A 3-1 win in the first duel is a bonus David Alaba & Co shouldn’t give up.
But opponents from England arrived with great confidence, and the recent 6-0 victory over Ralph Hessenhuttl FC boosted confidence in an unforgettable comeback at the Santiago Bernabéu. Real Madrid have been a pariah there this season with two painful exceptions. In the Champions League, Cherif Tiraspol celebrated a 2-1 away win, even arch-rivals FC Barcelona celebrated a 4-0 victory at the top of the league, which, however, star Karim Benzema was missing at every turn.
The 34-year-old Real Madrid captain is in good shape and has settled this time around. And Chelsea pained at Stamford Bridge with a “three package”. for a new one? “It was a magical night in London, but we cannot rest. We expect an opponent who will try everything,” Benzema confirmed. The Frenchman led his team to a 2-0 victory over Getafe in the Spanish championship on Saturday, 12 points ahead of its rivals Barcelona and Seville. Champagne can be refrigerated at least.
Of course, the “royal” want to dance in two parties, which is also Alaba’s claim. “I came to Madrid to win titles,” said the 29-year-old from Vienna. Mateo Kovacic, born in Linz, returns to his former workplace with Chelsea. It’s a special match.
