four where they will likely face Manchester City, barring a stunning comeback from Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.
