UCL: Toughest opposition – Sergio Aguero predicts winner of Real Madrid, Chelsea clash
Real Madrid and Chelsea will face off in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, and Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero has predicted the result.
The former Argentina international has doubts about the Blues' ability to defeat the Spanish powerhouses and advance in the Champions League.
Prior to their 2-2 draw with Everton before the international break, Chelsea had won three straight games.
They advanced to the quarterfinals of the Champions League by defeating German Bundesliga team Borussia Dortmund.
Aguero told Stake: “I can’t just ignore the past and present of Real Madrid—they are the likely winners of this tie.
“But it isn’t over until we see how the games play out." Sometimes, the most minor thing can make a world of difference.
Granted, Madrid is tried and true in these kinds of matches. Their history and recent showings prove as much. They’ll be the toughest of opponents.
“But I wouldn’t expect that to make it an easy match for Real Madrid." Still, Madrid’s got the edge here.
