Chelsea v Real Madrid Predictions
Off the field distractions finally caught up with Chelsea who lost 4-1 at home to newly-promoted Brentford at the weekend. It was quite a shocking performance from the reigning European champions. Safe to say that this result was not the best display ahead of Real Madrid’s visit.
However, that defeat should be treated as a one off because the Blues have been pretty good in recent months. Before losing out to the Bees, the London giants were on a six game unbeaten run across all competitions.
Champions League is a different ball game altogether and Thomas Tuchel would be eager to see his team continue play well in Europe, the way they have been for most part of the campaign.
Real Madrid on the other hand, would be out for revenge after losing to Chelsea in the same competition last year. They lost 2-0 at Stamford Bridge last time out but things have changed a lot since then.
While a 4-0 thrashing at home to Barcelona must have hurt, Carlo Ancelotti’s men are one of the most experienced sides in the competition and that has to count for something.
