Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen has made his prediction for a critical UEFA Champions League quarter-final game between Real Madrid and Chelsea this evening. Madrid are in the ascendancy having beaten Thomas Tuchel's side 3-1 in the first leg.

It means Chelsea go to the Santiago Bernabeu knowing they have to try and overturn a two-goal deficit. Karim Benzema 's hat-trick means he has now scored two hat-tricks in a row, having been the catalyst for Los Blancos in the R16 against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

Owen believes that the Frenchman will have a huge say in who prevails on Tuesday night. He told BetVictor (via Mirror):

“That was a brilliant result for Real Madrid in London. 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."


Owen then made the prediction that Chelsea would be unable to turn things around, continuing:

"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.”
