Chelsea Will Play Manchester City In An All-English Champions League Final

Chelsea will play Manchester City in an all-English Champions League final on May 29 after recording a 3-1 aggregate win over Real Madrid.

Thomas Tuchel's side, who held an away-goal advantage having drawn the first leg in Madrid, dominated for large periods on Wednesday night.

Los Blancos, meanwhile, struggled to make any sort of impression as the likes of Eden Hazard and Vinicius Junior made very little impact on the semi-final second leg clash.

Even the return of Sergio Ramos, who started his first Real Madrid game in seven weeks, couldn't rally the troops as a goal from Timo Werner opened the scoring for The Blues.

After a season of ups and downs, the German striker found the net as Chelsea went 1-0 up after just 28 minutes.

He netted a 12th goal of the season from close range after some brilliant work from N'Golo Kante and Kai Havertz.

Despite dominating possession for the majority of the game, Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy was forced to make a number of big saves for the home side, in particular from the in-form Karim Benzema.

Chelsea continued their domination in the second-half and really, it could have easily been three or four if it wasn't for the heroics of Thibaut Courtois on his return to Stamford Bridge.

Mason Mount, who has been outstanding all season, then put the nail in Madrid's coffin with five minutes remaining when he made it 2-0 on the night with a simple tap in.
