Who will come out on top and move one step closer to lifting the coveted Champions League trophy? Only time will tell as these two giants of European football go head-to-head in a match that promises to be a spectacle for the ages.
Real Madrid is currently second to FC Barcelona in the La Liga table. Despite defeating FC Barcelona in the semi-finals of the Copa Del Rey with an incredible comeback in the second leg with a scoreline of 4-0, they lost their next game against Villarreal in La Liga which again increased the disparity between number one and number two spot in La Liga.
This is the typical Madrid trait where they lose the game at the domestic level before a knockout game and they go on to win the knockout competitions in style. For example, before playing Barca in the second leg of Copa Del Ray they lost a game but they went on to win the game in the most fanciest way.
On the other hand, Chelsea has been struggling to find their foot since the departure of their Russian owner. The new owner has splashed money in the transfer market but that hasn't been working really well for the London club.
Chelsea is out of the title race and both the domestic knockout competitions, the only hope for them this season is the Champions League. We dig deep into the dynamics of both teams before this ever-enthralling clash.
Real Madrid will miss the services of the injured Ferland Mendy which means we will see Camavinga shifting into that position again. Apart from that Ancelotti who rested the midfield duo of Kroos and Modric against Vilarieal will be back in the squad. The young Uruguayan midfielder is also available for selection.
On the contrary, Chelsea is wounded with injuries. Armando Borja, Thiago Silva, and Mason Mount are out with injuries. Even Chelsea's captain Cesar Azipelcueta will be missed of injuries.
Real Madrid and Chelsea have faced each other only four times in the Champions League. In this duel, Chelsea has the upper hand with 2 wins. One game ended in a draw and the rest is won by Los Blancos.
The fourteen-times champions league winners Real Madrid will look to add fifth to their cabinet and Chelsea will look to rejuvenate this season by giving their best in the Champions League. The prediction for this game is 3-0 in favor of Real Madrid.
