Chelsea have a huge game against Real Madrid, and the Blues will need as little as a goalless draw to make it to the final.

Chelsea got a 1-1 draw away from home, and the Blues defence must be sharp at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, former Liverpool star Luis Garcia has pointed that Chelsea must be wary of Karim Benzema and Eden Hazard, as the two danger men who can cause problems.

“I’m not sure if he’s [Vinicius] going to be in the starting XI knowing that Hazard played at the weekend for 60-70 minutes and is maybe ready to play for 90 minutes,” the Spaniard told CBS Sports.

“Real Madrid need him, need his quality, need his creativity. He’s going to be involved probably but I’m not sure how.

“Maybe in the second half when they need something he will be on. Hazard and Benzema were the ones at the weekend who looked more sharp, they were the ones who were creating more chances against Osasuna so I expect them to do the same against this Chelsea team

“I’m not sure if they are going to be any closer because of the amazing job Tuchel has done with the defence.

“They put these players away from the box so they cannot damage you much so these two players have a lot of work if they want to score that goal to allow them to continue to the final.”
