By Walter Adewale

Chelsea beat Real Madrid of Spain to set up an all-English Champions League final against Manchester City on 29 May.

The London team, After a 1-1 draw in Spain, Timo Werner, who earlier had a goal disallowed for offside, headed Chelsea ahead after Kai Havertz’s chip rebounded off the bar.

Real’s Karim Benzema had a low strike and a header superbly saved by Blues goalkeeper Edouard Mendy who could be described as the block between the two team.

The blues showed uncommon determination as they dominated the second half and Mason Mount scored late on from close range for a 3-1 aggregate win.

The defeat of Real Madrid who are many times winners of the Championship trophy sets up Chelsea, the three times winners against first time finalists and rampaging Manchester City in Istanbul.

Chelsea in one of the previous finals of the Champions League lost on penalties to Manchester United in 2008 and then beat Bayern Munich in another shootout in 2012.

Manchester City beat Paris St-Germain 2-0 in the second leg of their semi-final on Tuesday to seal a 4-1 aggregate victory. It will be the second all-English final in three seasons after Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0 in 2019.BBC
