The defending Champion and two times UCL winners, Chelsea, will host Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge for the first leg of the quarter-finals. It is promising to be a great matchup between the semi-finalists of the last UCL season.

In the last season of the UEFA Champions League, Thomas Tuchel’s side defeated the 13 times UCL winners Real Madrid by 3-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals, proceeding to lift the title. The Spanish giant will visit Stamford Bridge on Wednesday to play this year’s quarter-final tie to take revenge on Chelsea.

Vinicius Junior is a dangerous player up the left wing who can do serious damage entering the opponent’s box.
