Chelsea captain believes the side must tie down Madrid star man in order to make it into the final stage
Christian Pulisic opened the score line after Timo Werner missed a big sitter that would have handed the Blues an earlier lead.
Real Madrid managed to pull the goal back with a super fine finish from Karim Benzema who also tried to cause more pains after hitting the woodworks.
The 33-year-old continued to be a threat throughout the game and Chelsea captain suggests they must contain him in order to advance into the next round.

“We started with courage, we had to perform at our best level. The semi-final of a Champions League asks you to play your best. We missed that little last pass where we could choose the best option.
“Benzema scored a great goal. He is a very good striker. He dropped, he got the ball and got that goal. We have to be aware for the next game.”
The goal on Tuesday night marked the Frenchman’s 277th for Los Blancos.
