OPINION: 4 mistakes Real Madrid made as Chelsea beat them to qualify for Champions League Final

The blues were at their best to surprise every football lover at Stamford bridge. They made tremendous impact that left everybody at amusement by beating the Spanish team today. Although Real Madrid tried to unleash their full force, Chelsea players remained unshakeable throughout the match.

These 4 costly mistake was the major reason why Madrid club experienced an unexpected defeat from Chelsea today.

1. Poor defence in the match;

The away team defenders did little or no great task to stop the blues strikers in that match. They made marking errors which paved ways for Chelsea players to penetrate their box severally, and were able to convert two chances to wonderful goals.

2. Substituting tactful players in the match;

The substitution of players like Vinicius Junior affected Madrid team. This striker made credible impact in the match as he constantly cuts in from the left side which stopped Ben Chillwell from moving forward in the match.

3. Starting the game with Eden Hazard;

Eden Hazard performance against his former team was so poor. He was not able to prove his worth and experience in the match. Hazard shouldn't have joined the starting team due to his recent unproductive performance in the club.

4. No strong midfielder to stop Ngolo Kante;

The Chelsea midfielder Kante was a big threat in the match. His presence added so much value to his team which led to their victory. The like of Kroos and Modric were unable to stop him in the match. Indeed Kante deserves the highest credit for a game well played.

These are the major mistakes that cost Madrid the chance to qualify for Champions league final match. Kudos to the Premier league top team for a match well played.
