1 Lesson Chelsea must learn from Liverpool vs Madrid clash, ahead of their second leg tie next week

While Chelsea edged Porto to reach the UCL semi final, Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 3-1 on aggregate to set up their clash with Chelsea. Ahead of their meeting with Madrid on Tuesday, Chelsea would have watched how Madrid played against Liverpool, and as such we draw out one lesson Chelsea must learn derive from those encounters, if they want to conquer Madrid next week.

Chelsea and Madrid played out a 1-1 draw in their champions league semi final first leg tie, a result Thomas Tuchel and his men would have happily picked ahead of the kick off. Confidence will be high in Chelsea's camp, having matched Madrid in almost all area, and almost claimed victory if not for some wasteful finishes, plus the away goal which they secured, they would believe they have it all to lose ahead of their meeting next week.

However, Chelsea must be wary of the threat Madrid can pose too. The 13times European Champions will not come to London without a motivation of their own, and will be ready to fight tooth and nail to make it to the final. In their encounter with Liverpool early this month, Real Madrid were not at their best, but yet still manage to come out on top. As such, Chelsea must learn this one lesson.

Many of the blues fans believe Chelsea midfield nullify the threat posed by Madrid, however, Liverpool were so poor against Madrid at the Bernabeu in the first half, that they conceded two goals, they improve in the second half and scored. In the second leg at Anfield, Liverpool improved drastically, and if not for wasteful finishes, they would have advanced to the semi final.

Chelsea also must expect an improve showing from Real Madrid, as any believe that they will perform like they did in the first leg, will cost Chelsea a place in the final.
