Quarter-final: Chelsea vs Real Madrid
Venue: Stamford Bridge
Time: 7 pm (GMT)
Referee: Clement Turpin
Chelsea suffered a shocking collapse by Brentford last weekend which will undermine their form against Real Madrid.
Their first defeat at the hands of Brentford since 1939 has been a massive blow for the Blues adding up to the off-the-field issues linked up to the club’s new takeover.
Tuchel will hope his players fully focus on Wednesday’s fixture as they will face a stern test against 13-times winner Real Madrid.
Real Madrid returned to winning ways after Barcelona’s 4-0 hammering, where Benzema scored two of the three penalties.
Although the visitors will be without their boss, Carlo Ancelotti, who tested positive for Covid-19 and in his place, Ancelotti’s son and assistant Davide will be on the touchline.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid: Head-to-Head Prediction
Thomas Tuchel will want his players to compensate for the 4-1 defeat in a win against Real Madrid, and he will most likely get it.
Chelsea have a great depth and will also have home support that they can make the most of. But it remains to be seen how the players will bounce back from their 4-1 defeat.
We saw what Real Madrid did to PSG in the second leg, and Chelsea would not want that to happen; a small defensive error could be punished by Real’s evergreen Karim Benzema.
We predict a win for Chelsea in this fixture because of the well-experienced players at their disposal.
