Chelsea Created History By Sending Both Its Teams In The Champions League Final

Chelsea reached the Champions League final by beating Real Madrid with 2-0 goals at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. It was their first after 2012 and a historic moment for Chelsea as both of their teams – men’s and women’s – have reached the Champions League final.

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.
