Los Blancos hold the advantage after their surprising 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge last week, with superstar striker Karim Benzema producing his second hat trick in his last two UCL games. A one-goal loss or better will be enough for Real to return to the semifinals, while the reigning champs must win by two goals just to force extra time.

Storylines

Real Madrid: Former Chelsea man Eden Hazard remains out due to the fissure of the fibula. But the big absence is that of centerback Eder Militao. He picked up a yellow in the first leg, resulting in a card accumulation suspension. As a result, expect to see Nacho next to David Alaba.

Chelsea: Once again, the Blues are fit aside from Ben Chilwell’s long-term absence due to a ruptured cruciate ligament. The big decision looming for Thomas Tuchel is how to set up his team in attack. They have barely used Romelu Lukaku as of late, and he won’t even be an option as he misses out due to injury. So they will lack size up front, as usual, and while it will be an attacking lineup, we will have to see just how attacking. The expectation would be for Kai Havertz to start and lead that frontline. America Christian Pulisic is also one to watch after he scored at Real last season in the semifinals.
