Frank Lampard believes Chelsea can produce a “special” night and overturn a 2-0 deficit against Real Madrid in order to advance to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

His players, however, will have to do something they have not done in four games if they are to progress against the holders – score a goal.

Chelsea suffered a second successive defeat under interim boss Lampard after finishing with 10 men following Ben Chilwell’s straight red card for a foul on Rodrygo in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday.

It means the Blues must score at least twice at Stamford Bridge in next Tuesday’s return leg.

“Special things can happen at Stamford Bridge,” said Lampard, who has now suffered 13 defeats in his last 16 matches as manager in all competitions across spells with Everton and Chelsea this season.

“We have to believe.”
