How to watch Real Madrid vs Chelsea Champions League live stream

How to watch Real Madrid vs Chelsea in the Champions League: The holders are facing the exit after a first leg hammering. Here’s how to watch Real Madrid vs Chelsea on TV and online.

Chelsea are the masters of the unlikely Champions League triumph, but they’ll need to call on all of their powers of escapism to get through this one. The holders must overturn a 3-1 deficit to 13 times winners Real Madrid at the iconic Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in the Spanish capital. Sitting in the opposite dugout is former manager, the master Carlo Ancelotti.

Historically speaking, it’s arguably the toughest assignment European Football can conjure-up. But Chelsea have managed this before, and the first leg result was somewhat of a surprise given the strength of the English clubs in Europe over the last few seasons.

The Blues pulled themselves out of their slump with a thumping 6-0 win at Southampton at the weekend and know an early goal at the Bernabeu can change the picture dramatically.

It’s a tantalising prospect in store in Madrid. Here’s how to watch Real Madrid vs Chelsea on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
