Which channel is Chelsea vs Real Madrid? Champions League semi-final and live stream details

Chelsea are fortunate enough to reach their third Champions League final against Real Madrid on Wednesday night.

The Blues earned their elusive first Champions League victory in 2012, having come close on several occasions in the past, most notably when they lost to Manchester United on penalties in 2008.

They enter the semi-final second leg with Real Madrid holding a slight advantage due to Christian Pulisic’s away goal in last week’s 1-1 draw in the first leg.

But the Blues will know they could have been out of sight after the first leg, having dominated Real in the first half and failed to capitalize on what was an extremely impressive performance.

If they reach the final it will mean Thomas Tuchel will have the chance to win a brace in the European Cup and FA Cup in his first five months at the helm.
