Real Madrid will entertain Chelsea at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium this Wednesday night as both sides look to go all out in search of the win. Los Blancos suffered a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Villarreal recently. Similarly, the Blues were narrowly edged out by Wolverhampton Wanderers by a 1-0 scoreline. Hence, we can expect both teams to be eager to get back to winning ways in this midweek UEFA Champions League clash.

Real Madrid Vs Chelsea: Tactical Preview

Carlo Ancelotti will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and might instruct his men to dominate the ball and engineer enough clear-cut chances to win this contest.

Chelsea’s interim manager, Frank Lampard will opt for a 4-3-3 formation as well and could ask his men to defend their penalty box well and try to cause problems for the opposition defenders on the counter.

Ferland Mendy is unlikely to be ready in time for this game as he is still recovering from a calf problem. Otherwise, Ancelotti has no fresh injury concerns to cope with in midweek.

Key Men

Real Madrid

Karim Benzema will be Ancelotti’s best hope for a goal this Wednesday night. The Frenchman would be eager to get his name on the scoresheet versus the Blues after shooting blanks last weekend.

The performance of Luka Modric and Toni Kross at the centre of Real Madrid’s midfield could go a long way in determining the fate of this match.


Kepa Arrizabalaga has to find a way to make some important saves at the back if Chelsea are to stand a chance of securing a result away at the Bernabeu.

Both Enzo Fernandez and Mateo Kovacic has to find a way to dictate the tempo of the game at the centre of the park.
