At Stamford Bridge, Antonio Rudiger’s wonder strike at the beginning of the second quarter promised some relief, but it was only a fleeting escape from the club’s off-field ownership struggle and now on-field turmoil. Upon that, Christian Eriksen, Mads Roerslev, and Bryan Mbuemo scripted a remarkable 4-1 glorious victory for Brentford, highlighting the hosts’ brittle plight.

In a game wherein Real Madrid was handed three penalties, Karim Benzema struck two of those to put Los Blancos 12 points ahead at the atop of LaLiga Santander after a 2-1 win over Celta Vigo.

On Wednesday, Real Madrid will encounter Chelsea in the Champions League quarterfinals. Real Madrid will be in town for a sequel, and Chelsea will need to play a little bit differently than they managed tonight. Chelsea swung from being a score to the benefit at home to worrying if their season was destined to disintegrate in a matter of ten minutes.

They must bring this squad well on rhythm with Real Madrid heading to London in the Champions League quarterfinals coming to week and Crystal Palace in the FA Cup semifinals on April 17. Chelsea played ponderous, messing up the ball after missed pass.

Chelsea spectators were practically running out the gate when Wissa netted Brentford’s fourth goal. Tuchel shook Frank’s hand and marched immediately down the alley at the full-time blow, with blue seats spread across Stamford Bridge and Brentford people yelling “We want five” in the Chelsea players’ heads. He’ll be praying that this is merely a blip on the spotlight and not the commencement of the season dissolving.

Brentford’s gain moves them 11 points clear of the relegation spot, and whilst they can commence strategizing for the following year, Chelsea’s imminent and long-term future remains undisclosed. Four bids remain on the floor for the team, that are up for sale through April 11th.
