Chelsea showed their might on Wednesday night in the second leg of the Champions League against Real Madrid. The team led by Thomas Tuchel was enormous to take the king of the tournament out of the game and the goals of Timo Werner, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic (in the first leg) were enough for the English team to take the second ticket to the final of the League of Champions.
Despite the fact that the American left winger Christian Pulisic had shown himself as a leader on the field of play for the Blues, the German coach chose to leave him on the bench so that he would come out as a revulsive and enhance the attack in the second half, something which he did very well, as he was dressed in glory with an excellent attendance.
After Timo Werner gave the team the lead by scoring in the 28th minute, Captain America came from the bench to help his team finish the victory. It was the 85th minute of the match when Kanté stole the round in three quarters of the field, this filtered for Pulisic, who faced Courtois in the hand-to-hand, but with great cold blood, the North American waited for Mount to enter with an advantage and gave a diagonal delayed for his partner to score 2-0.
