As regards the 2022-2023 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals draw, Graham Potter will face Carlo Ancelotti. Of course, Chelsea vs Real Madrid head-to-head matches are very interesting.
Even though the West London club have started performing impressively in the Premier League, winning three games in a row.
Nevertheless, they would have to be very strong in both legs against Los Blancos, especially at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.

Obviously, it’s not going to be an easy road for Graham Potter’s men, if they really want to make it to the UCL final.
The Premier League side would have to go through the Citizens or the Bavarians. Of course, the two teams are always good in European competitions.
The first leg of Real Madrid vs Chelsea will be played at Santiago Bernabéu, while the second-leg will take place at Stamford Bridge in April.
In all fairness, the West London club are kind of fortunate to face the Los Blancos, particularly in the UEFA Champions League.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men haven’t been performing impressively in 2022-2023, it sounds like a good draw for the Blues.
