Chelsea would have least expected what hit them in the UEFA Champions League today when they welcomed Spanish Giants Real Madrid to the Stamford Bridge Stadium on Wednesday evening. The Los Blancos had an astonishing performance in the match as they condemned Chelsea to a humiliating 3-1 defeat thanks to a hat-trick from Karim Benzema.
Ahead of this match, Karim Benzema was always seen as the ex-factor in the Real Madrid team that could cause huge problems for Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League. Well, the Blues were ignorant to the fact Karim Benzema was a big threat to them in the match and they definitely paid the price for their actions.
The French International was given so much room in Chelsea’s defensive area to net those three goals in the match. The 34-year-old had a performance of his life in the match as he singlehandedly made Chelsea lose their first leg clash with Real Madrid. I believe this will sound as a warning to Chelsea ahead of their return leg tie with Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
