Real Madrid beat Chelsea 3-1 in London, with a Karim Benzema hat-trick, this Wednesday in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals to face the second leg next week at the Santiago Bernabéu with a significant advantage. Benzema opened the scoring with a header (21), repeated with another header (24) and closed his account to an empty goal (46), but Kai Havertz, also with a header, closed the gap (24) to maintain the hope of the reigning European champion .

Chelsea began by dominating the ball against a Real Madrid team that was pressing trying to win the ball back quickly to go on the attack. Chelsea tried to get close to Thibaut Courtois's door by coming in from the flanks, but were met by Real Madrid's orderly defence. The English team also had problems with their pressing, which was too slow, which favored Real Madrid, who soon found the goal.

A new arrival from Vinicius on the left ended with a cross into the area, where Benzema appeared to finish off a header to the nets of Edouard Mendy (21). Just three minutes later, the French extended the merengue account with another header in the race from a pass from Luka Modric (24). Behind on the scoreboard, the English team did not lower their arms and rushed forward in search of goal, but it was difficult for them to find the gaps in the compact white defense.

Thomas Tuchel's team managed to close the gap when Havertz headed a cross into the area almost from close range (40). As soon as he came back from the break, Benzema took advantage of a serious error by goalkeeper Mendy who had left his area and, under pressure from the Frenchman, gave Antonio Rudiger a poor performance. Benzema cut the pass to go towards the goal and score on an empty goal to make it 3-1 (46), which made the game very difficult for the locals.

The English team began to create more problems with the entry of striker Romelo Lukaku for Christian Pulisic (64). In the final minutes, Real Madrid began to feel tired, backing down and facilitating local arrivals, although they managed to hold on to the result.
