A third Champions League final is at least 90 minutes away for Chelsea if they can beat Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have the away goal advantage after the first leg finished 1-1 in Madrid but they will face a tough match as Zinedine Zidane looks to add his fourth Champions League trophy to his CV.
However, Madrid are winless in their last four away games against English sides in the Champions League – drawing twice and losing twice as well as scoring only two goals across the four matches since they beat Liverpool back in October 2014 3-0.
This will be the fifth time Chelsea face the Spanish giants and have an impressive unbeaten record to go with it – winning twice and drawing twice.

Kai Havertz’s double brace against Fulham last weekend is showing that at least one of the German attackers are showing their ability on the Premier League scene at least.
Tuchel’s decision to move Havertz into a more centre-forward role has reaped rewards with fantastic link-up play and a few goals too.
A similar set-up and display could see Havertz, who is 5/2 to score anytime, really show he has settled in to life at Stamford Bridge/
Since Tuchel arrived at Chelsea, their defence has been formidable after the German completely transformed the side around.
But despite this, Zidane’s side have already managed to get a goal against a side with 17 clean sheets under their new coach and have the capabilities to do it again.
With the likes of Karim Benzema leading the attack, it will be impressive if Edouard Mendy keeps a clean sheet tonight.
