OPINION: 4 Reasons Why Chelsea Can Beat Real Madrid In Their First Leg Of UCL Semi Final

The first leg of the Champions League semi final encounter at Stamford Bridge may end in favour of Chelsea as there are 4 reasons they can beat Real Madrid.

There have been lots of opinions regarding what might be the outcome of the match between Chelsea and Real Madrid as both teams prepare to face each other on the 27th of April. Thomas Tuchel who has improved the English side to an organised and quality one will be hoping to repeat his previous attempt of winning the trophy at PSG with his new team. Zidane on the other side whose team has never beaten the blues will be hoping to change the story on the day of reckoning.

However, the mission might be a tough one for Zidane and his team as there are reasons why Chelsea can beat Real Madrid in the first leg. See reasons below.

1. Chelsea have become hard to beat

Earlier when Thomas Tuchel took over, he mentioned that he was going to turn Chelsea into a club that will be hard to beat. It seems he has succeeded in doing that as the blues have lost only a few games since the German took over.

2. Thomas Tuchel's record Against

According to goal, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is the only opponent who has faced Real Madrid in the Champions League more often without losing (W1 D3). This also another huge factor that Chelsea can beat Real Madrid.

3. Madrid's poor stats against Chelsea

Also according to goal, Real Madrid have never won against Chelsea in their entire history despite being the only club who has faced Chelsea more often in all competitions (D1 L2).

4. Edouard Mendy's performance

Statistics also have it that Chelsea's goal keeper Mendy has conceded only 2 goals in his first 9 UEFA champions league outings. The Senegalese may stand as a solid stopper for the blues against a counter attacking Madrid side.

Overall, the squad at Chelsea now has discipline, composure and confidence as they can now defend a 1-0 lead till 90 minutes. They can as well beat Madrid when they meet in the next coming week.
