Chelsea vs Real Madrid: A High-Stakes Clash in the Champions League
Frank Lampard leads Chelsea on their second game as interim boss in a crucial Champions League encounter against Real Madrid in Spain.
In the previous season, Real Madrid eliminated Chelsea in the quarter-finals en route to lifting the trophy. However, history suggests that Chelsea could turn the tables, having lost only one of their seven games against Real Madrid.
With qualifying for next season’s Champions League at stake, Chelsea is sure to put up a fight. Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti’s side is left with no choice but to win the competition to qualify for next season.
Real Madrid is fresh off a dominant 6-2 victory over Liverpool and goes into the game with immense confidence that they can put up a big lead at the Bernabeu before closing the game at Stamford Bridge.
- Real Madrid XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Camavinga, Kroos, Modric, Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr, Benzema.
- Chelsea XI: Kepa, Fofana, Silva, Koulibaly, James, Kante, Fernandez, Kovacic, Chilwell, Sterling, Felix
