Real Madrid vs. Chelsea: How to watch Champions League semifinal Leg 1 in Canada

It's a battle of two of soccer's elite clubs in this UEFA Champions League semifinal as Real Madrid and Chelsea face off. The Spanish club is a 13-time UCL champ while the English Premier League club is set to play in its eighth semifinal (won title in 2012).

Despite their storied histories, this marks the first time these teams are facing off in Champions League play. They've met three times prior: the 1971 European Cup Winners' Cup final (one draw, one win by Chelsea) and a Super Cup match in 1998 won by Chelsea.

The Blues also enter the match playing fantastic football, as they've had clean sheets in 16 of Thomas Tuchel's first 21 games at the helm. (He replaced Frank Lampard in January). It'll also be interesting to see if Christian Pulisic will hit the pitch as a starter or come off the bench. If he does start, he'll be the first American since DaMarcus Beasley in 2005.

There were some rumblings that this match would not happen because of the clubs' involvement in the now-defunct Super League; however, everything is a go.

"We have the right to play in the Champions League," said Real manager Zinedine Zidane.

"It's illogical and absurd (that we might be disqualified). No, I don't have any worries (about the refereeing). We'll play our semifinal, as is our right," Zidane added.
