Former Champions league winning team Real Madrid of Spain got a shaky semi-final first leg when the club playing at home at Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium escaped losing to Chelsea club of England playing 1-1 in the 1st Semi-final on Tuesday night.

The former Borussia Dortmund ace joined a select group of USMNT stars to net in the knockout stages, although none had previously scored in the semis

Christian Pulisic made U.S. history on Tuesday after a finely taken goal which put Chelsea ahead in their Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid.

The Pennsylvania native needed just 14 minutes to open the scoring at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano and give the Blues the perfect start to their tie.

And in doing so he managed a feat which none of his compatriots had ever achieved in the history of the competition.

Pulisic came to the fore early in the first half with a wonderful individual effort in Madrid.

But none of the white shirts in the Madrid box could do anything as Pulisic drilled his effort into the net, putting the visitors 1-0 up in the first half.

Karim Benzema getting an assist from Eder Militao scored the equalizer in the 29th minute.

A good six yellow cards were flashed, five to Real Madrid and one to Chelsea by Ref. Danny Makkelie from Neitherlands.

The second leg comes up at Stamford Bridge in London on Wednesday 5th May.

Meanwhile Manchester City is to host PSG on Wednesday 28th April in Manchester in the 2nd semi while their 2nd leg holds on Tuesday 4th May,

The finals of the Champions League is scheduled for 29th May.
