UEFA Champions League

Mendy's Heroics Sails Chelsea to the Champions League Final

Wednesday 5th was a night that became more of a nightmare than a normal night for the Los Blanco's. This is after they were eliminated from the champions league by the so thought English underdogs chelsea fc at the semifinals. Prior to the second leg, both teams were capable of qualifying for the finals as a first leg ended as a draw.

The game seemed to be open for both teams untill when chelsea scored that brought in the difference. However based on ball possession, real madrid had an upper hand.

A fine display by few of chelsea players ensured that they emerge victorious. Kai Havetz, Timo Warner, Kante and are some of Chelsea players that were on form tonight. Kante ensured that all the opponent midfield is destroyed while Kai made sure that crosses reach number nine.However, Eduord Mendy won most of the fans hearts by his heroic saves he made. Sincerely if it were not for Mendy then madrid could have won the match. Mendy from the first half made two crucial saves one being Benzema's close range header that Mendy was able to punch over the bar.

In the second half again, he made some more saves denying Real Madrid a chance to reach the finals since the beginning of this decade. Kudos Eduardo Mendy for leading chelsea to the finals.
