Chelsea have the opportunity to reach a first Champions League final since 2012, but first the Blues must go past Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Chelsea have the advantage heading to the second leg after a 1-1 draw at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium last week, and all Chelsea need do is avoid conceding a goal and they are through to the next round.

Ahead of the game, Michael has backed an all English final, and he believes that Thomas Tuchel’s defence will be well drilled against the Los Blancos.

“Onto Wednesday night’s match where Chelsea have a huge opportunity as they take on Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge,” Owen told BetVictor.

“This is the type of game where Thomas Tuchel thrives. With an away goal in the bag, he is sure to have his side well drilled with the aim of giving nothing away.

“If Chelsea are happy to sit in, I think there is every chance they could nick one on the break against a Madrid defence that’s looked shaky in recent weeks.

“With that in mind, I’m siding with the Blues’ to go through and make it a second all English UEFA Champions League final in three years.”

Interestingly, Owen rightly predicted that Manchester City will beat PSG 2-0, and has backed Chelsea to beat Real Madrid 1-0.
