Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric has revealed what made them defeat Chelsea at the Bernabeu during their clash for a place in the Champions League semi-final.

The Croatian soccer star said he felt his club side was dead being down to 3 – 0 to Chelsea at the quarter of the match.

Speaking on what made them defeat Chelsea, Modric revealed that it was their support from fans and changes made by their manager.

Chelsea took a 3-0 lead in the Spanish capital and was on their way to the Champions League semi-finals, leading 4-3 on aggregate. Mason Mount, Rudiger, and Timo Werner all scored.

After Luka Modric’s magnificent assist, which Rodrygo blasted in to send the contest to extra-time, Carlo Ancelotti’s side came back into the game.

Chelsea’s dreams were dashed as Karim Benzema headed home for a 5-4 aggregate victory.

“It’s impossible to put into words how incredible this game was,” Modric said afterward.

“We were dead until we scored the goal.” I can’t say we performed poorly, but they took advantage of their opportunities and scored three goals.

“We never gave up hope, never gave up battling, and we showed tremendous courage.” This venue, as well as the supporters, were really accommodating to us. They were there to cheer us on when we were down 3-0. That gave us even greater confidence in our ability to turn things around.
