Real Madrid vs Chelsea performance analysis
Before last weekend’s series of matches, Real Madrid players were in brilliant form with 2 consecutive victories against Valladolid (6-0) in La Liga and Barcelona (4-0) in the semi-finals of the King’s Cup, in which money director Karim Benzema has 2 hat-tricks. However, because there are not many opportunities to compete for the La Liga title, coach Carlo Ancelotti has decided to let go in this arena to focus on the Champions League.
The fact that Real Madrid “abandoned” La Liga is shown by the Royal team’s 2-3 defeat against Villarreal at home. It was the match where coach Ancelotti kept all three midfielders who regularly kicked in order to recuperate for the reception of Chelsea in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final.
Across the pitch, five days after parting ways with Graham Potter, Chelsea announced last Thursday the appointment of club legend Frank Lampard as interim manager until the end of the season. The 44-year-old strategist returned to Stamford Bridge just over two years after being sacked as head coach in January 2021.
However, Lampard’s second debut as Chelsea manager did not go so well, when the Blues received a defeat to Wolves. It was the 4th match in a row Chelsea did not know the smell of victory and this will certainly affect the spirit of the whole team. With what has been shown, the opportunity to gain an advantage against Real Madrid of coach Lampard’s army is not really feasible.
