The blues are currently the defending champions in the European competition after Tuchel’s men were 1-0 winners against Manchester City in the final last season thanks to Havertz’s first-half winner at the Estadio do Dragao.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is predicting that Real Madrid will edge to a 1-1 draw with Chelsea FC on Wednesday night to secure a 4-2 aggregate win and progress to the last four of the Champions League.

“That was a brilliant result for Real Madrid in London,” Owen told BetVictor.

“There’s only one man to talk about, Karim Benzema! I’m not sure I’ve ever seen two better headers in the same game.

“He’s in the form of his life and is such a talisman for this side.

“Chelsea had chances at Stamford Bridge and probably should have scored more. I can see them scoring in Madrid, but Real are so experienced and will do enough to go through. 1-1.”
