Champions League Bets & Preview:
Chelsea v Real Madrid
Chelsea face a monumental task as they attempt to overturn a two-goal deficit against Real Madrid in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie.
The London club’s recent form has been poor, with six winless competitive games, including a 2-1 loss to Brighton on the weekend that manager Frank Lampard described as “not a Chelsea performance”.
There are rumours that Todd Boehly has labelled the Chelsea squad as ’embarrassing’ in an hour-long rant aimed to motivate the players ahead of tonight’s UCL second-leg.
Nevertheless, Lampard can take inspiration from his predecessor Graham Potter, who oversaw Chelsea’s victory in the second leg of their Round of 16 game against Borussia Dortmund despite losing the first leg.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, go into the game in fine form and are expected to continue the first legs excellent display at the Bernabeu.
