Predicted Chelsea line-up (4-3-3) vs Real Madrid, James and Sterling start

Predicted Chelsea line-up vs Real Madrid today


Chelsea entertain Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final tie tonight. 

The  Blues were outclassed by a 2-0 scoreline at the Bernabeu last weekend and they face an uphill task to progress to the last four of the competition. 

Predicted Line-up:

Kepa Arrizabalaga has been ever-present in goal since the World Cup. The Spaniard is expected to keep his place ahead of Edouard Mendy

In central defence, Wesley Fofana should partner Thiago Silva. Kalidou Koulibaly is out with a hamstring injury while Benoit Badiashile is ineligible to play. 

Reece James is set to continue in the right-back spot but there will be a forced change at left-back with Ben Chilwell suspended. Marc Cucurella should start in his absence. 

In the centre of the park, we anticipate Frank Lampard to pick his best possible trio. Enzo Fernandez, Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante should line up in midfield. 

Further forward, Joao Felix and Raheem Sterling should feature on the flanks. Kai Havertz was involved in training yesterday and should return to lead the line. 

Predicted Chelsea line-up (4-3-3) : Arrizabalaga; James, Fofana, Silva, Cucurella; Fernandez, Kovacic, Kante; Sterling, Havertz, Felix.
