Christian Pulisic scored a big away goal for Chelsea as he rounded off Thibaut Courtois to give his side a flying start against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final tie at the Valdedebas.
The American winger showed composure in abundance after Antonio Rudiger clipped it over the top and played him behind a flat Real Madrid backline.
His first touch actually took him away from the goal but the Chelsea forward kept his cool, floored Courtois and danced around him with quick feet and then finished past the scrambling Madrid defenders with aplomb.
Pulisic has found the rhythm at the right time for Chelsea as the former Borussia Dortmund player has now scored 4 goals in his last 6 starts across all competitions.
