Chelsea vs Real Madrid – Champions League: TV channel, team news, lineups & prediction


Real Madrid will travel to Chelsea on Tuesday as they seek to confirm their spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Los Blancos roared to a 2-0 lead in the first leg and will fancy their chances of avoiding a shocking collapse against a Chelsea side who have not won any of their last six games across all competitions – the second time this season they have been on such a run. Not since February 1995 have they made it to seven without victory.

Things haven’t been perfect for Real in recent weeks but they’ll be feeling very good after their recent 2-0 win over Cadiz, which was perhaps their best performance of 2023 and could have easily been more emphatic.

Here’s all you need to know about this one.

Chelsea team news

Ben Chilwell was sent off in the first leg and will be suspended for this one, joining injured centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly on the sidelines after the Senegal international pulled up in the first fixture.

Thiago Silva, N’Golo Kante, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Kai Havertz and Joao Felix all trained on Monday after being rested in the recent defeat to Brighton.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Benoit Badiashile, David Datro Fofana and Noni Madueke are not registered in Chelsea’s European squad.

(3-5-2): Kepa; Chalobah, Silva, Fofana; James, Kovacic, Fernandez, Kante, Cucurella; Havertz, Felix.

Real Madrid team news

It’s business as usual for Carlo Ancelotti, whose only absentee remains left-back Ferland Mendy. Despite Nacho Fernandez’s goalscoring showing at the weekend, expect Eduardo Camavinga to reclaim this spot.

Vinicius Junior and Toni Kroos were both rested against Cadiz but the duo should return here.

(4-3-3): Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Camavinga; Kroos, Modric, Valverde; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius.

Blues boss Frank Lampard insisted ‘special things can happen at Stamford Bridge’ after the first leg, but the level of ‘special’ needed to help his side here may never have been seen before.

This is the game for Chelsea, whose season depends on an unlikely run to Champions League for glory, but things could hardly be going worse for the Blues and it’s nearly impossible to see them getting something here. Brighton came to Stamford Bridge at the weekend and dominated, and Real Madrid will expect to do the same.

If Chelsea can win this, it’ll be one of the most famous results in European history, but in reality, anything other than an absolute pummelling would go down well with fans.

Prediction: Chelsea 0-3 Real Madrid
