Real Madrid and Chelsea The pass to the final will be played on May 5 in London. After the 1-1 draw in the Di StefanoThe English team seems more favorite, which, on the other hand, deserved to win the victory of Madrid. He passed over Real in the first half, but they did not know how to sentence now he must play it at Stamford Bridge. Madrid, for its part, trusts the goal of Benzema that seeing how it went to the game is worth its price in gold. A goal that, on the other hand, had its part of controversy because it seems that Casemiro he committed a foul on that play but the referee did not signal anything.
The staging of Real Madrid was with three centrals, Marcelo on the side, up Vinicius and Benzem
to and the titular midfield: Modric, Casemiro and Kroos. The coach wanted to pretend to be a solid team behind, but Chelsea destroyed the entire tactic of Zidane. The English team pushed the ball out of a Real Madrid that was unable to leave its field if it was not with a ball.
The white defenders knew absolutely nothing because Pulisic he was driving them crazy with his mobility. In the first quarter of an hour, Chelsea had three clear chances, with a save of Courtois to Werner included, and in the third, Pulisic scored 0-1. It was in the 14th minute when he stood before Courtois, he dribbled without Nacho ni Varane They pressured him and with all the time in the world he overtook Chelsea.
Real Madrid draw
The night was very black for those of Zidane that they were still completely lost and unable to stop a Chelsea that got fed up with creating and missing chances. Madrid’s reaction came with a shot at Benzema to post in the 22nd minute. That scare scared Chelsea a bit, although neither to think that the whites were going to be able to draw. On the contrary, it seemed closer to Chelsea’s second, but no. In a corner kick taken short, Marcelo put the ball at the far post, Casemiro He nodded him to the area, there he touched him Militao and the ball came to Benzema who controlled with his chest and with a volley scored the 1-1 in the 29th minute.
Chelsea claimed foul that seemed clear of Casemiro in your jump with Azpilicueta, but the referee didn’t see anything and neither did the VAR. The impossible was coming true. Real Madrid, on one and a half occasions, had drawn a match that had to be clearly losing. That goal gave air to the whites who had a few minutes of relief. Few, because Chelsea, on the contrary, kept generating and failing chances. The break was reached with that 1-1 that seemed an unthinkable result seeing the ‘wiggle’ that Chelsea had given to Real Madrid in the first half.
Zidane and the players learned from their disastrous bad first half, The coach brought the team together by advancing to the line of three centrals and with Casemiro passing the center of the field just and necessary. That caused that Chelsea did not have so much facility to arrive at the area of Courtois. Thus, the match was equalized and the two with the two teams more concerned not to make mistakes than to look for the second goal. And for mistake, the one who made Marcelo who risked being kicked out for a ticket to Pulisic, but the referee forgave him and only he showed a yellow.
Tuchel and Zidane they decided in the 65th minute that it was time to give the team a spin. The French removed Vinicius and put Hazard and the German refreshed his entire attack front by removing Pulisic and Werner. Those changes gave Chelsea more control of the ball and, therefore, more arrival in the area for Courtois.
In the final stretch of the match, Zidane gave air to the bands with Odriozola and Marco Asensio for Carvajal and Marcelo, respectively. A final stretch in which Chelsea seemed fresher and more dangerous, although they did not do crazy things in attack. Real Madrid, meanwhile, tried not to suffer having the ball and looking for an opportunity, especially in set pieces. Zidane surprised everyone when he decided to change in the extension to Benzema to put Rodrygo. In the end, the score was not moved and everything will be decided in London.
