Chelsea play host to Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge tonight (Wednesday) in the second leg of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League second semi-final.
The first leg, played last week at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, ended in a 1-1 draw, with Karim Benzema canceling out Christian Pulisic’s early strike.
The result gives the Premier League bigwigs the edge due to the away goal rule heading into Wednesday’s fixture and a goalless draw will be enough for Chelsea to cruise through to the finals.
So, the onus will be on the La Liga champions to take the game to their hosts and come out on top if they are to stay alive in the competition.
The winner will set up a date against Manchester City in Istanbul later this month.
Chelsea Vs Real Madrid Lineup
Chelsea XI (3-4-2-1): Mendy, Christensen, Silva, Rüdiger, Azpilicueta, Kanté, Jorginho, Chilwell, Mount, Werner, Havertz
Real Madrid XI (4-3-3): Courtois, Nacho, Militão, Ramos, Mendy, Modrić, Casemiro, Kroos, Hazard, Benzema, Júnior
