Karim Benzema ends Chelsea’s Champions League defense

Karim Benzema’s excellence marks the end of Chelsea’s Champions League defense. Thomas Tuchel can’t sue for the holder after a staggering drop at Stamford Bridge continues.

Karim Benzema reminded everyone how ruthless she was at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. He rejoined Real Madrid for another European night.

The 34-year-old striker scored 3 of 4 in clinical trials, while Romelu Lukaku missed two important opportunities at the other end after coming off Chelsea’s bench.

Benzema continues to show that he belongs to an elite group of European players. Only three players – Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Adriano – have scored a hat-trick in a row in the Champions League.

The French striker will certainly make headlines, but Vincius Jr’s performance should not be mentioned. He has been a constant headache for Chelsea’s defense and his partnership with Benzema is becoming a real problem for opposing teams. No player has combined for more goals (5 goals) in the competition this season.

Few teams have the experience to match this Real Madrid team. The same goes for Chelsea, the winner of last season’s competition. We showed this on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge. Having won Europe’s Best of the Year award 13 times, Real have now beaten the current champions of the Champions League in their last 4 such encounters. No team has done more than them (6).

Last season, many pointed to the aging midfielder as part of the trouble when Real went to Chelsea in the semi-finals. But with Wednesday night’s performance, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro have certainly put to rest concerns about their ability to compete at the highest level.

Saturday’s humility at Brentford’s hands was thought to be a mistake but was exacerbated by another disastrous Chelsea outing on a night of excruciating setbacks at Stamford Bridge.

The evening started with the current European champions aiming for a place in the quarterfinals and ended with the 13-time champions managing the Champions League clinic.

Chelsea’s defense and season are balanced. With the Premier League titles long gone, keeping the European crown was the last big prize offered on the part of Thomas Tuchel, but now even the Germans can’t claim a comeback.

At Paris Saint-Germain, Tuchel became the only manager in Champions League history to see a two-goal first-leg lead turned over at home when Manchester United knocked out Paris in the final 16th stage of the 2018/19 season. Exercise.

Tuchel won’t need to recall a defeat he has termed a “painful and brutal” defeat, especially while his recent management venture plunged into an unknown trough. But that’s the challenge ahead of Chelsea now, and the message is clear. Save the season while it is still there.

At the Etihad Stadium, it was a moment where the offensive side was lacking, as Diego Simeone’s Atlético Madrid were determined defensively. But when Phil Foden entered the field, everything changed. He made a difference for Manchester City.

Against tired legs, his impact was immediate and his arrival changed the dynamics of the game in an instant. He was able to catch the ball in a tight area and there were plenty of balls against this Atlético, but before City found the missed pass.

It was no coincidence. Others would have popped the ball back when he took possession from where he was. Foden’s skill and adventurous spirit looked forward instead. The space didn’t last long, but it was long enough.

It was a game-defining moment, but it wasn’t Foden’s only moment. He left again shortly thereafter, looking for the best ball that night, and bent out of his boot behind Atlético’s defense to find the man De Bruyne again.

In just over 20 minutes, he was good enough to be the protagonist of the match. He may be the best player in the city right now. He was removed from the starting lineup, but he still found his way. It is expected that he will be included in the lineup for the match against Liverpool. Foden is too good to deny.

Pep: Foden has a ‘special quality’.
“Phil was great.” Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola praised it. “He has special qualities. His reception is always a forward, his space is vast on the first stage and he is incredibly calm to give Kevin an amazing help.”

Liverpool win without sweat

There is rarely any narrative surrounding it in the Champions League quarter-finals, where the next domestic league match takes precedence.

This was the case for Benfica’s Liverpool, where Jurgen Klopp’s men played with one eye and many handbrakes over the weekend, but still clinching a huge 3-1 win. That was achieved without the excessive sweating or general energy expenditure associated with the final eight of European matches.

Klopp even allowed Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane’s legs to rest, winning the team with 30 minutes left of the match. This was a pretty clear hint that Klopp was planning to play both on Sunday, billed as a potential title keeper against Manchester City.

Interestingly, Klopp decided to keep Luis Diaz for 90 minutes. The Colombian was once again in the dynamic mood and scored an important third goal that allowed Anfield another two goals.

Does this mean he’s likely to be on the bench on Sunday, with Klopp going to play Diogo Jotta or Roberto Firmino in center and Mane in the three left? Or is Diaz such a machine? can he go back?

In midfield, Nabi Keita made a claim for one of two midfield spots in front of Fabinho in a holding role. His passing was quick and clever, and the energy to support the three frontmen was impressive. He made four shots in the 14th minute, dismissing Mane’s excellent head-to-head chance. There was also an assist for Diaz’s goal. Klopp has a big decision to make. 10 April – Manchester City (a) Premier League, Sky Sports Live
