Real Madrid comeback:The magic🧙‍♂️🔮 of the Bernabeu| Nyasha Nation

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has actually credited the 'magic of the Bernabeu' for his side's Champions League return against Chelsea to reach the semi-finals on Tuesday night.

Real held a two-goal advantage from the first leg at Stamford Bridge but saw that vanish when goals from Mason Mount, Antonio Rudiger and Timo Werner turned the tie around and gave Chelsea the aggregate lead with only 15 minutes remaining.

But Rodrygo drew back a sensational late goal to force extra-time, before Karim Benzema continued his best ever season by winning it in the extra period.

" At no stage did I think that it was over, especially since we were playing here at the Bernabeu. It's hard to put it into words, but this magic stimulates you on," Ancelotti revealed.

" It helped to offer the whole team that energy increase to get through to the semi-finals the magic of this stadium assists the players to never ever give in."

Benzema's tie-winning goal was his 38th of a significantly amazing season and his 12th in the Champions League alone after succeeding hat-tricks in current games.

The Frenchman has grown at Real since taking over from Cristiano Ronaldo as the primary man in 2018, with this season representing the most prolific of his career.

His previous record tally for a single season was 32 goals in all competitors and you could not bet against him reaching 50 prior to 2021/22 is over.

Speaking ahead of the Chelsea game, Ancelotti didn't hide away from how important the player is.

There were slight issues that Benzema had actually suffered an injury as he appeared in pain towards the end of the game and appeared to be hobbling. However Ancelotti allayed fears."There's absolutely nothing wrong with Benzema," he validated.
