As a result of the proposed European Super League failure, UEFA will return to the Champions League on Tuesday when Chelsea face Real Madrid. This is the first phase of the semi-final of the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
The Blues are three games away from making success in 2008, but they face a tough test of progress at the expense of the league’s most decorated team.
Chelsea advanced to the quarter-finals after beating the Portuguese 2-1 in the quarter-finals.
They have since won the draw and won twice at home. The result included a win over Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final and West Ham United won 1-0 on Saturday.
Since last season’s trophy-free, the blues have created a tasty FA Cup final with Leicester. They can now double the national and European trophies if they succeed in the season’s remaining cup matches.
In the meantime, Real Madrid can fly in La Liga, but they have just been champions in the Champions League.
Zinedine Zidane’s men overtook Liverpool in the semi-finals and took a 3-1 overall victory to form a semi-final against Chelsea.
However, they will take part in Tuesday’s draw after La Beta made a quiet goalless draw against Real Betis and brought their last home game into focus.
Real Madrid are currently in a race with three horses to get the league budget, but soon it will redirect attention to the Champions League, where they are looking for record 14.
Real Madrid – Chelsea face to face
Real Madrid and Chelsea have only met three times in UEFA competitions. Chelsea have remained undefeated in these matches and demand two wins and a draw.
But before the international championship, Real Madrid and Chelsea met in 2013 and 2016, with Galacticos winning both times.
