Timo Werner scored one of the most easiest chances in his career as he headed home a Kai Havertz strike into the net.

After a fine link up play between Werner and N’Golo Kante, a fine pass from the Frenchman found Kai Havertz who chipped a wonderful ball over Thibaut Courtois, but it came off the bar and landed in front of Timo Werner who had the simplest task of heading the ball into the net.

Speaking after the game, Werner admitted that waiting for the ball to come down felt like hours.

“It took hours until the ball was coming down,” Werner told BT Sport after the game. “But before the goal, how we played to get Kai free in this position, a double pass with me and NG (N’Golo Kante), and he then played a very good ball to Kai. He hit the bar and it’s an easy goal for me.”

Werner also admitted that the team could have done better with the chances, to kill the game earlier.

He added: “The chances we created, most of them at the beginning of the second half, were very good. Maybe if you can say something to us today is the fact that we could decide the game earlier in the second half. But in the end, it’s not easy to play against Real Madrid and we did very, very well.”
