Chelsea v Real Madrid Preview

Chelsea host Real Madrid in the second leg of the quarter final of the UEFA Champions League, following a 2-0 loss at the Bernabeu last mid-week. Goals by Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio put a dent in the Blues’ European aspirations as they face a nasty task of winning tonight by a margin of three goals or more. Chelsea have largely struggled for form since the start of the season. Winless in their last 6 matches, Frank Lampard’s men won’t be favored by the odds and predictions to overcome a 2 goal deficit against the reigning UCL champions. During this same period, Chelsea have scored on just two occasions, continuing their frustrating woes in front of goal. The 2-1 defeat to Brighton at the weekend would have been a huge blow to their confidence, conceding 26 shots and 10 shots on target in the match to the Seagulls. Sitting 11th in the Premier League table, Chelsea have only the Champions League to play for and having five of their last seven UCL ties in which they have lost away from home, they do have a ray hope.

Ahead of this trip to the Stamford Bridge – Carlo Ancelotti made several changes to his lineup against Cadiz in the LaLiga, resting his main men for the Chelsea fixture. 11 points behind FC Barcelona, the league looks like a difficult task now unless Xavi’s men slip up. Los Blancos have scored in each of their last eight games in all competitions and with the likes of Vinicius and Benzema firing all cylinders, Frank Lampard’s men will have a tough task ahead of them containing the Spanish side. Ancelotti’s men have progress on 18 out of 19 occasions when they have won the first leg by two goals or more in the Champions League. Their previous visit to the Stamford Bridge ended in a 1-3 victory for the visitors and should be confident of a positive result tonight as well.
