Chelsea Fans Optimistic Ahead of Tough Champions League Run with Favorable Stats Against Real Madrid

Chelsea have only lost one of their seven games against Real Madrid in European competition – indeed, they have the lowest percentage of losses against Real Madrid (14%) of any side to have played them 5+ times in Europe.

As Chelsea fans brace themselves for a challenging journey to the final, there is a statistic from the Champions League that is providing them with optimism.

It was almost predictable that Chelsea would be given the most challenging matchup in the Champions League.

They will be pitted against Real Madrid in two matches, and if they manage to defeat them, they will then face either Bayern Munich or Manchester City in the semi-finals. However, there are reasons to be hopeful.

In the previous year, Chelsea was eliminated by Real Madrid, but it was a close call, and the team had a good chance of making it to the semi-finals before being undone by individual brilliance. Additionally, in the year before that, Chelsea overcame Real Madrid on their way to winning the championship.

The statistics seem to be on our side. According to OptaJoe, Chelsea have lost only one out of the seven matches we have played against Madrid in European competitions so far.

The only defeat came in the home leg last year, where we were undone by a couple of moments of individual brilliance from Karim Benzema. However, we managed to win at the Bernabeu, and in the previous year, we secured a win and a draw against them, even though we played behind closed doors at the Di Stefano arena. It appears that we are in for yet another intriguing match-up.
