Sergio Aguero's prediction

Aguero has now backed Real Madrid to see off the Premier League giants once again when they lock horns later in April.

"I can’t just ignore the past and present of Real Madrid – they are the likely winners of this tie," Aguero told Stake.
"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 oppositions," he continued.

Real Madrid will host Chelsea in the first leg on April 12 at Santiago Bernabeu, with the return leg scheduled a week later at Stamford Bridge.
