Following an enthralling and rain-soaked first leg in the Spanish capital, Chelsea prepare to welcome Real Madrid to Stamford Bridge for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final battle on Wednesday night.
The tie is delicately poised following a 1-1 draw at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano last week, during which Christian Pulisic’s opener was cancelled out by an equally impressive Karim Benzema finish.
Both European powerhouses enjoyed 2-0 victories in league action at the weekend, as Chelsea overcame Fulham while Los Blancos comfortably swept aside Osasuna.
