This is genuinely the hardest match to call. On one side you have Chelsea that have proven they’re an incredibly tough side to crack and they can take on big clubs and win, but on the other side you have Real Madrid that always find a way to make it out no matter how bad the situation is. It’s an unstoppable force against an immovable object.
Chelsea not scoring many goals but defensively a monster, they are capable of keeping a clean sheet so they are slightly favourites

Regardless of the favorable odds by the bookies, Chelsea should never ever underestimate Real. It will be the biggest challenge for Chelsea for the year. Keep my fingers crossed while biting my nails.

klinsmann what a legend

Klinsmann knows what's up
If Mendy and Valverde are fit and can start, then we have a chance.

King Tshilobo:
If our attack can convert those chances we create, we can win this game. Our defense and midfield is strong. Werner needs to wake up and be clinical. I believe in Mount and Pulisic
As a Real Madrid fan I’m very happy that the ESPN pundits picked Chelsea to go through. 😁🙏

The fact that they barely talk about kante is beyond me .... man of the match last week

If Chelsea lose it's still an accomplishment for me. From where they were with Frank Lampard I say they done a good job. Still top 4 & they in the FA cup final too. Next season they will be fire...

CheLFa K. Malik:
C'mon on CHELSEA 💪🏻👊🏻🔥💙
Tbh why are we so underestimating the English side so much?
Chelsea never got the credit since the Semi Final Draw.
It will be a F to all other league fans who don't want English finals.
It can happen this year too in Europa too.
Samuel Gonzalez-Tovar
Samuel Gonzalez-Tovar:
At this point just play timo as a midfielder better with the assist than scoring
If chelsea play the way they did at rm home then they go through, but they also need werner to pull off a Torres and finally score when it matters

Chelsea are winning champions league.mark my words

Chelsea were the underdog still we out played you guys in Madrid....... remember 2012? We were under-rated,we loved been underrated so don’t be mad espn pick Chelsea we deserve all the praise,but mind you we prove it again tonight because we got an intelligent manager

As a Chelsea fan I am still dancing on top of the roof of my house after the massive hammering of Real Madrid. Walitudharau, aha aha aha, whose laughing now!
Hayagrivas Bharath
Hayagrivas Bharath:
I feel these guys are building up real Madrid too much like they always comeback, they are great. Being a Madrid fan, this sounds great but these guys are talking about the Madrid with Cristiano. Madrid without him has too much variables, even if the goals will come or not is a variable.

I feel its very hard. We need to try, though we are not favorites, let's have faith. Hala Madrid
Hala Madrid!!!! Real Madrid getting healthy at the right time, Capitan is back as is Ferland Mendy and Valverde.
Just the talk of who will progress means Chelsea is favorite. Under Lampard, no one backs Chelsea to beat Real Madrid.
Athul TM
Athul TM:
Not trying to be toxic, but still wanna laugh at the guys who said "Real Madrid will destroy Chelsea"
They literally got destroyed (mostly) by Kante single handedly, again 😂
Aaron Wati
Aaron Wati:
Obviously giroud on for Werner. Big game goal machine.

I was surprised we didn’t start him last match would’ve been perfect
Chelsea4Life 23
Chelsea4Life 23:
I just want to think we will go through, but it’s Real Madrid. I think with Ramos we will struggle, especially Timo. So I’m predicting Real 1-0 Chelsea. Unfortunately
When tuchel came to Chelsea I was very skeptical about what he going to do but right now i think it's possible and just bravo 👏🏿 gór him

The game Chelsea lost to Porto wasn't at Stamford Bridge but yes it was considered a home game. Both legs were played in Seville. What's wrong with Craig🤔
T Spot
T Spot:
Werner? 3 goals, 34 games, since 11/21/20, second most minutes on the team.
This isn't U-8.
Patrick Onwujekwe
Patrick Onwujekwe:
Real now have a full strength squad. So, it's advantage Real
Chelsea are the favorites to go to the finals but jokers who believe that because they’ve played great in the first half of the last leg guarantees they will do so again tomorrow haven’t watched enough football. If Chelsea qualifies tomorrow they’d have to earn it.
The babayaga
The babayaga:
Lol 🤣 blue one getting kicked and dumped into the ocean 🌊 that would be fun to watch , and Ramos is hungry hope they are aware and hope they remember the game against Liverpool 🤭
Matthew Snider
Matthew Snider:
I predict Real Madrid based on their experience and moxie (and because the master of the Dark Arts, Sergio Ramos, is supposed to play), but there's no denying Tuchel is "a cunning fox" just like Jan said a couple weeks back, so I won't be shocked if Chelsea pull off the upset. Looking forward to the match.
Titus Kiptoo
Titus Kiptoo:
After the match Espn next video Title " Did Chelsea Pay the price for not killing the game in the 1st leg"

Real will not play as badly as they did in the 1st leg, Mendy is back, meaning we go back to 433. I am confident that Real will be firing on all cylinders, 2-1 in favour of Madrid.
Atif Saeed
Atif Saeed:
Don't start with Ramos tomorrow. It's going to be Tuff to beat Chelsea. Hazard has the chance to become Hero for Madrid and Villain for the Blues

Ambedkarite Truth:
Pressure will be on Chelsea a bit more as they are playing at home, they had more chances to finish off the tie in the first leg itself and Madrid have unexpectedly reached till the semis.
Having said that, Madrid will have to play lot better than they did in the 1st leg!

Ridwan Ali
Ridwan Ali:
Timo Werner time to get goals
If Tuchel wants to go through to the final he needs to bench Werner and start Giroud, you know how many chances that idiot missed in the first leg 🤣🤣🤣 but as a Real Madrid fan I think we will go through to the final and Luka Modric will put on a brilliant masterclass

Start Giroud ST, Werner LW, pulisic RW, Mount CAM

Harry Sandro
Harry Sandro:
Real Madrid suffer many injuries and the recovered players are not fully fit. I say Chelsea is the favorit but nobody knows.
This match will define an Era, will Real Madrid still be the monsters of Europe that have dominated the champions league or will Chelsea start cementing themselves as regulars in the Champions league.
