Chelsea has set up an all-English Champions League final against Manchester City after defeating Real Madrid 2-0 on aggregate at Stamford Bridge thanks to goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount.

The scoreline actually favored Madrid, as the 13-time European champions were unable to react to Chelsea's fast counter-attacking.

 


As they toyed with the exhausted visitors in the second half, the Blues should have run out even more convincing winners.

Werner's cushioned header into an empty net on 28 minutes, after Kai Havertz's initial effort had hit the crossbar, and Mount's tap-in five minutes from time were enough to secure their place in Istanbul on May 29.

 


Chelsea's $306 million summer spending spree, backed by Russian billionaire owner Roman Abramovich, has been rewarded with a first Champions League final since they won the trophy for the first time in 2012.

Chelsea's return to the biggest game in club football also marks the end of a remarkable improvement in the club's fortunes after Thomas Tuchel took over after Frank Lampard was sacked in January.
