Real Madrid vs Chelsea live stream: How to watch Champions League quarter-final online and on TV

The Bernabeu hosts the second leg of the Champions League last eight tie

Chelsea must overturn a two-goal deficit as they travel to face Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side produced a strong performance at Stamford Bridge, taking a 3-1 away victory to assert their ascendancy in the tie.

With first-leg hat-trick scorer Karim Benzema in scintillating form and so much experience among a battle-hardened squad, Ancelotti will be confident that his side will avoid a major slip-up at the Bernabeu.

However Chelsea will hope that they are able to build upon the 6-0 weekend win over Southampton and battle back to keep their hopes of defending their Champions League crown alive.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the second leg.

Team news

Carlo Ancelotti gave some of his senior players a rest during the weekend win over Getafe, but Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Dani Carvajal should all be restored to a starting side likely to be similar to the one that began the first leg at Stamford Bridge. The Real Madrid manager will be forced into at least one change: Eder Militao’s booking last week rules him out through suspension, with Nacho Fernandez the likeliest beneficiary of Militao’s absence in central defence.

Ancelotti has confirmed that Eden Hazard will again be absent as he continues to recover from ankle surgery.

A double in the commanding win over Southampton has boosted Timo Werner’s hopes of a start if Thomas Tuchel seeks to tweak the balance of his Chelsea forward line. Romelu Lukaku missed the trip to the south coast with an injury, and is a doubt.

Cesar Azpilicueta has tested positive for Covid-19 and will require a negative test to take any part in the fixture.

Predicted line-ups

Real Madrid XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Nacho, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius.

Chelsea XI: Mendy; Chalobah, Silva, Rudiger; James, Kante, Kovacic, Alonso; Havertz, Werner, Mount.

Odds

Real Madrid win 19/13

Draw 13/5

Chelsea win 2/1

Prediction

Chelsea will be hopeful that they can get at the Real Madrid defence more readily than at Stamford Bridge, and should be able to give Carlo Ancelotti’s side a fright – but the home side are in a position of such strength and a semi-final berth should be theirs. Real Madrid 1-1 Chelsea (4-2 agg.)
