Goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount secured a 3-1 aggregate victory for the Blues over Real Madrid and sent us to our third Champions League final.
N’Golo Kante was named man of the match in both legs against Real Madrid and the stats against Real Madrid on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge show why.
Kante created three chances against Real Madrid (the highest in the game) and should have scored against the Spanish side in the second half.
He played a part in both goals scored by Chelsea. Retrieving the ball in midfield, Kante exchanged passes with Timo Werner before threading through Kai Havertz to hit the crossbar. Werner scored from the rebound.
Kante also played a part in Chelsea’s second goal, dancing forward to tee up Christian Pulisic before the American delivered for Mason Mount to convert.
Kante was also important for Chelsea defensively, cleverly reading the game and jumping in at the perfect time to make tackles and interceptions. Between him and Jorginho, they made 11 interceptions in the game, more than the entire Madrid side put together.
Kante also covered the most distance in the game, second only to Kai Havertz. Kante covered 11.38km while Havertz covered 11.63km. Jorginho came third with 11.30km.
Kante won all his aeriel duels, had 45 touches of the ball, made 4 penalty area entries, won 4 duels, made 2 ball recoveries, made 1 block and completed 1 take-on.
