Chelsea beats Real Madrid and is headed to the Champions League Final
We're going to have an all English Champions League Final! After Manchester City took care of business against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, Chelsea followed suit on Wednesday by beating Real Madrid 2-0 on Wednesday.
While Madrid had plenty of chances to make things interesting, Chelsea keeper Edouard Mendy was incredible with some brilliant saves, while Timo Werner and Mason Mount scored for Chelsea FC.

The player of the match sure has to be Mendy, as he denied Karim Benzema twice in the first half with some saves that were out of this world.
As soon as Werner scored, it put pressure on Madrid, but they weren't out of it yet. However, Mount's finish in the 85th minute all but sealed things off for the Blues, who are getting ready to once again play for the Champions League glory.
Things of course will be interesting here now that they're getting ready to take on Manchester City on May 29 in Istanbul. These two clubs of course aren't strangers and know exactly what it will take to win.
Pep Guardiola against Thomas Tuchel with the Champions League trophy on the line? What more could you ask for? This Final is going to be nothing short of intriguing. Who will come out on top? We sure can't wait to find out.
