Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid defeated Chelsea convincingly by 3-1 goals at the Stamford Bridge last week in the 1st-leg clash. The defending champions will visit Madrid for the 2nd-leg of the tie.

The French goal-machine Karim Benzema scored a superb hat-trick for the visiting side to lead them by 3-1 goals. It was the second consecutive hat-trick for Madrid’s number 9 in the UCL knockout stages.

Kai Havertz got a consolation goal for Chelsea in front of the home crowd, keeping their hopes alive to proceed to the semi-finals. The English side must overcome a towering task to beat Madrid by 2 goals. As no Away Goals rule in the UCL this season, Chelsea must score 2 goals without conceding to push the match into extra time.

Real Madrid reached the quarter-finals after a great comeback against PSG. They were behind by 0-2 goals into the 2nd-leg, where the Benzema hat-trick turned the match on its head, winning it by 3-2 goals on aggregate. The Spanish giant will seek to fulfill their revenge on Chelsea for their defeat in the semi-finals last season.

The Blues will visit Madrid, coming out fresh from a 6-0 win against Southampton in the EPL. This big win in the EPL will boost their confidence in facing Real Madrid in the 2nd-leg.

The defending champions Chelsea will not let it go easily against the La Liga topper, promising to be a mouth-watering clash on Tuesday in the Santiago Bernabeu.

Head to Head

Real Madrid and Chelsea met head-to-head in the Semi-Finals of the last season in this competition. Chelsea defeated Real Madrid by 3-1 goals on aggregate.

The 3-1 win in the 1st-leg is the first win for Real Madrid against Chelsea in the last 6 encounters across European competitions – W1, D2, and L3.

Key Players

Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior will be the crucial duo for Madrid in the attack.

Benzema has scored two consecutive hat-tricks in the last two UCL clashes. He is now the 2nd highest scorer of the UCL this season with 11 goals, one goal shy of Robert Lewandowski, who will play the 2nd-leg battle of Bayern Munich vs Villarreal the same night.

Vinicius Junior has now 5 assists in the UCL this season, the latest one against Chelsea in the 1st-leg. This Brazilian winger can be a great threat with his pace up the left flank.

The eyes will be on Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic for the English side. Kai Havertz scored a goal in the 1st-leg of this tie. He was also on the scoresheet in their 6-0 win against Southampton in the EPL. Christian Pulisic should be a crucial player for Chelsea in the attack. This American striker scored a goal in each leg against Lille in the Round of 16.

Injury Update

Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard and Isco will be unavailable for Real Madrid in this match. Eder Militao will be unavailable in the heart of Madrid’s defense due to a Yellow Card suspension. Ferland Mendy should return to claim the left-back position.

Real Madrid vs. Chelsea Prediction

Real Madrid has one foot into the semi-finals, facing Chelsea with a 3-1 goals advantage at home. It will be a mammoth task for Chelsea to beat an in-form Madrid side by scoring 2 goals.

The 3-1 win against PSG proves that Real Madrid is a stronger team on the home ground. Real Madrid should qualify for the semi-finals with a win in the 2nd-leg.

Prediction: Real Madrid 2-1 Chelsea in the 2nd-leg.
