UEFA Champions League

Pulisic sets two records after scoring against Real Madrid

Chelsea visited De Alfredo De Stefano on Tuesday night for the first leg of their semifinal UEFA Champions League clash and both teams shared the spoils as the match ended in a 1-1 draw. Chelsea scored the opener from a superb strike from Cristian Pulisic after he demolished the Real Madrid defense all by himself.

Cristian Pulisic controlled a lofted pass from Antonio Rudiger before dribbling past Tibo Courtois and he roofed the ball in between Varane and Nacho. The American international was by far the best player on the pitch and his goal was enough to seal a point for Chelsea.

Cristian Pulisic broke two records after his fine strike against Real Madrid in a match that Real Madrid got their only goal from their only shot on target and this should be something that Chelsea will need to work on in the second leg of their clash.

Cristian Pulisic is now the first American player to score in the Champions League semifinal.Cristian Pulisic has scored the most goals by an American in the history of the Champions League.

He is probably the best player in the Chelsea squad and Chelsea will have an upper hand in qualifying after scoring an away goal today. What do you think about his goal compared to Karim Benzema's goal?
