Chelsea and Real Madrid played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday night.
It was the first competitive meeting between the two sides since the 1998 UEFA Super Cup final, and it did not disappoint for the most part as the two tectonic titans tussled in a thrillingly tactical affair.
A storm headed for Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, and that was just the whirlwind of the Blues who were right out of the traps.
Antonio Rüdiger pinged a delicious ball over the heads of the unwitting Real Madrid defence for Christian Pulisic in the 14th minute.
The American fashioned time and space when bringing it down, danced around the infamously hapless Thibaut Courtois and kept it hard and true for 1-0.
Mason Mount started bright as a button on his 100th senior appearance for the Blues.
Constantly found space between the lines, but his influence waned as the night wore on.
