Chelsea are set to host Real Madrid on Wednesday in a Champions League quarterfinal matchup with the first leg set for Stamford Bridge under the lights in London. The match is streaming live on CBS and Paramount+. It’s a rematch of the semifinals from last season, when Chelsea advanced and ended up winning the title. But this Real team looks like a stronger one after having bounced star-studded PSG in the round of 16.

Here’s our storylines, how you can watch the match and more:

Storylines

Chelsea: The Blues enter this match healthy aside from Ben Chilwell’s knee ligament rupture, which will keep him out until the summer. Other than that, there aren’t really any concerns. But do keep an eye on Christian Pulisic, who scored in their semifinal first leg last season. He’s coming off significant minutes with the United States men’s national team, and it would be a tad surprising to see him start here.

Real: Eden Hazard remains out with a fibula injury, while Isco is nearing his return from back trouble. The big question is whether manager Carlo Ancelotti will be in England. Set to face his former squad, the Italian tested positive for COVID-19. As of Tuesday, he wasn’t set to travel for the game, but that could change if he tests negative before the trip. If he can’t go, Davide Ancelotti and Abian Perdomo will be in charge.

Prediction

Karim Benzema’s goal in the second half puts Los Blancos in the driver’s seat. Pick: Chelsea 1, Real Madrid 1
