Chelsea have the slight upper hand following a 1-1 draw at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano but Real Madrid are unlikely to give up without a fight.

From a pure financial perspective, however, Real Madrid should offer little chance to Chelsea – with turnover of €714.9 million to their €464.5 million.

Both clubs recorded a significant operating loss last season, Chelsea's at €127.3 million and Real Madrid's at €101.6 million.
