This match is scheduled to take place at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium. The top winner of the competition with 14 Champions Leagues, comes from eliminating Liverpool in the round of 16 with an overall result of 6-2. Regarding the group stage, those led by Carlo Ancelotti were the leaders of zone F, obtaining 13 points, 4 wins, a draw and a loss against Leipzig.

However, Chelsea does not arrive at its best for this game. The English added a new defeat in the Premier League, this time against Wolves, and are located in eleventh position in the table, so their only option to play in the Champions League next season is to win this edition. And it is that the Stamford Bridge team is having a terrible campaign with changes of coaches and multimillion-dollar investments that have not finished bearing fruit.

For its part, Real Madrid lives two very different realities, as Los Blancos disconnected a long time ago and has allowed itself to go, adding a defeat against Villarreal that could leave it 15 points behind the leaders in the Spanish League. But in the Copa del Rey, Real was able to come back and thrash FC Barcelona, and in the Champions League tie against Liverpool, 14-time UCL winners showed why they are the current European champion.

Chelsea, now with Frank Lampard on the bench, have four injured to face this game. Forward Armando Broja will miss the remainder of the season with a cruciate injury, Mason Mount suffers a pelvic contusion, Thiago Silva tore his ligaments in February, and Raheeem Sterling has been injured since March for discomfort in the thigh.
