Real Madrid vs Chelsea: Team news & key stats

For Real Madrid, cental defender Eder Militao is suspended. Eden Hazard continues to be sidelined along with Luka Jovic. Isco is also a doubt on account of back problems.

Meanwhile, Ancelotti has kept the likes of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Ferland Mendy fresh as the trio watched the Getafe win from the stands.

Chelsea will definitely miss Ben Chilwell who is out for long term. An Achilles' injury keeps Callum Hudson-Odoi out of contension while Romelu Lukaku is also a doubt. Cesar Azpilicueta, recovering from COVID-19, is not expected to feature.

Tuchel kept Kai Havertz, Mount and Thiago Silva fresh, taking them off early in the Southampton thrashing.

Key Stats:

  • Real Madrid’s 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge was their first victory against Chelsea in European competition, having drawn two and lost three of their first five such meetings. The last side to win both legs against Chelsea in a UEFA Champions League knockout tie was Bayern Munich in the Round of 16 in 2019-20.
  • This will be Chelsea’s first ever game at the Santiago Bernabeu in European competition, with last season’s away game at Real Madrid being played at the Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium. No English side has ever won at the Santiago Bernabeu in the UEFA Champions League by more than a single goal, with Real Madrid only losing three of the 12 games overall (W6 D3).
  • In Thomas Tuchel’s 16 games in charge of Chelsea in the competition, 40% of the goals that they have conceded in the UEFA Champions League (4/10) have been scored by Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema. Despite only having played one leg, this is already the most goals Chelsea have conceded in a knockout tie in the competition under Tuchel (3).
  • Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is looking to qualify for the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League for the eighth time in his career; the joint-most by a coach in the competition’s history, along with Pep Guardiola and José Mourinho (eight times).
  • Karim Benzema has scored 11 goals for Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League this season, already the most by a French player in a single campaign in European Cup/UEFA Champions League history. His 11 goals this season is as many as he had scored in the previous two editions of the tournament combined (six in 2020-21 and five in 2019-20).
