Christian Pulisic makes exciting Chelsea prediction amid Real Madrid draw

Chelsea news as Christian Pulisic has backed his teammates to produce another historic end to the season in the Champions League despite their troubling domestic campaign 

Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has sent a warning out to the rest of the teams left in the Champions League after the Blues learnt their quarter-final fate.

Victory in the Champions League has coincided with Chelsea’s turnaround in form throughout the last two weeks. The win over Dortmund was one of three straight consecutive victories that has lifted the pressure off Potter’s shoulders.

Following the draw, bookmakers have marked Chelsea as seventh favourites to lift the grand prize at the end of the season – with Man City, Bayern and Madrid all within the top four favourites.

“Is it going to be easy? No. Are we going to have big fights, tough battles and big teams that we’re going to play against to get there? 100% but we’re ready for it and we’re excited by the challenge.”

Chelsea’s record against Real is a rather impressive one. In the seven meetings, the Blues have won four and only faced defeat once – last season’s 3-1 quarter-final loss in London.

Under Thomas Tuchel, the west Londoners surpassed Madrid in the semi-finals before defeating Manchester City in the final before losing 5-4 on aggregate last season.
