Chelsea will entertain Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge this Tuesday night as they focus on overturning a 2-0 deficit from the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal clash. The Blues suffered a 2-1 loss at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion recently which won’t do their confidence any good.
Frank Lampard will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and could be inclined to name a strong team for this game. Mateo Kovacic and Kai Havertz will play from the start for the West London club in this European clash.
4-2-3-1 Chelsea Predicted Lineup To Face Real Madrid
Kepa Arrizabalaga will feature in goal for the Blues after shipping in a couple of goals in his last appearance. Thiago Silva will play alongside Wesley Fofana at the centre of the Chelsea backline as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
Reece James will hope to give a good account of himself as the right-back while Marc Cucurella looks to catch the eye on the other flank as the left-back. Lampard will ask them to be more adventurous than usual as Chelsea are chasing this game.
Cesar Azpilicueta will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he offers cover for the defensive positions.
Enzo Fernandez will function alongside N’Golo Kante at the heart of Lampard’s midfield as they focus on winning the 50-50 battles at the centre of the park.
The talented trio of Mykhailo Mudryk, Mateo Kovacic and Joao Felix will play just ahead of them as part of Chelsea’s attack. Both Mudryk and Felix will try to use their pace to get in behind the Real Madrid backline at every chance they get.
Mason Mount will have to be content with a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the second half if needed.
Kai Havertz will lead the charge for Chelsea on the attacking end of the field. The German attacker has to find a way to cause a few headaches for the Real Madrid centre-backs in midweek.
Raheem Sterling will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages if Chelsea are in need of a goal by then.
