Blues earn valuable draw in Madrid in Champions League semi-final first leg

Powered by automated translation

Karim Benzema earned Real Madrid a share of the spoils, but Chelsea will take a precious away goal back home after a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final in Madrid.

The London side were good value for a first-half lead, after Christian Pulisic profited from a clever pass from Antonio Rudiger to score the opening goal.

Chelsea should have had a greater cushion given their sharpness in the opening exchanges.

But Madrid hit back when Benzema scored his sixth Champion League goal of the season after a corner.
