A clean penalty kick from Juru Ritten and an own goal from Real Madrid ensured Chelsea won 2-1 and secured qualification from the group stage of the Champions League.
Retten played from the start for Chelsea, who cemented their place at the top of their Champions League group in a match against Jumbo Madrid, who had no chance of promotion even before the match.
The Norwegian winger showed himself several times, also in a scoreless first half, including a powerful shot on target and a perfect pass for captain Erin Cuthbert, who was brought up on the spot, but was unable to finish off the game in perhaps the best opportunity. Half.
In the second half, Chelsea finally broke the deadlock after Niamh Charles was brought down in the penalty area after 61 minutes of play. Ritten took the penalty kick and safely put it past Milen Chavas in Madrid's goal.
Seven minutes later, Madrid's substitute Athena Chelsea succeeded in breaking Chelsea's dominance and equalizing after goalkeeper Hannah Hampton blocked Hayley Raso's shot.
It then took Chelsea less than two minutes to regain the lead. Captain Cuthbert shot from an acute angle on the right flank, directly at Real Madrid goalkeeper Chavas, who fouled his own net. It will therefore remain in the statistics as an own goal, and not as Cuthbert's third Champions League goal.
Norwegian Maren Melde sat on the bench throughout the match, which was held at Stamford Bridge in London.
