Chelsea 2-0 Real Madrid: Chelsea set up all-English Champions League final showdown with Man City

Timo Werner and Mason Mount scored the goals as Chelsea booked their ticket for Istanbul and a final showdown with Manchester City.

Chelsea reached their first Champions League final since 2012 with a 2-0 victory over Real Madrid in their semifinal second leg at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, winning the tie 3-1 on aggregate.

Chelsea, like in the first leg, had a lot of space. They created the first few chances and even found the net, but Timo Werner’s opener was denied by an offside flag. Madrid retaliated, but Chelsea’s keeper saved the day with a strong hand. After Kai Havertz hit the crossbar, Timo Werner nodded the easiest goal he’ll ever score into an empty net. They sealed the tie late on when Mount tapped the ball past Thibaut Courtois for two.

Even with the missed chances, this was a typical Chelsea performance, and with their FA Cup semi-final victory, there is a real sense Tuchel’s team can properly test Pep Guardiola’s ferocious City side in Istanbul.

Chelsea will face Manchester City in Istanbul on May 29 in a second all-English Champions League final in two seasons.

A 2012 repeat, or does Pep’s 100% final’s win streak continue?
