Ahead of the second leg clash Champions League clash between Chelsea and Real Madrid, football pundits are yet again anticipating an all-English affair in this year’s final in Instanbul.
Although the match is finely poised after a 1-1 draw in Madrid, Chelsea have a slight advantage boasting of a vital away goal.
Premier League champions-elect Manchester City have already booked their slot in the final following a 4-1 aggregate win over French defending champions Paris Saint Germain.

Chelsea has progressed from five of their past seven knockout ties in the Champions League when avoiding defeat away from home in the first leg.
It will not be the first time teams from the Premier League will be meeting in the European big stage. In 2018/2019 season, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs squared it off at Wanda Metropolitan in Spain, with The Reds carrying the day with a 2-0 win.
In 2008/2009 season, Chelsea battled Manchester United in Moscow, Russia, and lost 6-5 through penalty shout-outs following a 1-1 full-time draw.
