Los Blancos sealed their progress to the semifinals following a 2-0 win in the second leg at Stamford Bridge.

Samba Boy, Rodrygo was the star of the day on the night as he netted both goals to give the LaLiga giants a 4-0 aggregate victory.

Chelsea become unrecognisable

The latest defeat means the Blues are on a run of four consecutive defeats in all competitions, three of which have come under interim manager Frank Lampard.

Chelsea are also struggling in the Premier League where they sit 11th on the table and in danger of missing out completely from Europe next season.
