It’s a really difficult draw for Chelsea with Real Madrid showing last time out against Liverpool how well they play on the biggest stage. Los Blancos have won the European trophy a record 14 times and are one of the favourites to make it 15 this term.
When Chelsea went head-to-head with the Madrid-based outfit last season, the first-leg was won 3-1 by the visitors at Stamford Bridge with Karim Benzema netting a superb hat-trick in London.
The Blues actually won the second leg at the Bernabeu with Mason Mount, Antonio Rudiger and Timo Werner scoring, but still lost 5-4 on aggregate after Benzema’s extra-time winner for the Spanish side.
