Real Madrid vs Chelsea live updates: Benzema goal in Champions League match

Chelsea go up against the defending champions tonight as they travel to face Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Victory over Liverpool in last season’s final saw Real lift the Champions League trophy for a 14th time, and Carlo Ancelotti’s side will be confident of taking a significant step towards number 15 against a Chelsea side sorely lacking in confidence.

Frank Lampard, back in the dugout as interim manager, did not bring an immediate change in fortunes as the Blues were beaten by Wolves over the weekend, but he must now find a way to get Chelsea’s front-line firing in the first leg of this quarter-final.

Real Madrid vs Chelsea live updates: Benzema goal in Champions League match

Chelsea are facing a monumental task this evening as they take on Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-final first leg.

The Blues travel to the home of the current European champions with faint hopes of causing an upset against Carlo Ancelotti’s impressive side. New caretaker manager, Frank Lampard, was unable to quickly turn around Chelsea’s fortunes during his first game back in the dugout with the Blues suffering a 1-0 loss to Wolves at the weekend.

The squad are low on confidence after a difficult season which has seen them lose two managers and fall well off the pace in the Premier League. Their only hope of redemption comes in Europe’s top competition and Chelsea must now defeat Real to progress.

Ancelotti’s men are likely to lose the La Liga title to Barcelona having lost their fifth league game of the season to Villarreal on Saturday. Their main prize this campaign is another Champions League trophy so they will want to inflict as much damage on Chelsea tonight before the second leg at Stamford Bridge.
