Chelsea vs Real Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
On Wednesday night at 20:00, in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, Real Madrid will play away at Chelsea London, the trophy-winning team last season. The two teams face each other for the second time in history in a double leg of the UEFA Champions League, after last season’s clashes took place in the semi-finals, and Chelsea reached the final after a 1-1 round at the Santiago Bernabeu and 2-0 return home on Stamford Bridge. Interestingly, so far, Real Madrid has won against Chelsea, only in the two friendly matches that took place in 2013 and 2016.
In the round of 16, Chelsea had an easier opponent, managing to win both matches against the French team, OSC Lille, 2-0 in the home tour and 1-2 in the return away to France. Chelsea’s morale is a bit low for tonight’s game, after losing 1-4 at home to Brentford in their last Premier League game, but this defeat doesn’t confuse the “blues” too much, being almost sure of the qualification in the UEFA Champions League groups and next season, the 3rd place being assured. Chelsea have not conceded a goal at home this season in the Champions League, with four wins out of four, 1-0 with Zenit, 4-0 with Malmo, 4-0 with Juventus in the groups and 2-0 with Lille in the round of 16.
On the other hand, Real Madrid will have the opportunity to take revenge against Chelsea, after being eliminated in the semifinals last season and in 1998, they lost the European Super Cup, score 0-1 in front of the same team. In the round of 16, the Spaniards eliminated PSG, after a 1-0 defeat in the away round and a spectacular 3-1 return victory at the Santiago Bernabeu, after a perfect match made by Karim Benzema, the author of a hattrick. In the groups, Real Madrid had managed three victories without a goal, 0-1 with Inter, 0-5 with Shakhtar Donetsk and 0-3 with Sheriff Tiraspol. Before tonight’s clash, Real Madrid won the away match 1-2 against Celta Vigo in LaLiga.
