This Tuesday night, in the Champions League, we see the second leg between Chelsea and Real Madrid take place at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea will need to be at their best to make a comeback, after losing 2-0 in the first leg to Champions League stalwarts.

First Leg At The Santiago Bernabeu

Last Wednesday we saw Real Madrid take the lead against Chelsea twenty-one minutes into the game, thanks to a tidy finish from world-class striker Karim Benzema.

Chelsea had a handful of chances in the first half but were unable to turn any of the chances into goals. Things went from bad to worse for Chelsea as Ben Chillwell saw red after bringing down Rodrygo in the 59th minute.

Carlo Ancelloti brought on Asensio in the 71st minute to try and get a second goal to take advantage the ten men of Chelsea. After three minutes on the pitch, he got on the scoresheet and made it 2-0 to the Spanish side. 

Real Madrid went on to close the game out and take the lead into the game at Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard’s side will need to bounce back and produce an outstanding performance at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night to turn this tie around.

Chelsea’s form

Chelsea are without a win in six games in all competitions. In their previous Premier League match, the Blues were unable to keep hold of their 1-0 lead against Brighton and went on to lose the game 1-2.

Chelsea are currently sitting 11th in the Premier League. After spending £323m in the January transfer window, some fans aren’t happy with the lack of success the team has had this season.

Real Madrid's form

In La Liga, Real Madrid are currently second in the league and are eleven points behind league leaders Barcelona. Real Madrid will be looking to continue their winning run after beating Cadiz 2-0 at the weekend.

Real Madrid’s talisman this season has been Karim Benzema, who has fourteen goals in La Liga so far this season. He will also be looking to add to his four Champions League goals at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

Crucial players

Arsenal’s key man this season is undoubtedly Bukayo Saka. The youngster has positively impacted Arsenal this season and contributed massively to their drastic improvement. Saka has twenty-two goal contributions this season in the Premier League, scoring twelve and assisting ten.

West Ham’s Premier League top goal scorer this season is Danny Ings. The Hammers signed Ings from Aston Villa in the January transfer window for £15m. Danny Ings has scored eight goals in the Premier League this season, but only two goals have come since he joined the Hammers. Ings will be looking to rekindle his form going into the last nine games of the season and will be looking to go through the remainder of the season with no more injury scares.

Newcastle's form under Eddie Howe

Since Eddie Howe arrived at the club in November 2021, Premier League fans have seen a drastic change in how Newcastle play. Eddie Howe took over when Newcastle were rock bottom of the Premier League, and he guided them to safety, finishing 11th in the league, 14 points above the relegation zone. Newcastle this season have impressed many people as no one would have expected them to be sitting in third and pushing for the Champions League places. Newcastle have won their last five Premier League games.
