Chelsea have a huge Champions League tie in the semi-finals, as Chelsea will face Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Chelsea have already ousted Atletico Madrid and Porto in the second round and quarter-final stage respectively, and the Blues have been drawn to face 13 time Champions Real Madrid in the semi-finals.

For Chelsea to win this Cup, the team must face the best, and at this stage, only Europe’s biggest clubs are still left, as the three other teams are among the most rated in Europe.

Chelsea right-back Reece James has spoken ahead of the tie and has admitted that anything is possible and the team isn’t afraid to face Real Madrid or any other top side.

Reece James said: “You can’t go into games with any fear. You can acknowledge a good team but you can’t go in worrying.

“We’re a very good team as well. We have many strengths, we play to our strengths and I think that’s shown over recent weeks. I just hope we can continue our good form and keep improving as a team.

“As we’ve progressed in the tournament, obviously the games have got harder and it’s higher stakes.

“I’ve never been in this position before, like a lot of the other young lads, and we’re learning a lot on the way. It’s part of playing in Europe and in the Champions League. When you play against foreign teams, they know what to do to get through games so you sometimes have to give some back to them as well.”
