Why is Real Madrid a safe bet to win?

Benzema scored all 3 goals against the Blues in the first leg, but Real has proven they don’t require Benzema to win matches. Karim had been hurt in most of Real’s last 5 matches and the favorite in this won all 5, including dusting Paris Saint-Germain 3-1. Real didn’t even bounce after dominating Chelsea in the first match.

Casimero and Vasquez scored in a 2-0 Real Madrid victory over Getafe in their next match. Real is playing great soccer and this happens on their pitch. Don’t look past Real to get it done.

Possible Line-Up

  • Courtois
  • Carvajal
  • Militao
  • Alaba
  • Mendy
  • Modric
  • Casemiro
  • Kroos
  • Asensio
  • Benzema
  • Vinicius

Real Madrid’s Last 5

  • Win – 2-0 vs. Getafe
  • Win – 3-1 vs. Chelsea
  • Win – 0-3 vs. Mallorca
  • Win – 3-1 vs. Paris Saint-Germain
  • Win – 4-1 vs. Real Sociedad

Why is Chelsea a safe bet to win?

The Blues looked horrible against Real Madrid. But we must put the loss in perspective. Karim Benzema scored all 3 Real Madrid goals. If Benzema hadn’t dominated, who knows what would have happened. The Real player was on another level. It’s doubtful he plays that way again.

Not only that, but Thomas Tuchel will have a different strategy in the second leg. Expect Chelsea to play similar to how they did versus Southampton. They won’t beat Real by 6 goals, but they will be more prepared than they were versus Real in the first leg.

Possible Line-Up

  • Mendy
  • Azpilicueta
  • Silva
  • Rudiger
  • James
  • Jorginho
  • Kovacic
  • Alonso
  • Mount
  • Pulisic
  • Havertz

Chelsea’s Last 5

  • Win – 0-6 vs. Southampton
  • Loss – 1-3 vs. Real Madrid
  • Win – 1-2 vs. Lille
  • Win – 1-0 vs. Newcastle United
  • Win – 1-3 vs. Norwich City

Real Madrid vs. Chelsea Betting Prediction

Real has played fantastic soccer, but they were so great versus Chelsea that they can lose by 2 goals and still win on the aggregate. Scoring 3 road goals in a Champions League match is huge. Real knows this. So does Chelsea. Don’t expect Real to play nearly as aggressively in the second match. They might pull Benzema early if they get a lead over Chelsea or even if the Blues are up by a single goal.

Real is playing to make the Champions League Semifinals. They aren’t playing to win this match. It won’t make for as exciting of a match that we saw in the first leg. But it will lead to a Real aggregate victory. As far as this game is concerned, Chelsea has the advantage. Real will concede at least 1-goal. Then the home team will cost to an aggregate victory while Chelsea gets the moneyline win.
