Chelsea shared spoils on their first encounter with Real Madrid in the UCL semi ties
The Blues despite having dominated most of the game time saw their chances dabbled away by a disastrous Timo Werner.
Christian Pulisic with a master class play eliminated Thibaut Courtois to hand Chelsea a fine opener.
But sadly for the Blues, Benzema was quick and hot with his chest and finish inside the enemies box to pull the equalizer.
Several opportunities could have seen Chelsea win at least the first 45 minutes but the preferred striker for last night; Timo Werner is expert in firing into the wrong direction.

Speaking after the game, Tuchel said of the former Leipzig man; ‘He missed a big one at West Ham, he missed another big one here.
“That does not help, but it also does not help to cry about it or to regret it all the time.
“There are millions of people who have harder things to deal with than chances that you miss.
‘This is the good thing about sports, nobody cares tomorrow. Tonight we were sad, we were angry in the moment, this is normal.
“He is angry, he is maybe disappointed. Tomorrow he has a free day and the next day he needs to put his chin up.
“He is a professional guy, he is a top guy. He works hard, he is in the positions and from there on we go.
“We will never stop pushing, we will never stop believing and I have the feeling that everybody accepts the situation like it is.
“For a striker it’s easy to deal with, you score in the next game and nobody speaks about it anymore.”
