Chelsea will believe they have what it takes to win this tie after an impressive display in the first leg. Not only did they create and waste several chances, they managed to strangle the Real Madrid attack and denied them opportunities to even make goal attempts. Chelsea’s defence have kept 4 clean sheets in their last 5 matches. Their performance in this game is crucial in keeping Real Madrid from getting the goals they need.
Chelsea will also take heart in the fact that their new coach Thomas Tuchel has never lost to Real Madrid after facing them 5 times (W1 D4). He will have almost a full squad available to choose from as he plots to reach the Champions League final for a second season running after last season with PSG.
Real Madrid come into this match knowing that they have to play much better than they did in the first leg. Their attack has been good throughout the season but in recent games they have faltered a bit, managing only 6 goals in their last 5 matches. Nevertheless, Los Blancos are unbeaten in the last 19 matches in all competitions and have only lost once in their last 10 UCL matches.
Madrid’s attack got a boost with the return to action of Chelsea’s former talisman Eden Hazard who showed flashes of his old self in their victory over Osasuna last weekend. Madrid will also be hoping that the likes of Benzema and Vinicius Jnr rise to the occasion like they have done many times before to get them the goals and victory that they need in this tie.
Possible Line Ups
|Injured: Kovacic (Hamstring), Rudiger (Muscle) and Ramos (Calf), Valverde (COVID-19), Mendy (Calf), Vazquez (Knee), Carvajal (Hamstring)|
Chelsea need a performance like the one from the first leg with just a little bit of clinical finishing to bury the chances they create. If they can stifle the Real Madrid attack like before, they have a good chance of making it through to the finals. The away goal may also come into play in Chelsea’s favor if the match is too tight and ends in a barren draw.
