Real Madrid advanced to the Champions League semi-finals with a 5-4 aggregate victory over Chelsea.

After 15 minutes, Mason Mount scored to give Thomas Tuchel's side the lead.

Chelsea continued to dominate and Antonio Rudiger headed Mount's corner past Thibaut Courtois in the 51st minute.

Timo Werner's strike deflected off Courtois to put Real Madrid 3-0 down.

Rodrygo came on to replace Casemiro in the 78th minute and scored two minutes later.

Rodrygo sidefooted the ball past Edouard Mendy after Luka Modric found him with a superb outside foot pass.

With a 4-4 aggregate score, the game went to extra time. Karim Benzema's fourth goal of the tie put the hosts ahead in the 96th minute.

In the semi-finals, they'll face Manchester City or Atletico Madrid.

“These are the defeats we can digest and swallow because we left nothing to regret out there,” Tuchel told BT Sport after the loss.

“We did what we wanted to do and showed our team's quality and character. We deserved to go through, but we were unlucky. The players deserve all the credit.

The referee did not check (the disallowed Alonso goal), but that is what happens when you play Real Madrid in the Champions League.
