Michael Owen has given his prediction on the Champions League clash between Real Madrid and Chelsea.
The two sides are set to face each other on Tuesday night in the first leg of the semi-final in the European top tier.
And speaking about the upcoming clash, Owen has predicted a 1 – 1 draw for the teams.
“Real Madrid welcome Chelsea to the Spanish capital having not lost a competitive match since February. However, Los Blancos have won only once in their last four matches and come into this after drawing 0-0 at home to Real Betis at the weekend,” the pundit said.
“With no goals conceded in three games, Chelsea’s excellent defensive record continues to impress. Furthermore, the Blues’ have let in just one goal in their last seven away from home.
“I don’t think Thomas Tuchel will deviate much from what we’ve seen from his side recently. That could mean we’re in for a typically cagey first leg, so it would be no surprise to me if it ended all square.”
