Real Madrid has a plus-32 goal differential in league action, and the defense has been stellar, allowing just 24 in 33 matches. Captain Sergio Ramos could return to the back line from injury, but Raphael Varane and Eder Militao have been a strong pair in the middle. Los Blancos have not allowed a goal in their last four matches, and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has 15 clean sheets in 33 La Liga games.
Why you should back Chelsea
The Blues have been in top form since Thomas Tuchel took over as manager in late January and have not lost in their past 10 games on the road. They have 16 clean sheets in 20 games in all competitions since Tuchel arrived, and they have allowed just three goals in 10 matches in this year's Champions League. Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has 15 clean sheets in 33 league games and seven in the UCL, and Cesar Azpilicueta and Thiago Silva are elite defenders in front of him. Ben Chilwell (five assists in league play) plays a critical role at both ends.

Tuchel is seeking the right mix, but Timo Werner (six goals, six assists in EPL play) is a major threat and Mason Mount (six goals, four assists) is always in the middle of the action. Jorginho and Tammy Abraham both have six goals, while Olivier Giroud and Christian Pulisic have four.
