Real Madrid vs Chelsea FC: Result, Ratings and Quotes

Player ratings: Real Madrid vs Chelsea FC

Outcome

Chelsea and Real Madrid played the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals on Tuesday night.

Madrid, of course, headed into the game at the BernabΓ©u as clear favorites to advance after a masterclass from Karim Benzema in the reverse fixture that saw Real win 3-1 on the day.

And, despite Chelsea’s best efforts, they were unable to reverse that deficit this week.

The tie started pretty much from wing to wing, but it was actually Chelsea who took the lead in the 14th minute when Mason Mount held on to a through ball from Timo Werner before getting past Thibaut Courtois.

Chelsea then added their second of the day five minutes into the second half when Antonio Rudiger headed his header towards goal.

Chelsea thought they had completed their historic comeback in the 74th minute when Timo Werner came on before sitting down three players and getting past Courtois.

However, a bit of magic from Luka Modric brought Real Madrid back to level just six minutes later.

Karim Benzema stepped up five minutes into extra time to put Madrid ahead and win the tie.

Ratings of Real Madrid players

Thibaut Courtois (6) – Should have done much better with Werner’s goal. He was a late composite figure when needed.

Daniel Carvajal (4.5) – Werner’s poor follow-up for Chelsea’s third of the night.

Nacho Fernandez (5.5) – Didn’t do much wrong on the night but allowed three Chelsea goals.

David Alaba (4.5) – Dragged out of position for the Mt opener.

Ferland Mendy (4) – Struggled to deal with the threat of Loftus-Cheek and Reece James down the Chelsea right.

Casemiro (3) – Had trouble picking up Loftus-Cheek, who was constantly drifting into a central spot from his right-back role. He was lucky not to give away a penalty for his trip over Havertz early in the second half. Power off after 78 minutes.

Luka Modric (8) – Quiet first half and was to blame for Chelsea’s second goal, which Rudiger brought down too easily. However, he then played a simply sensational ball to Rodrygo at the end of regulation time to draw Madrid level and was the home side’s best player in extra time.

Toni Kroos (5) – Retired after 73 minutes following a largely ineffective performance.

Federico Valverde (6) – Didn’t offer much going up front, but was good going back.

Karim Benzema (7) – The Frenchman’s threat was largely neutralized in the first 45, boiling down to a long-range effort that nearly gave Mendy a problem due to a deflection. He hit the crossbar with a header in the 65th minute and then scored the crucial goal in the 95th minute.

Vinicius Junior (6.5) – Troubled Chelsea down the right flank due to his breakneck pace. Good cross for Benzema’s goal.

substitutes

Edouardo Camavinga (6) – A much livelier presence than that of Kross and Casemiro.

Marcelo (5.5) – Much more effective than Mendy in his entry and was key to finding Modric in the prelude to Madrid’s first.

Rodrygo (6) – Excellent definition of the Madrid tie in the 80th minute.

Lucas Vazquez (5) – Made some decent blocks and tackles.

Dani Ceballos (N/A) – Little time on the pitch.

Chelsea Player Ratings

Edouard Mendy (5.5) – Had nothing to do in the first half except take a hit. He couldn’t do much with Rodrygo’s goal and then got sidetracked by Benzema’s goal.

Reece James (6.5) – Had the unenviable task of dealing with Vinicius Junior that night, a task made that much more difficult when James was booked for a foul on the Brazilian less than 10 minutes later.

James kept the South American quiet for long stretches, but he wasn’t following when he set up Benzema.

Thiago Silva (6) – He did a good job shutting down Benzema in the first 45. Bad marking by Rodrygo for his goal.

Antonio Rudiger (7) – Helped neutralize Benzema’s threat on 90 minutes and was also a useful asset in attack thanks to his aerial prowess – headed in the second goal of the day. However, he slipped trying to challenge Benzema when he scored Madrid’s second.

Marcos Alonso (5.5) – Sloppy in possession from the start and didn’t follow Rodrygo well for his goal. He thought he had scored Chelsea’s third of the day, but VAR ruled it out.

N’Golo Kante (6) – A much brighter start to this game than the first leg, with Kante completing 34 of his 39 passes in the first half on Tuesday, 16 more than he managed in the first half of the reverse encounter . However, the Frenchman grew tired as the match progressed and his pressure on Vinicius was poor in the build-up to Benzema’s goal. Power off after 100 minutes.

Mateo Kovacic (7.5) – Started the game well, coming back to help Chelsea’s four defenders and breaking up the game with some key interceptions and tackles. He also provided the through ball for Chelsea’s third.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (7) – Made a clever run into midfield, dragging David Alaba out of position, to provide the pre-assist for Mount’s first goal. He could have tracked Vinicius better for Real’s game-winning goal.

Mason Mount (8) – Poor in possession at the start of the match, but would score the first goal with a beautiful curling finish and also set up Rudiger for the second.

Kai Havertz (6) – The pass was solid and he tried to pressure from the front. Very unlucky not to have earned his team an early penalty in the 45th second. He missed a great chance at the end.

Timo Werner (8) – Provided the assist for Mount’s first goal and then was incredibly composed to score Chelsea’s third. Pulled out after 83 minutes.

substitutes

Christian Pulisic (3) – Had two chances in regulation time but missed both.

Hakim Ziyech (3) – Created very little when he came on.

Saul Niguez (2) – Offered very little when they brought him in. A poor Tuchel submarine.

Jorginho (3) – He dragged a deflected shot in the final moments when he should have at least tested the goalkeeper.
