UCL: Chelsea beats Real Madrid, sets up all-English final with Manchester City
Chelsea set up an all-English Champions League final after beating Real Madrid.
The London club triumphed 2-0 on Wednesday night to put the Spanish giants out 3-1 on aggregate.
Goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount saw Chelsea oust the record 13-time European champions.
They now face Manchester City — who saw off the challenge of Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday — in the final on May 29 in Istanbul.
Getting a shot at adding to its 2012 Champions League title will vindicate Chelsea’s decision in January to fire club great Frank Lampard and hire Thomas Tuchel, the manager who led Paris Saint-Germain to last season’s final.
See below some of the reactions of the players as well as the fans of the great club:
