Chelsea may have been knocked out of the Champions League last night, but they are proud of their 3-2 win in the second leg over real madrid At the Bernabeu.
Despite trailing 3-1 from the first leg, the Blues made a superb 3-0 performance in Madrid, and were also a bit unlucky to see Marcos Alonso’s goal disallowed due to a handball, even if it was the right call at the end.
Real eventually came back to win 5-4 on aggregate and book their place in the Champions League semi-finals, but Chelsea made a small part of history by becoming the second English club to score three away goals against the Spanish giants…
3 – Chelsea became the second English team to score three goals away from home against Real Madrid in all European competitions, after Manchester United did so in their 3-3 draw in the European Cup in May 1968. Valeant.

As Opta Go mentioned in his tweet above, the only time this has happened before was in 1968 when Manchester United managed to draw 3-3 away at Los Blancos.
Chelsea came close to a major upset, and this stat sums up the impressive performance of Thomas Tuchel’s side, even if they didn’t finish.
