UCL: Time running out for wasteful Werner to prove his worth

Chelsea welcome Real Madrid to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday still with much to do to reach the Champions League final after failing to land the killer blow when the 13-time European champions were on the ropes in last week’s first leg.
A 1-1 draw in the Spanish capital still gives the Blues the upper hand thanks to their away goal, but Thomas Tuchel’s men could have had a much more convincing advantage but for a tale of two strikers.
In a story of his first season at Chelsea, Timo Werner missed a glorious chance to put his side in front early as the outstretched leg of Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois denied his old club.
That miss even provoked criticism from the wife of Werner’s teammate Thiago Silva.
“Every team I go to there is a striker who keeps missing goals,” Isabelle da Silva posted in a since deleted Instagram message.
