Last year a Chelsea Legends team played against Inter Forever at Stamford Bridge which was later named as a tribute to the late great Ray ‘Butch’ Wilkins. The Italians ran out eventual 4-1 winners although we saw our legends roll back the years, especially Roberto Di Matteo who scored a trademark long range goal.

This year the legends are back and they travel to Madrid this Sunday to play a Real side full of their legends which include Raul, Roberto Carlos, Alvaro Arbeloa and Julio Baptista.

This year actually marks twenty years since Chelsea beat Real Madrid 1-0 in the European Super Cup in Monaco. Gustavo Poyet scored the winner that night and he joins the star studded squad in Madrid.
