 Match Preview


Real Madrid vs Chelsea preview, Looking to spark a phenomenal turnaround against this season's Champions League comeback king, Chelsea visit the Bernabeu for the second leg of their European quarter-final on Tuesday night.
The reigning champions head to the Spanish capital after a 3-1 first-leg sinking at Stamford Bridge, with one of France's most famous players doing the damage on the night.
There are not enough superlatives in the dictionary to describe Real Madrid's number nine Karim Benzema, who played as a substitute for Cristiano Ronaldo for so long at the Bernabeu but is now stealing the spotlight as Los Blancos seek domestic and continental glory.
As if one hat-trick to knock Paris Saint-Germain out of the competition wasn't enough, Benzema made a successive European treble with a superb display at Stamford Bridge – scoring two confident early headers from the experienced midfielder-forward that he before bringing home the match ball after Edouard Mendy's usual error.
Carlo Ancelotti's men have one foot solid in the semi-finals of this year's competition and also ensured they maintained their double-digit lead over the chasing group in La Liga with a straight 2-0 win over Getafe – their eighth win in nine games overall. competition.
Los Blancos have certainly proved that a 4-0 El Clasico at the hands of Barcelona is nothing more than an outlier, and only once in their previous 10 occasions have they failed to qualify in the Champions League when they won the first leg away. – Ajax are still ringing bitter bells for some Bernabeu supporters.
A second successive semi-final appearance is now upon Real Madrid's eyes, and they have scored at least two goals in each of their last three Champions League wins at home, but Chelsea managed to respond with a goal-laden display of their own. on the South Coast.
Their crown defense appeared to be in tatters after such a devastating first-leg loss, but Kai Havertz's header at least gave Chelsea some hope, with the German coming in big game for the Blues once again.
Desperately in need of a response to home defeats to Los Blancos and Brentford, Tuchel got the reaction he had hoped for against Southampton, whose error-ridden form ended in 6-0 wins at the hands of Mason Mount (2), Timo Werner (2), Marcos Alonso and Havertz, and the only consolation that Southampton supporters can take from that 6-0 loss is that it doesn't end up being a nine.
Tuchel could hardly have asked for a better warm-up for the trip to the Bernabeu, where they will have to pull off a feat no English side has done before if they are to stay alive in the competition – winning at home by at least two goals.
Despite their recent collapse at Stamford Bridge, the demolition work at St Mary's represented Chelsea's seventh win away in all competitions, and they have only failed to score in any of their last 15 Champions League games in which they have been referred to as an away side.
Victory over the Blues at Stamford Bridge saw Real Madrid end a five-game winless run against the London club in European competition, and the pressure is now on Ancelotti's men to avoid the suffering they inflicted on PSG just weeks ago.
Real Madrid centre-back Eder Militao was fine to play the full 90 at the weekend despite being fielded at Stamford Bridge, but the Brazilian will be watching from a mischievous move this week as he serves a suspension for yellow card accumulation.
Former Chelsea man Eden Hazard remains in the treatment room alongside substitute striker Luka Jovic, while Isco is still a bit unsure with a back problem but will likely never start here.
