Can Chelsea survive Real Madrid scare in the UEFA Champions League?
The stage is set for one of the biggest matches in the history of the European competition as fireworks beckons at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
It promises to be night of glory as far as the match is concerned. But would there be any form of twist (surprise) as Real Madrid have a 2-0 lead going into this match.
It remains to be seen if the pride of London (Chelsea) will arise and come to the party. There is a bit of distraction from the camp of both sides with respect to the Coaching position.
Frank Lampard is on the job on an interim basis and talks are ongoing as regards to who takes over at Chelsea in view of the club’s preference for former Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagglesmann .
Whereas there are reports linking Carlo Ancelotti to the vacant Brazil Coaching job at the end of the season.
However, it may be, these side talks should not deter the quality we expect to see from both sides on the pitch irrespective of who wins this match.
While Frank Lampard has stated that he’s got no problem with Chelsea owner coming to the dressing room to meet with the players prior to this match.
The Chelsea team needs motivation for all we can see as they look very uninspiring in their tepid display at the Bernabeu Stadium last Wednesday.
If they are going to make this game count they must be ready to dig deep in the match. The fact the players still need to be inspired for a game of this magnitude is a statement of how bad things have gone at the club.
May be that’s why Chelsea owner is trying to visit the dressing room to inspire the players who are obviously looking disillusioned from their approach in a game.
Would Boedly be able to lighten up the players like a candle in this fixture? Time will tell as Real Madrid comes visiting on this occasion.
The Blues would be needing a miracle to surmount the challenge Real Madrid would be bringing into this match.
Come to think of the presence of the experienced Luka Modric in the midfield. However, the Blues are not lacking in quality.
They just need to find their rhythm with the players coming to terms that it’s just only a two goal deficit. If they can get that, an extra time could precede after with a possible penalty.
The likes of Joao Felix, Raheem Sterling should offer hopes to the Chelsea side while Mateo Kovacic slugs it out with Luka Modric in the battle of supremacy in midfield.
Overall the Blues can do the unlikely as we relate their form to the quality we know they can produce on the pitch.
But Chelsea would be hoping that Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior do not have a great game while Chelsea must do more defensively in view of the returning Reece James that faltered in the first match.
Lampard have a task to do in presenting a decent Chelsea side in this match.
While Real Madrid must be cautious of the home side knowing Chelsea would have their home fans amid the Stamford Bridge atmosphere solidly backing them althrough the 90 minute contest.
