Chelsea take on Real Madrid this Wednesday for their Champions League second leg semi-final fixture. A 90-minute win for either side will prove to be enough to see progression into the biggest club competition final in the world of football.
CHELSEA VS REAL MADRID BETTING
A 1-1 draw in Spain gives Thomas Tuchel and his London Blues the slightest of advantages ahead of their second leg semi-final Champions League fixture against the Spanish champions this Wednesday.
Since replacing club legend Frank Lampard to become the first German manager to take the reigns of Chelsea F.C., Thomas Tuchel has only seen his side defeated twice in the 23 games he has managed across all competitions. Although a recent 2-0 home win against Fulham in the Premier League is a positive that his players can take into their upcoming Champions League fixture, the 13-time winners of the competition should prove to be a greater handful this Wednesday.
While goals are not coming as frequently as Chelsea fans might like, with the Blues only managing to score more than one goal twice in their last seven fixtures, there is a feeling around Stamford Bridge that their blockbuster summer signings are finally finding their feet and turning the corner.
Kai Havertz, who was signed for £70 million, found the back of the next twice last Saturday and is calculated at 7/1 (8.00) to open the scoring this Wednesday against Real Madrid, while Timo Werner is at 13/7 (2.85) to score at any time.
The most decorated side in the competition’s history will have the chance to make it to their fifth final in just eight years as Real Madrid’s superstars take on Chelsea in the second leg of the Champions league semi-final fixtures.
Real Madrid travel to London this Wednesday knowing that they must score against a side which has only conceded two goals in their last eight fixtures. Although the London Blues have become a durable team under the watch of Thomas Tuchel, the Spanish champions have shown themselves capable of moving up in gears and – when push comes to shove – Zidane’s Los Blancos often find themselves on the winning side of some of the hardest football clashes on the continent.
Unable to shuffle their team, as they are still in the middle of a La Liga battle for first place, Real Madrid head into their semi-final Champions League fixture with a deserved 2-0 victory against Osasuna under their belt.
Karim Benzema, who may finally feel like he is finally getting the world-class recognition he deserves, is calculated at 9/2 (5.50) to be the first goal scorer this Wednesday, and at 3/2 (2.50) to score at any time.
An emotional return for Eden Hazard is also on the cards, with the Belgian forward at 11/4 (3.75) to bang in a goal at his old stomping ground, while Jose Vinicius Junior comes in at 11/4 (3.75) to find the back of the net.
