Chelsea’s dramatic encounter was settled in the sixth minute of extra-time when Karim Benzema pounced to score Real’s second goal to secure an astonishing 5-4 aggregate for the Spanish giants. Mason Mount, Antonio Rudiger, and Timo Werner had earlier put the Blues on course to qualifying for the semis, only for Rodrygo to score with nine minutes left on the clock to force the tie into extra time.

“I think this is the very, very wrong time to do this after a final whistle and 126 minutes where one team gave all their hearts and fought until the last drop,” he added.
