Chelsea vs Real Madrid highlights: Karim Benzema hat-trick leaves Blues needing Bernabeu miracle

Live coverage from Stamford Bridge as Thomas Tuchel and his Chelsea team welcome Real Madrid to west London for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final match-up

Thomas Tuchel’s side dispatched Los Blancos in the semi-finals of the Champions League en route to winning the competition last season.

On this occasion Chelsea are in search for a place in the final four having defeated Lille in the last 16 to earn the right to face Carlo Ancelotti’s men. The Spanish team had a tougher task as an inspired Karim Benzema hat-trick saw Los Merengues overcome a 2-0 deficit against Paris Saint-Germain.

Chelsea will be hoping to rediscover their form following the 4-1 defeat to Brentford in the Premier League, despite the reputation of the opposition. In his last outing in Europe Tuchel claimed a competition record with more wins than any other manager in his first 50 Champions League matches. He will no doubt want to continue to improve upon that.

Follow all of the action with Adam Newson, Scott Trotter and Jake Stokes who bring every moment in the build up to and action from kick-off at 8pm.
