Chelsea will host Real Madrid on Wednesday night with a place in the Champions League final on the line.

Chelsea host Real Madrid in their crucial Champions League semi-final second leg on Wednesday night after earning a hard-fought 1-1 draw in Spain last week. 

The Blues stamped their authority on proceedings early on at Madrid’s Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium – where they played with the Santiago Bernabeu currently under renovation – with Christian Pulisic giving the visitors a 14th-minute lead. 

However, against the run of play, Karim Benezma spectacularly volleyed home an equalizer to set up a mouth-watering encounter in London.  

The eventual winner will face Manchester City in May’s final, after Pep Guardiola’s side beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 at the Etihad on Tuesday to seal a 4-1 aggregate win a place in the Champions League final for the first time.
