Andreas Christensen, the Chelsea defender, says they will make it difficult for Madrid to score against them when the two teams meet in London. 
 
"We didn’t take our chances and then they scored. They were dangerous on set-pieces too, so that’s something for us to focus on," Christensen said.
 
"But we’re all feeling comfortable, not just the defenders but I think the whole team and we’re very comfortable with the way we are playing. 
 
"We try to do that every game and at the moment we are a difficult team to score against, but we have to keep that up."

The Spanish champions have recorded four successive wins and two consecutive draws during their current unbeaten run.

Chelsea will host Madrid for the first time in a competitive match having met in two UEFA Super Cups, European Cup Winners' Cup final match and Champions League game.
