CHELSEA fans can’t believe Todd Boehly predicted a 3-0 win at Real Madrid – as they blamed the 2-0 DEFEAT on the club owner.

Boehly’s pre-match tip stunned supporters before the Champions League quarter-final first leg – and afterwards they were even more convinced he was clueless.

The American businessman told fans to “have a lot of faith” – but many supporters lost theirs in him as reigning champs Real sunk the ten-man Blues.

Karim Benzema tapped a 21st minute opener before Ben Chilwell picked up a straight red for tripping goalbound Rodrygo just before the hour.

Chelsea battled well enough in interim boss Frank Lampard’s second game back and offered more goal threat than in Saturday’s 1-0 Premier League defeat at Wolves.

But Marco Asensio’s sharp finish on 79 minutes leaves Real in command for next Tuesday’s return leg.

One fan posted: “You can’t blame the managers at @ChelseaFC . The blame is solely with Todd Boehly. Running Chelsea like it’s a game of Fifa. A squad packed full of the same players (midfielders), and no strikers. Boehly suggesting they’d win 3-0. Embarrassing.”

Another noted his prediction and added: “Shame on you.”

A third wrote: “Nah this is extremely bad… Todd just wants to ruin our club.”

And a fourth said: “Todd Boehly really said we’re going to win 3-0 just to watch us get completely and utterly outclassed by Madrid.”

Boehly’s earlier assessment was labelled “satire”.

But a more optimistic supporter joked: “Todd Boehly actually meant 3-0 in the 2nd leg. Not tonight.”

Boehly made his prediction after he was spotted spotted coming out of a restaurant in Madrid and was asked by a reporter for his scoreline verdict.

He replied; “Chelsea is going to win.” When asked by how much, he said “3-0.”

Separately, Boehly told Sky Sports: “I tell the fans – have a lot of faith.

“We look at this as a long term process, we have a lot of work to do. We’ve lot of faith about the future. Our future is bright”.

Fans immediately went into shock mode.

One said: “He’s so crazy. Real Madrid are gonna win 4-0.”

Another reacted: “He must be joking.”

And he was warned – accurately: “That is going to age horrendously.”
