Karim Benzema scored another hat-trick to help Real Madrid take a lead of 3-1 against Chelsea in the 1st leg of the UCL Quarter-final. Ancelotti's men were brutal in attack as Vinicus Jr and Karim Benzema both looked threatening every time they had the ball. Chelsea tried their best but they lacked a finisher like Benzema. Kai Harvetz scored the only goal for the home team and gave them hope in the first half. But, a mistake by Mendy and Rudiger gave an easy chance to Benzema to finish things off.
