UCL nights are back and this time, it is the battle of the giants. The battle between Carlo Ancelotti and Frank Lampard, the Battle between Vini Jr and Reece James, Benzema vs Thiago Silva, and so on. And as Real Madrid swiftly win over Chelsea with a 2-0 scoreline but there are still chances to make a comeback.
Though Real Madrid are the favorite to overcome the Blue side of London, things can change at any moment. There are injuries in both camps as some key faces will miss the trip to Stamford Bridge.
Vinicius Jr is doubtful for the clash, joining the lights of Havertz and Chilwell who might miss the clash from the blue side. But Real Madrid can capitalize on the inconsistent form of Chelsea.
From rapid managerial changes to a dip in forms, Chelsea is going through everything that you can imagine and elimination from UCL might amplify the pain. Under the watch of Frank Lampard, Chelsea failed to impress us and this is the stage for them to make a statement. Read More- Chelsea Is Struggling With Fitness Issues Ahead Of The UCL Clash
Chelsea is lately struggling for goals as they average just one goal every game and concede over one per game. In the last five games in the premier league, they managed three losses in their last five matches and drew twice.
The last time when these two teams faced last year, Madrid clutched their way to the semis with a 3-2 win. But this time, the stakes are even higher this time. Chelsea and Real Madrid faced each other three consecutive times and each manage to get the upper hand once. Mason Mount might miss the clash because of injury issues. Silva also returned to training but there is a question mark.
Predicted Line-up For Chelsea
Kepa; James, Fofana, Silva, Cucurella; E. Fernandez, Kante, Kovacic; Mudryk, Havertz, Felix.
Predicted Line-up For Real Madrid
Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Camavinga; Modric, Valverde, Kroos; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius Jr
A Draw (1-1) seems like the most probable outcome and an exit for Chelsea. With such a vulnerable state as Chelsea, they should focus on stability first, then aim for the big trophies. And Madrid will continue their quest of their 15th European crown.
