In three meetings in official competitions, Chelsea have never lost to Real Madrid.
At the end of the month, Real Madrid and Chelsea will meet for the first time in their history in the Champions League. A duel which has however already taken place in other international competitions, but which does not really succeed at the Merengues. Indeed the Blues – who eliminated FC Porto to join the last four of the Champions League this year – are unbeaten against the club from the Spanish capital. The two clubs last met in 1998 in the UEFA Super Cup. A match that ended in a narrow 1-0 victory for Londoners thanks to a goal from Gustavo Poyet.
A few years earlier, they had faced each other in the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1971. An even tighter duel since the two teams left with a score of parity, 1-1. Real Madrid and Chelsea then separated in a second meeting, this time won 2-1 by the Blues. Thomas Tuchel’s men will therefore go to the lawn of the Alfredo Di Stefano stadium on April 27 with full confidence. But beware, because Real Madrid have already offered the scalp of a great England, Liverpool, in the quarter-finals.
