Tuchel’s men were dominant in Spain, with five shots on goal, with Timo Werner missing an early opportunity to open the scoring.
After 14 minutes, Christian Pulisic made amends by circling the goalkeeper and separating the ball between two Real Madrid defenders on the line.
Despite their supremacy, Chelsea conceded after a brilliant moment from Karim Benzema.
And speaking after the game, Tuchel admitted his side should have scored more in the game.
He told BT Sport: “We started the game very very well, with a lot of courage and quality. We deserved to win the first half, we had chances. Unfortunately they scored from a set-piece and they had nothing else, we didn’t allow any chances.
“It was a disappointing score at half time. We had to stay calm and not lose confidence. The second half was very tactical, you could feel that we are a bit tired. We only had a few days to recover from another tough away game. We have to live with 1-1.
“The goal was well deserved and we should have scored at least one more. We conceded more or less out of nothing and that can always happen against individual quality.”
