Chelsea have already ousted La Liga table toppers, Atletico Madrid and FC Porto in the second round and quarter-final stages respectively, and the Blues have been drawn to face 13 time Champions Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the competition.
For Chelsea football club to win this coveted Cup, the team must face the best, and at this stage, only Europe’s biggest and best clubs are still left, as the three other UEFA Champions League teams are among the most rated in Europe.
Chelsea's young right-back Reece James has spoken ahead of the game and has admitted that anything is indeed possible and the Chelsea isn’t afraid to face Real Madrid or any other top European side.
Here's what Reece James said: “You can’t go into any football game with fear. You can definitely acknowledge a good team but you can’t go in worrying or in fear.
“Chelsea is a very good team as well. We have many strengths and we usually play to our strengths and I think that has been shown over in recent weeks. I just hope and believe we can continue our good form and keep improving as a team.
“As long as we’ve progressed further in the tournament, we obviously know the games have got harder and it’s higher stakes.
“As for me, I’ve never been in this kind of position before and like a lot of the other young lads but we’re definitely learning a lot on the way. This is part of playing in Europe and in the UEFA Champions League. Playing against foreign teams, you get to know what they do to get through games so you sometimes have to give some back to them as well.”
