Real Madrid will host defending champions Chelsea in the second leg of the 2021/22 Champions League quarter-finals, Wednesday 13 April 2022. The match at the Santiago Bernabeu is scheduled to kick-off at 02:00 WIB.
Madrid are already two goals ahead from the first leg in England. However, this duel was not over yet. Chelsea is still determined to come back and turn the situation around. Madrid had to fight another 90 minutes to finish their job and get rid of Chelsea.
Those who qualify from this party will face Manchester City or Atletico Madrid in the semifinals.
Madrid won 3-1 in the first leg at Stamford Bridge. Karim Benzema scored three Madrid goals, while Kai Havertz scored one goal for Chelsea.
Chelsea had the upper hand in possession and shot count, but Madrid’s finish was far more lethal. Romelu Lukaku also missed a golden opportunity. As a result, Chelsea fell, while Madrid came home with a win.
Madrid maintained their positive momentum by beating Getafe 2-0 through goals from Casemiro and Lucas Vazquez in La Liga last weekend. Meanwhile, Chelsea rose from adversity and slaughtered hosts Southampton 6-0 in the Premier League.
Chelsea dominated Southampton and won by a landslide. Marcos Alonso scored one goal, Kai Havertz one, Mason Mount two goals and one assist, while Timo Werner netted two goals and hit the post three times.
Victory over Southampton makes Chelsea more confident. Madrid seems to have to try extra hard if they want to get rid of the team that last season tripped them in the semifinals.
