Don’t write off Chelsea, they did it against Barcelona – Darren Bent warns Real Madrid

Don’t write off Chelsea, they did it against Barcelona – Darren Bent warns Real Madrid

Former Tottenham star, Darren Bent, has tipped Chelsea to beat Real Madrid and move on to the semi-final of the Champions League on Tuesday.

Chelsea is in Spain for the reverse fixture after suffering a 3-1 home defeat at Stamford Bridge last Wednesday.

The Blues boss, Thomas Tuchel had blamed his mistakes for the loss to the LaLiga giants which saw veteran Frenchman, Karim Benzema scoring a hat-trick.

While admitting it was his tactical ‘mistake’, the German boss had ruled out any chances of Chelsea making it to the next stage.

But Bent, a former England striker believes strongly that Thomas Tuchel ‘s men can pull off a surprise at the Santiago Bernabeu, citing 2012 when a ten-man Chelsea overturned a worse result against Barcelona.

“I think #CFC are more than capable of getting something out of this game,” he told talkSPORT.

“I’m not writing Chelsea off! They managed to get a result off Barcelona with 10 men in 2012. They can get something.”
