Albiol, Parejo, Torres, Lo Celso were immense for Villarreal, and Emery deserves a massive pat on the back for his gameplan. They have eliminated one of the best teams in Europe, and they are now through to the semi-finals of the Champions League for only the second time in their history. Emery has also made history tonight, advancing past the quarter-finals for the first time in his career.
Madrid 2 Chelsea 3
Real Madrid grind their way into the semi-finals of the Champions League with a 5-4 aggregate win over Chelsea, despite losing the second leg of the contest 3-2 at the Bernabeu. The Blues almost pulled off a remarkable comeback as goals from Mason Mount, Antonio Rudiger and Timo Werner put them ahead in the tie. However, Luka Modric unlocked the visitors’ defence with a moment of magic to allow Rodrygo to level the scores and send the game into extra-time. Karim Benzema then haunted Thomas Tuchel’s men once again, notching his fourth goal of the tie to secure Los Blancos’ place in the last four of the competition.
