UCL: Stuart Pearce predicts teams to win Champions League semi-finals

3 months ago 34

Former England defender, Stuart Pearce has tipped Chelsea to beat Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

He also predicted an all-English final.

Chelsea face Real Madrid in one of the semi-finals, while Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain will battle for a place in the final.

Pearce described Thomas Tuchel’s side as a team to beat at the moment as they are set to face Spanish side.

Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 on aggregate in the quarter-final to book their place in the final four.

Chelsea got past Porto 2-1 on aggregate on Tuesday night as they continue to thrive under Thomas Tuchel.

Tuchel’s side will also face Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday in what could be a precursor to an all-English Champions League final.

“We’ve got two outstanding ties on our hands. Delighted the two English clubs have been kept apart,” former England defender Pearce told talkSPORT.

“We’ve got an opportunity for an all-English final. It’s almost impossible to call, both semi-finals. Some top, top quality. Just sit back and enjoy it.”

When asked if Chelsea can win against Real Madrid, Pearce replied: “No doubt in my mind about that. They (Chelsea) are the team at the moment showing absolute top quality.

“It wouldn’t surprise me if they won the semi-final of the FA Cup and went all the way to the Champions League final.”
