Opta stats: Chelsea Vs Real Madrid

Real Madrid have now beaten the reigning champions of the Champions League in each of their last four such encounters, and for the sixth time in total, now the outright most of any side in the history of the competition (Juventus 5).

Chelsea have suffered back-to-back home defeats for only the second time under Thomas Tuchel, also doing so in April last year. The Blues have however shipped 3+ goals in consecutive matches at Stamford Bridge for the first time since October 2012.

Since the formation of the Champions League in 1992/93, only one of the previous 43 sides has overturned a first leg deficit of 2+ goals going into the second leg away from home, with Manchester United beating PSG at the last 16 stage in 2018/19.
