Chelsea are set to face Real Madrid for the semi-final second leg in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Last time, during the first leg of the semi-final in the European top tier, the two sides recorded a 1 – 1 draw.
And now, as the Blues are going to host Los Blancos at Stamford Bridge, Micheal Owen has given his prediction, backing Thomas Tuhcel’s side to beat Zinedine Zidane’s team tonight.
“Onto Wednesday night’s match where Chelsea have a huge opportunity as they take on Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge,” the pundit said.
“This is the type of game where Thomas Tuchel thrives. With an away goal in the bag, he is sure to have his side well drilled with the aim of giving nothing away. If Chelsea are happy to sit in, I think there is every chance they could nick one on the break against a Madrid defence that’s looked shaky in recent weeks.
“With that in mind, I’m siding with the Blues’ to go through and make it a second all English UEFA Champions League final in three years.”
