Chelsea will entertain Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night as both teams hope to grind out a win in this UEFA Champions League quarterfinal first leg clash. The Blues suffered a surprise 4-1 loss at the hands of Brentford last weekend. In contrast, Los Blancos emerged victorious by a narrow 2-1 scoreline against Celta Vigo which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this European game.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid: Talking Tactics

Thomas Tuchel could opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation and will ask his players to pass the ball well and create some decent chances to hurt Real Madrid in this midweek game.

Carlo Ancelotti will set his men up in a 4-3-3 formation and might instruct his team to keep a solid shape at the back and try to catch the Chelsea defenders off-guard on the counter.

Both Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson Odoi will miss this game because of injuries. However, Reece James and Christian Pulisic will be available for selection in midweek.

Real Madrid

Eden Hazard will definitely miss this game due to injury. Furthermore, Luka Jovic is a major doubt for this game as he is still recovering from an ankle problem.

Real Madrid Predicted XI

Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Kroos, Casemiro, Modric; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius Junior

Key Men


The defensive performance of Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger and Reece James could go a long way in deciding the fate of this game. Kai Havertz will be given the responsibility to carry most of the goal-scoring burden for his side up top.

Real Madrid

Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior will be expected to cause a lot of problems for the Chelsea defenders on the counter. Both Eder Militao and David Alaba have to maintain a good defensive shape at the back if Los Blancos are to secure a win this Wednesday night.
