Chelsea lock horns with Real Madrid in the second-leg fixture of this highly-anticipated Champions League semi-final. The first leg witnessed a 1-1 draw and this game is open-ended for now. However, a goalless draw in this game would mean that Chelsea will qualify as they had scored 1 goal in their away fixture. Thus, Real Madrid will have to win this game for them to qualify. The match is slated to begin at 12:30 AM (IST).
Mateo Kovacic will be missing out on this game due to a hamstring injury.
Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez and Raphael Varane will be missing out on this game due to injuries.
Karim Benzema has been an absolute show-stopper for Real Madrid and has single-handedly won them games before. In the first leg of the semi-final too, Karim Benzema was the lone goal-scorer for Real Madrid. Real Madrid would be high on confidence as they are coming on the back off a win in the Spanish Liga. They had trounced Osasuna 2-0. Eder Militao and Casemiro had scored goals for Real Madrid.
Chelsea have a slight edge in this game as they had scored in their previous away leg fixture. Christian Pulisic had scored the goal for Chelsea and he can be a key player in this game. Chelsea are presently 4th in the Premier League table and they have a strong chance of finishing in the top four. They are also coming on the back off a 2-0 win over Everton and thus have a strong chance of winning this fixture against Real Madrid.
