UEFA has confirmed that Chelsea will not play against Real Madrid at home for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.
The Blues were drawn against Los Blancos during Friday’s draw in Nyon.
It was reported Chelsea’s tie with Real could have been reversed as both Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid cannot play at home on the same day.
But UEFA has confirmed this is not the case.
Therefore, the current holders will not play away first and then at home for the all-important second-leg.
Instead, they will play the second leg in Spain, as drawn.
