Chelsea face Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals as they look to take a first leg advantage in Spain.
It’s going to be an uphill task for Chelsea to progress into the semi-finals as they eye their third triumph in 11 years, with the winner of the quarter-final earning a last-four tie against either Bayern Munich or Manchester City.
Lampard oversaw a substandard performance at the weekend prior to their biggest game of the season so far. Chelsea were narrowly, but well-beaten on the pitch by Wolves thanks to Matheus Nunes’ first half stunner into the top corner to seal a 1-0 win for the hosts at Molineux.
Now they head to Spain and, although Madrid lost to Villarreal 3-2 at the weekend, if they perform anything like they did against Wolves, Chelsea could be in for a long night on Wednesday.
Here is all the information for the European encounter:
Date, kick-off-time and location
