Defending champions Chelsea face a huge threat to their crown as they head to Real Madrid to try and overturn a 3-1 first leg Champions League quarter final deficit. A Karim Benzema hat-trick in the first leg has put La Liga’s leaders in pole position with Chelsea now having to open up and chase the tie.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

Paddy Power ambassador Phil Thompson is here to try and help us navigate this tricky clash at the Bernabeu on Tuesday night. Can Chelsea do it? Will Real pick them off? There’s only way to find out for sure – here’s Thommo’s Real Madrid v Chelsea tips.

Tuesday 8pm: Real Madrid v Chelsea

TV: BT Sport 2 and BT Sport Ultimate

Sadly I don’t think Chelsea will turn it around. What a massive win for Chelsea it was at the weekend. You’re thinking, ‘Where were all those scoring boots against Real Madrid in the home game!?’

I did tip Chelsea to beat Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge but it wasn’t to be. Saturday, what happens? Timo Werner gets two, Mason Mount gets two, and you’re going, ‘You should be saving them for Tuesday night!’ It’s going to be absolutely massive.

So, I do find this hard to split. Real Madrid had a comfortable victory against Getafe at the weekend at the Bernabeu, 26 shots they had. I was surprised that they picked such a strong team. They did leave Luka Modric and Toni Kroos out.

I’m going to go for Both Teams to Score in this one. I just think Chelsea will turn up but, being at home for Real Madrid, I can’t see Chelsea going through. I think Chelsea will have a lot of possession and Real will sit there and pick them off.

That’s what Chelsea have to be worried about. They do not want to lose an early goal, Chelsea. I’ve got Benzema to Score Anytime. I’ve got a 1-1 score line and I’ve got Kai Havertz to Score Anytime as well.
