It took a moment of brilliance from Luka Modric to shatter the hearts of the Blues as they would have won in normal time and then Karim Benzema did usually does and scored the crucial winner in extra time.

It was a herculean task for Chelsea to overturn the 3-1 first-leg loss, and they did it in spectacular fashion and were already 3-0 up away from home, only for Modric to provide the ball of the night for Rodrygo to level things up on aggregate.

At a point in the game, Kante gave the ball away in the lead up to the incident and when Benzema scored the winner it was the former Leicester City man who was late to close down a loose ball in midfield in the build-up.

Rudiger, who is expected to leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires, focused on the mistakes his team made over the two legs.

He told BT Sport:

"Over the two legs if you make these kinds of mistakes you get punished.
"It was a do or die for us. Before the game not everybody thought we could get to 3-0 but then the individual class comes to light with Modric and Benzema, now we are here.
"The positive is we didn’t give up. Not many teams can come here and dominate them as we did. But over the two legs if you make the mistakes we did, you get punished."

Fabrizio Romano stunned over Modric’s assist

Meanwhile, Sports Brief earlier reported that Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano wants Luka Modric's assist against Chelsea in the Champions League exhibited at the museum.
