Will Chelsea have another shot at the Champions League title after the 2011/12 title win or will it be the Los Blancos making a comeback for the trophy that they last lifted in the 2017/18 season. However, expect a stale low-scoring affair in ninety minutes as both teams will be set on a defensive strategy in the game.
Chelsea vs Real Madrid Match Preview
Even a goalless draw will take the Blues to the finals in the tournament. But Real Madrid will need a win here to reach closer to their 14th probable CL title in their history. Thomas Tuchel has steered the home team to a better form this season while Zinedine Zidane is struggling with injuries in the team.
The English Club will host on the back of a 2-0 win at home against Fulham in the Premier League. The win has kept them inside the top four spots on the table. In the meantime, the 2-0 win at home against Osasuna in the Spanish La Liga helped the Galacticos to the second spot on the league table.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid Prediction
Draw no bet: Chelsea: The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game and has been unbeaten in their last three home matches across all major competitions. Under Thomas Tuchel, the Blues have been very promising for the title this season and the away goal in the first leg will give them a breathing space during the second leg at London.
In addition to that, Real Madrid suffers from injuries throughout the season and has notched down their attacking a bit. Thus, the draw no bet over Chelsea will probably be the best bet for the punters considering either a draw or a narrow 1-0 win for the home team in full-time.
Half-time result: Draw: It is clear from the first leg that the clash between these two sides will size into a low-scoring affair in London too. The Blues had more goal attempts and shots on target in the first leg clash than the Spanish contingents.
Real Madrid, despite their troubles, has conceded very few goals in La Liga and Champions League this season. They are defensively strong and Tuchel’s boys will have a hard time getting past them for the second time. So, we can expect the first half to probably finish in an exciting draw in the fixture.
