Chelsea vs Real Madrid head to head

Chelsea and Real Madrid meet for the first time in a competitive match at Stamford Bridge.


A historic Champions League tie reaches its conclusion at Stamford Bridge tonight, and our preview continues with all the noteworthy numbers you need to know…

The only previous occasion was in November 1966 in an International Charity match.

The Blues won the game 2-0 with goals from Tony Hateley and John Hollins in front of a 32,277 crowd. 

Real Madrid have faced Chelsea more often without winning than any other side in their history, failing to win in all four games against us. 

Prior to the first leg, our three previous meetings had been played on neutral grounds.
