The white team knows that they have a great opportunity to return to another European Cup semi-final, and to do so, they must get a win or a draw at Stamford Bridge.

It will give them the advantage to face the second leg at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.

Real Madrid is also immersed in the fight for LaLiga Santander, where it has the lead in the standings, amid a battle with FC Barcelona, Atlético de Madrid, and Sevilla. 

The white team has a significant advantage, where it has 69 points in its favor, by 57 of the three pursuers, but the azulgranas with one game less and the particular goal average in their favor.

The white team comes from controversially beating Celta de Vigo by 1-2 in Balaídos, with three penalties in their favor and a goal disallowed for the Galician squad

Real Madrid beat PSG in the round of 16 by a total of 3-2 in their tie (1-0 in Paris and 3-1 in Madrid), which was sustained by a great comeback in the last 30 minutes of the 180 the tie.

A very close duel against Chelsea is expected where the details will make the difference.

Carlo Ancelotti has his hardcore experience of the resistance exercise that Real Madrid did against Paris Saint Germain.

Courtois in goal seems essential, and Karim Benzema's effectiveness in attack, Vinicius Junior's imbalance, and Modric and Toni Kroos' dominance in midfield.

Eden Hazard, ex-Chelsea, in principle, will not be available for the remainder of the season due to his injury.

Dani Carvajal, who rested against Celta de Vigo, should be available on the right side. Ferland Mendy has already returned to Vigo.

Tomas Tuchel's Chelsea, meanwhile, defends the title of champion of the UEFA Champions League.

It also bears the stamp of last season's semi-final tie, where it left a great image in Valdebebas and showed the winning side (1-1 in the first leg)

In the return leg, the 'blue' team was much superior and beat the team coached by Zidane at the time by 2-0.

Chelsea beat French LOSC Lille (4-1 on aggregate) in the round of 16 but is coming off a tough loss at Stamford Bridge to Brentford at home (1-4).
