Werner could score his goal earlier when he was in possession of the ball in the 18th minute. He tapped the ball from Ben Chilwell’s cross but was offside at that time. But Mount made no mistake when he shot the second goal in 85th minute.
Chelsea’s goalkeeper Edouard Mendy also played a role in keeping Real Madrid away from victory. He pulled off a superb save from Karim Benzema when he took a shot at the box. Moments later Mendy again saved a goal from Benzema.
