Real Madrid secures a solid lead in the Champions League quarter-finals against Chelsea with a 2-0 win in the first leg. The match saw Karim Benzema’s early goal pave the way for Real, with Marco Asensio adding a second after Ben Chilwell was sent off for a cynical foul on Rodrygo. Despite Chelsea’s outside chance to stay in the tie, they’ll need to score at least twice in the second leg to keep their season alive. Real Madrid will face either Manchester City or Bayern Munich in the semi-finals. While Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly confidently predicted a 3-0 win for his side, it was an underwhelming performance from the English side who lacked confidence in front of goal. Lampard hopes that Stamford Bridge will be the venue for a special night, and he believes that it’s possible to turn this around. However, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti suggests that the quarter-final tie is not over yet, and his players understand that they have another 90 minutes to play.
