On Wednesday night, Chelsea hosts Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge for the opening leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie.



Chelsea defeated Real Madrid 3-1 on total goals in the semi-finals last season before defeating Manchester City in the final.



Can the Blues go one step farther in protecting their title? Or will Los Blancos avenge themselves this time?



Despite having 71 Percent control and 21 shots, Thomas Tuchel's team were defeated 4-1 at home by Brentford at the weekend.



Chelsea's six-game unbeaten run came to an end on Saturday. That should tell you whatever you could want to know about the defeat's surprising nature.



Tuchel's side only lost one of their six group games in the Champions League before defeating Lille 4-1 on aggregate in the round of 16.

Real Madrid, like Chelsea, only lost one of their six group games, winning five of them. In Group D, they also kept four clean sheets.



Los Blancos beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 on aggregate in the previous round thanks to a spectacular second-half hat-trick from Karim Benzema.



Benzema scored a brace in Real Madrid's 2-1 win against Celta Vigo at the weekend. They've now won five of their last six La Liga matches.



In this campaign, the French striker has 32 goals and 11 assists in 34 games across all tournaments, featuring eight goals in seven attempts in the UCL.



Carlo Ancelotti's squad leads La Liga by a large margin and appears to be on course to win the title before the conclusion of the season.



Chelsea and Real Madrid have met each other five times in their history. Los Blancos have yet to defeat the Blues, like it or not.
