Without being sentimental, Chelsea were so unfortunate against Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabéu yesterday, as they are out of the UEFA Champions League due to 4-5 aggregate. Statistically speaking, the Thomas Tuchel had 57% ball possession, 29 goal attempts, and 21 shots, whilst Real Madrid had 43% ball possession, 10 goal attempts, and 9 shots throughout the 120 minutes. Apparently, Chelsea deserved to win, but they were so unlucky.
Kai Havertz was spotted crying after the match, mainly because he missed many late big chances, which means Chelsea would have qualified for the semi-finals if he had utilized the chances. As a result, the Blues’ false No.9 literally blamed himself, having seen his sad posture after the 3-2 victory at Santiago Bernabéu.
However, Luka Modric and Saul Níguez consoled Hakim Ziyech, as the Moroccan wizard felt down after the match. Only ungrateful Chelsea fans will blame the players or Thomas Tuchel for their display yesterday, because they played to qualify for the UCL semi-finals, but they were just so unlucky to have missed so many chances during extra-time.
