The game between Chelsea and Real Madrid was one of the most mouth-watering game at Stamford Bridge, in these quarter-final round.
The Blues were coming off a defeat to Brentford in the Premier League and while Real Madrid were coming off a victory in their game against Celta Vigo.
Notjustok & Topcitytune has decided to highlight five talking points from the first leg of this UEFA Champions League fixture.
(1) Karim Benzema:
The French striker was the reason Real Madrid qualified for this stage following his heroic performance against Paris Saint-Germain in the Round of 16. Benzema sent the away fans on their feet as he scored a brace in 3 minutes at Stamford Bridge.
(2) Kai Havertz:
The German scored an important goal in the first half to bring the Blues back into the game. Havertz has adapted into the striking position well enough in place of Romelu Lukaku.
(3) Lack of Concentration:
Thomas Tuchel needs to work on that deficiency in the Chelsea team. The Blues conceded three goals in ten minutes in the game against Brentford and conceded two goals in three minutes.
(4) Masterclass Game:
The game lived up to the expectations of football fans around the world, three goals were scored in the first half while the second half also started like a house on fire for the Galacticos
(5) Semi-final Spot:
The second leg between Real Madrid and Chelsea will be a mouth-watering game as both sides still have a chance to book a spot in the last four of the competition.
