Real Madrid will host Chelsea in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie at Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. The hosts defeated Liverpool 6-2 on aggregate in the last-16. while the Blues overcame a first-leg deficit to beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1. Meanwhile, both sides are heading into the match on the back of defeats in their respective league-fixture this weekend, with Los Blacnos losing 3-2 against Villarreal in the La Liga, while Chelsea suffered a narrow 1-0 Premier League-defeat away to Wolverhampton Wanderers. These two clubs played out a thrilling Champions League quarter-final tie last season, where the Spanish outfit went through with 5-3 aggregate win.

On Sunday, Carlo Ancelotti’s side took an early lead through Pau Torres’ own goal before Samuel Chunkwueze leveled the score with a 39th-minute effort. Three minutes into the second half, Vinicius Junior restored Los Blancos’ lead but Jose Morales’ 70th-minute equaliser and Chukwuenze’s second of the night ten minutes from time, handed Real Madrid their fifth league-defeat of the season. The result has left them trailing the Spanish top flight leaders Barcelona by 13 points. Nevertheless, the 14-time European champions have been brilliant in the Champions League thus far, roaring back from 2-0 down to thrash Liverpool 5-2 at Anfield in the first leg of their last-16 tie. And then, sealed their place in the last eight with a narrow 1-0 win in the second leg in Madrid. Meanwhile, Real Madrid are also set to take on Osasuna in the Copa del Rey final next month, having overcome a one goal deficit to defeat Barcelona 4-1 in the two-legged semi-final tie.

Chelsea, on the other hand, are going through a torrid time, having not tasted victory in their last four outings in the league. On Saturday, the Blues suffered their 11th English top flight defeat of the season against Wolves, courtesy of Matheus Nunes’ lone goal on the half-hour mark. The result has left them languishing at the 11th spot in the Premier League standings, having taken just 39 points from 30 games, 14 points adrift of the top five. Meanwhile, under the stewardship of Graham Potter, Chelsea defeated Dortmund 2-0 in the second leg of their last-16 tie and booked a place in the quarter-finals of Champions League. But the 47-year-old tactician was sacked few weeks ago, and Frank Lampard has been brought in for the second managerial baptism of fire. On a positive note, the 2022-23 season marks the third time in a row that the Blues have reached the last eight of Europe’s elite club football competition.
