After playing out a 1–1 draw against Real Madrid at the Alfredo Di Stefano stadium in the champions league semi finals, Chelsea would now play against Fulham in the league with one eyes on the semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

The Chelsea manager is likely to make changes to the starting lineup that started against Real Madrid on Tuesday, to rest some of the team players ahead of the second leg, as they would need to be at their best and take their chances to knockout Real Madrid.

Chelsea would have three advantage over Real Madrid in the second leg of this game at Stamford Bridge.

So in this article, we will be looking at the three advantages that Chelsea could capitalize on to knock out Real Madrid to progress to the finals of the Champions League this season.

1. Playing On A More Familiar Ground

Chelsea would welcome Real Madrid to their home ground on Wednesday for the second leg of the semi final fixture, which is the staduim they know more than any opponent.

Despite the fact that the over 40,000 Stamford Bridge capacity stadium would not be filled with the fans in this fixture, It is always an advantage when a team plays at home in situations like this in the champions league.

It has been a ground they have been playing for so many years and would be motivated playing in it, which could serve as the right advantage they need to go through to the finals of the competition.

2. An Away Goal

As it stands, the away goal Chelsea had at the first leg of the semi-finals game against Real Madrid is one major edge that Chelsea have going into the return game at Stamford Bridge.

The score might look equal on paper, but away goal put Chelsea ahead of the Spanish club. All Chelsea need to do is to stop Real Madrid from registering an away goal at Stamford Bridge, and they would be through to the finals.

3. A More Solid Defense

Thomas Tuchel has set up the Chelsea team in a way that their defense seems to be almost impenetrable. They have only conceded four goals in the champions league this season, making them one of the team with the best defense in the competition so far.

It took Real Madrid a moment of brilliance from Karim Benzema to score a goal against Chelsea in the first leg, which was their only shot on target in that game.

Knowing that Chelsea have kept clean sheets in all games at Stamford Bridge under Thomas Tuchel, except against West Brom. It would be a great advantage for the blues to progress to the finals.
