Real Madrid takes on Chelsea on the 7th of April in the Champions League quarter-finals. Both teams will be looking for a win to move further in the competition.
Real Madrid have been in good form this season. Topping the La Liga after 30 games with a considerable lead over second-placed Barcelona. Real Madrid have had a good run of games barring that shocking loss to Barcelona in the El Classico where they lost by a margin of 4 goals. Real Madrid will be hoping to take revenge against Chelsea in the quarter-finals. Previously, Chelsea knocked out Madrid last season in the semi-finals and went on to clinch the title. They will be looking to change their fortunes. With Karim Benzema in the form of his life, Real are going into the tie in a positive fashion.
Chelsea’s quite recent loss to Brentford has shocked fans and supporters. Brentford broke their 6 games unbeaten run in all competition with a 4:1 win. Chelsea look disarrayed during that loss which is not a good omen as they head into the quarter-finals to face Real Madrid. Chelsea has been in good form this year with a couple of exceptions here and there. But they have to be on their toes as they face Madrid and have to be wary of the Frenchman Karim Benzema and the threat he exhumes. Chelsea are going into the quarter-finals and have to quickly get their game plan together or else they are heading into a complete smacking.
