Chelsea and Real Madrid Set for Champions League Showdown at Stamford Bridge

Key Stats
– Chelsea are unbeaten at home in the current Champions League season but enters the second leg as 9/5 underdogs against Real Madrid.
– Real Madrid have advanced in 18 of the 19 occasions they’ve won the first leg by two or more goals in the Champions League.
– Karim Benzema has scored 14 goals and provided two assists in his last nine appearances in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Chelsea take on Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge, and it is a match in which Blues fans don’t see many opportunities given the current state of the team.

Frank Lampard’s men suffered a 2-0 defeat in Madrid last week, with Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio giving Carlo Ancelotti’s Los Blancos a strong lead for this return match in London.

Recent Struggles for Chelsea

Chelsea, who are currently under the guidance of caretaker manager and club legend Frank Lampard, have since suffered their third consecutive defeat at home against Brighton in the last weekend. Despite the sacking of Graham Potter a few weeks ago, the team’s performance has shown very little signs of improvement, and it is pretty much unrealistic to believe that they will be able to overcome the 2-0 deficit against a squad of the calibre of Real Madrid.

Real Madrid Back on Track

The defending champions have had a rather inconsistent campaign this term, yet it looks as though things are heading in the right direction now. Carlo Ancelotti’s men were able to get back to winning ways in La Liga with a 2-0 win over Cadiz last Saturday. Despite the fact that the title race is almost over now that they trail Barcelona by 11 points, they still have plenty of opportunities to secure their 15th Champions League title and will be very determined to secure a smooth passage to the semi-finals.

Even if Chelsea are still unbeaten at home in the current Champions League season, they are the strong underdogs for this match, as, at the moment of writing, you can get 9/5 with William Hill to win this match, with a draw at 12/5 and Madrid’s win at 6/4.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid Main Betting Tip: Real Madrid To Win

Considering the way Chelsea have been playing, it is very difficult to expect the Blues to not only overcome the first-leg deficit but even avoid a defeat. Chelsea have lost four of their last five games and are struggling to score goals, so there is a massive difference between the two teams, more than the odds are probably reflecting.

Without getting too creative here, backing Real Madrid to win looks like the best bet here, as the feeling is that Chelsea will focus mostly on avoiding humiliation rather than trying to win this game.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid Value Bet: Benzema To Score & Real Madrid To Win To Nil (90 Mins)

For our value bet, we have found a very good option with William Hill, which is currently available at 15/2. As mentioned earlier, Real Madrid should be able to prevail in this clash, and it is likely they will do so to nil given the struggles that Chelsea have upfront. Frank Lampard’s men have lost all three of their last games, and in addition to that, they have also failed to score in four of their last five encounters in all competitions.

Their only goal in the period was the one scored against Brighton at the weekend, and despite Real Madrid having been rather shaky at times this term, it looks as though they are improving also in that part of the game, so backing them to win to nil looks valuable.

Karim Benzema has been in top form in this competition, having scored 14 goals and provided two assists in his last nine knockout Champions League appearances. The French striker has been a pain for the Blues as well, as he has netted in four of the last five meetings between these two sides. He will look forward to adding to his tally against a Chelsea back line that looks very fragile and sees value in this double bet.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid Correct Score Prediction: Real Madrid 2-0

The Blues will have to push forward, but I don’t think they have what it takes to cause problems for a Real Madrid side that are fully committed in securing the pass with the minum fuss. Real are likely to hit in counterattack, and if they do find the first goal, they are likely to run away with this tie, also considering how low in confidence the Chelsea players are right now. Another 2-0 win for Real Madrid looks like a decent bet in the correct score market.
