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.”
