Footage of a group of Chelsea fans in the Premier League making their way through the streets of Madrid has caught the eye on the internet this evening.
The clip in question, of course, comes before the confrontation between heavyweights in English and Spanish football in just 24 hours.
The squad of Blues fans, who made the trip to Madrid before the game, are clearly eager to reveal their presence.
Chants of “Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea” can be heard in the heart of the Spanish capital, with life-size cuts from chief retiree Thomas Tuchel who was also spotted by The Independent’s Miguel Delaney:

Benzema the difference
By turning attention to the upcoming Bernabéu match itself, the Chelsea stars will of course need all the help they can get on Tuesday night.
This comes as Tuchel’s forces find themselves in a two-goal hole against the backdrop of last week’s Champions League quarter-final first leg at Stamford Bridge.
Karim Benzema’s clinic eventually capped Real’s 3-1 exit on the right, leaving Chelsea with everything to do amid the club’s efforts to retain their title as Europe’s best player.
– 2019/20: 5 goals
– 2020/21: 6 goals

However, Tuesday’s visitors will see their chances of collapsing boosted by the elimination of the away goals rule in the UEFA competition, meaning that even a 2-0 win in Madrid would be enough to send actions into overtime.
