Real Madrid v Chelsea: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and how to watch the Champions League semi-final on BT Sport

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea go head-to-head with the most successful team in the history of the Champions League as they take on Real Madrid for a place in the showpiece final.

Published: 19 April 2021 - 12.37pm

Chelsea are two games away from the Champions League final but the team who stand in their way are none other than 13-time winners Real Madrid.

Thomas Tuchel's men overcame Real's city rivals Atletico Madrid in the last 16 before defeating Porto in the quarters as they reached their first semi-final in eight years.

Madrid meanwhile saw off Atalanta and Liverpool in the previous two rounds and Zinedine Zidane's men are bidding to win a fourth Champions League in eight seasons.

Incrediby this will be just the fourth meeting between these two sides and the first clash since 1998's UEFA Super Cup final which saw Chelsea emerge 1-0 winners.

Will Tuchel lead his new side to the Champions League final to face either Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain?

Or will Real Madrid assert their dominance on the competition yet again and seal a spot in May's showpiece clash?
