Chelsea will need a miracle to progress to the Champions League semi-finals, as they host Real Madrid tonight at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are currently down 2-0 on aggregate after losing to the Spanish giants last week, with goals from Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio putting Real in complete control of the quarter-final tie.
The London-based side have lost all three of their matches since the return of club legend Frank Lampard to the dugout, and his impact on the team’s struggles has been minimal at best.
Despite the return of key players such as N’Golo Kante and Thiago Silva, Chelsea’s starting lineup for tonight’s match is surprisingly cautious, with attacking options like Joao Felix, Raheem Sterling, and Mykhailo Mudryk relegated to the bench.
Real Madrid, who cruised past Liverpool in the last-16, are in pole position to knock out another English team tonight, with a likely semi-final matchup against Manchester City on the horizon.
