Chelsea will be looking for a miraculous turnaround at the Santiago Bernabeu as they aim to overturn a two-goal deficit against a solid Real Madrid side. The Blues suffered a 3-1 defeat in the first-leg at Stamford Bridge which was not helped by their relatively inconsistent form beforehand but after the weekend, they have a slight chance.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are 13/8 with Betfred to get a win at Madrid while the hosts are the slight favourites at 8/5. A win will not be enough for Chelsea to go through – they will need to win by at least three goals to progress to the next round and they are 4/1 to score over 2.5 goals in this match while a two-goal winning margin would put them into extra-time but the bookies have already priced Carlo Ancelotti’s side as 1/10 heavy favourites to progress to the next round already.

Tuchel’s side have responded well after last week’s defeat at home with an impressive 6-0 win away at St Mary’s Stadium against Southampton. The mid-table side suffered to the hands of Time and Mason Mount – who both scored braces during the weekend’s Premier League fixtures.

Lukaku did make an appearance from the bench in the first leg against Real but, with his side two goals down and in desperate need of inspiration, he missed a glorious chance just minutes after coming on, a scene that perfectly summed up how his return to the club he supported as a teenager has gone sideways.

Team stats
Both teams in matches involving Chelsea have scored in 24 matches from 52 this season in all competitions including three from nine in the Champions League. For Real Madrid, both teams scored in 23 matches from 45 in all competitions including four times in the Champions League. Both teams to score is 8/13.

Chelsea have finished 25 matches in all competitions this season with three or more total goals including five in the Champions League while for Real Madrid it is 28 in all competitions and six in Europe. Over 2.5 goals is 7/2.

Players to watch
Timo Werner was a man possessed against Southampton at the weekend with two goals to his name at St Marys as the Blues secured a league double over the Saints at the weekend.

But you cannot look any further than Karim Benzema after his displays at Stamford Bridge last week. His Champions League hat-trick in the first leg puts him three behind Robert Lewandowski in the all-time top scorer list in Europe’s top club competition.

The Frenchman has certainly made his mark this season with 37 goals in all competitions, making it his best season not only for Real Madrid after 13 seasons but in his entire career. He has equalled his best La Liga tally of 24 goals with seven matches to go and has smashed his Champions League record of seven back in 2011/12 with 11 this season.

Lukaku will now be deprived of the chance to make amends for that miss in the second leg and will instead be forced to watch from the sidelines, where he may contemplate where things have gone wrong for him this season, why Havertz has been able to succeed where he has failed, and whether his return to west London was in fact doomed from the start.
