Chelsea outplayed Real Madrid over two legs in the Champions League semi finals to reach the final over the last couple of weeks, and that is no exaggeration.
I think it is safe to say that Real Madrid haven’t exactly taken the defeat very well, after all, Chelsea absolutely were the underdogs in this tie before kick off.

Their experienced midfielder Toni Kroos was made to look nothing more than average by the likes of N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, and Mason Mount over the two legs, and it had his words before the match coming back to bite him.
He basically said that Chelsea have not had any players that make him lose sleep over the last 15 years. Although he is clearly already forgetting about Didier Drogba and co in 2012!
Mason Mount picked up on those comments after the 2-0 win this week, and Kroos should have kept his mouth shut but what a surprise he couldn’t!
Still sleeping ok. But well done yesterday. congrats. Good luck in your first CL final. https://t.co/XTbtIkCXys
