Chelsea hold Real Madrid in Champions League semifinal first leg


Christian Pulisic scored an important away goal as Chelsea held 13-time winners Real Madrid to a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal in Spain.


The US international put Chelsea ahead on 14 minutes at Valdebebas with a well-taken finish, but Real Madrid levelled on the half-hour following a superb volley from Karim Benzema.

The Frenchman moved level with former Real Madrid striker Raul after notching his 71st Champions League goal, fourth most in the competition’s history.
