Chelsea vs Real Madrid Predicted Lineups & Preview

In the past three European meetings with Real Madrid, Chelsea has lost twice (W1), both times in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League during the previous two seasons. Before this (W3 D2), they had won all five of their prior encounters with them.

Chelsea only suffered a home loss in the UEFA Champions League against Real Madrid in April 2022 (W7 D1). This occurred throughout the previous two seasons. In opposition against the Blues at Stamford Bridge, no team that travelled has ever won two Champions League matches. In the first leg of this tie, Chelsea was defeated 2-0 away at Real Madrid.

The Blues, however, have advanced from five of their past seven UEFA Champions League matches despite dropping the first leg on the road home, and they did so in each of the most recent two (vs. Napoli in 2011–12 and PSG in 2013–14), despite losing by a score of two goals or more.

Madrid has advanced from 18 of their 19 UEFA Champions League matches after winning the first leg by two goals or more, with just the quarterfinal matchup against Monaco in 2003-04 (4-2 first leg, 1-3 second leg, eliminated on away goals rule) serving as an exception. Despite losing the first leg to Dortmund, Chelsea advanced from their Champions League round of 16 matchups this season.

Only two teams have advanced to the semi-final after beating the last 16 since it was implemented in 2003–04 (Monaco in 2003-04 and Roma in 2017-18). Going into this feisty battle, Chelsea has a win probability of 35%, whereas Real Madrid has a win probability of 40%.
