Real Madrid will not go away in the Champions League -- like the evil monster in the film that just won't die.

Yeah, Rudiger fell over, but there were still 3 other yellow shirts in the box and none of them closer than 10 yards to Benzema.
Everyone was recovering back at full speed after the turnover. I actually give Rudi a ton of credit for the awareness to try and pick Benz up but it all happened too fast.

Pulisic has been really bad since coming on. Can't even make simple passes cleanly.
He's also been the only Chelsea player in dangerous positions since about minute 85, but yeah, the execution is not there tonight.

Atletico are holding their own so far and have played well. Clearly, Atleti need to find some space but I'm happy with the first 20 minutes.

If only City had a £150m striker, their #8 wouldn’t have hit the post f from 6 yards out.

Foden's flesh coloured bandage is bothering me. I feel it ought to be light blue.

I hope Atleti score first. I don't mind 120 minutes of this. Such contrasting styles, fascinating stuff.

These last 10 minutes or so have been great for Atletico. I'm not optimistic that Atleti can keep it up, but they need at least one more good chance in this stretch.

You got your wish -- Foden is back on with a blue one.
From a distance it looks much better, but it's a testament to how little he's been in the game this second half that i'm still waiting on a close up.

This is the best period of the tie for Atleti, they look most likely to score at the moment. City don't look nearly so comfortable on the ball.
