Chelsea Aiming To End 12-game Streak Against English Clubs Against Real Madrid

Chelsea is going to try to end a 12-match run that’s been put together by Real Madrid when the two sides meet at the Bernabeu on Tuesday evening..

Real took control of the first leg of the Champions League quarter final at Stamford Bridge this week and won by a 3-1 scoreline thanks to Karim Benzema’s hat-trick.

Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea coach, has been outspoken about writing off his team’s chances and saying progress to the last 4 is “very unlikely.”

Statistics show that the Germans might have a point with Real, as they have never suffered a home defeat by more than a single goal against an English club in this tournament.

The Spanish giants haven’t conceded over two goals on those occasions, with that being Chelsea’s minimum requirement throughout the Bernabeu fixture.

The only time the Blues scored over two goals on away goals in a Champions League knockout match came in 2009 against Liverpool, with the West Londoners winning 3-1 on the occasion..
