Chelsea face Real Madrid in the Champions League and the confirmed team news is in from Stamford Bridge.
It’s a European night in the English capital where Chelsea need to produce a miracle to progress into the semi-final to keep their Champions League hopes alive.
Real Madrid, the current holders, are two-goals up on aggregate after a 2-0 win at the Bernabeu last Wednesday in the first leg, after goals from Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio saw off a wasteful and 10-man Blues in Spain.
Caretaker boss Frank Lampard knows that Chelsea, who will have the home crowd spurring them on, have it all to do in west London and wants his side to play their part to try to overturn the deficit to produce another magical night and knock out Real.
“I have no doubt it will be positive,” Lampard said on Tuesday’s atmosphere. “And when I say that the lead into the game. The start of the game. The rest is down to us as a team to play with a real desire and know how to turn this game around.
“I have been here too many times before at this level of game with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on an evening midweek knockout Champions League game to understand that the atmosphere will be great.
“And again now it is time for us to tap into that early in the game and make sure we engage the crowd throughout, because they can help us for sure. It’s why this two legged competition is the best out there. We just need to play our part.”
