Chelsea vs Real Madrid is the next second leg match in this year's UEFA Champions League as Chelsea face an uphill task traveling to Bernabeu with a two goal deficit against Real Madrid.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid: Match Preview:

A Karim Benzema hat-trick secured Los Blancos a 3-1 aggregate lead from the first leg at Stamford Bridge, although the absence of the away goals rule somewhat lessens that advantage compared to previous years.

Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea bounced back on the weekend with a demolition job against Southampton.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid cruised past Getafe at the Bernabeu - during which Gareth Bale was booed.

Real Madrid:

Real Madrid centre-back Eder Militao was fine to play the full 90 at the weekend despite coming off at Stamford Bridge, but the Brazilian will be watching from the naughty step this week as he serves a suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards.

Former Chelsea man Eden Hazard remains in the treatment room alongside Isco, but backup striker Luka Jovic has shaken off an ankle injury and centre-back Jesus Vallejo is absent after contracting COVID-19.

Ferland Mendy was rested at the weekend and should be fine to take Marcelo's place at left-back, while Nacho Fernandez should deputise for the suspended Militao, and Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are both refreshed after watching the win against Getafe from the substitutes' bench.


Chelsea have a similar number of fitness concerns to deal with ahead of the second leg, with long-term absentee Ben Chilwell definitely out alongside Callum Hudson-Odoi, who has suffered a setback in his recovery from an Achilles issue.

Romelu Lukaku also missed the win at Southampton with Achilles pain and will sit out the Bernabeu trip, but Cesar Azpilicueta has tested negative for COVID-19 and is set to make the journey. However, Ross Barkley is now sick himself and is absent.

Tuchel was able to bring Havertz, Mount and Thiago Silva off early at St Mary's, but Werner's brace may not be enough to see him retain his spot over Hakim Ziyech or Christian Pulisic.
