Chelsea vs Real Madrid live stream: match preview
Chelsea face an uphill task when they welcome Real Madrid to Stamford Bridge tonight.
Frank Lampard's return to his former club hasn't really gone to plan so far. After losing to Wolves and falling to a first-leg defeat at the Bernabeu last week, Brighton arrived at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and heaped more misery on Lampard's underperforming side. Despite falling behind to a deflected Connor Gallagher shot inside the first 15 minutes the Seagulls were better in every department, with Danny Welbeck heading the visitors level just before the break. Paraguayan teenager Julio Enciso secured all three points for Brighton with a spectacular strike from all of 30 yards to continue Lampard's winless return to west London.
It looks like a switch to a back five for Chelsea tonight, with Cucurella, Thiago Silva and James coming into the defence in place of Chilwell and Badiashile. Kovacic and Kante join Enzo Fernandez in midfield, while Havertz is preferred up top.
Real Madrid returned to winning ways when they beat Chelsea in the first leg of this tie and they continued that run with a 2-0 victory over Cadiz on Saturday. The La Liga strugglers held out for 72 minutes of the tie, but two goals in four minutes secured all three points for Real Madrid. Full-back Nacho opened the scoring with a wonderful long-range struck, before Marco Asensio doubled their lead from the edge of the box to ensure the victory. Real Madrid have only once failed to advance from a Champions League knockout tie when leading by two or more goals, and Chelsea have only netted once in their last five games, so it'll take something special here to prevent Carlo Ancelotti's side from booking their place in the semis.
There are also six changes to the side that won in Cadiz, with Vinicuis, Kroos, Modric, Camavinga, Carvajal, and Alaba coming in for Asensio, Ceballos, Tchouameni, Nacho, Rudiger and Vazquez.
Chelsea vs Real Madrid kicks off at 8pm BST / 3pm EDT today, Tuesday 18th April, at Stamford Bridge, London. Make sure you know how to watch a Chelsea vs Real Madrid live stream.
