Chelsea vs Real Madrid: Prediction and Betting Tips
Can Tuchel inspire Chelsea to a third UCL Final
Thomas Tuchel’s influence continues on Chelsea as The Blues were able to come back to London with a great result from Madrid after they drew 1-1 with mighty Real Madrid. With just one defeat this season in the Champions League, Chelsea will have to prevent Real Madrid from scoring at Stamford Bridge and they will find themselves in their third Champions League Final.
The one-time UCL winners back in 2012 had won five and drawn one of their group stage matches this season. In the knockout stages, they eliminated Atletico Madrid and Porto after losing their only home match to the latter by 1-0. Thomas Tuchel is the only active manager in football who has played 5+ games against Real Madrid and hasn’t lost any. The blues hope to see that record extend come Wednesday night.
Los Merengues to fight for their beloved Champions League Final spot
It has been a very tough season for Real Madrid in terms of injuries and absences but the Spanish are still standing on their feet and battling on two fronts, La Liga and their beloved Champions League. Although they were outclassed by Chelsea in some stages of the 1st leg match and the 1-1 result is not in favor of the Madridistas, no one can count out Real Madrid from this tie as they are able to overcome any result.
After having a shaky group stage in the UCL this season suffering two defeats and qualifying as group winners on the final matchday, Zidane’s team eliminated Atalanta and reigning UCL champions Liverpool after some great displays in their away matches against both teams. Real had beaten Serie A champions Inter Milan as well in Milano proving how dangerous they are in away games.
- Chelsea have lost their last home match in the UCL
- Chelsea have lost one and drawn two in their five home matches in the UCL
- Real Madrid have drawn their last away match in the Champions League
- Real Madrid have two away wins in five away matches in the UCL
Chelsea vs Real Madrid Prediction
Thomas Tuchel seems to know how to play against Real Madrid and not lose as his record shows. The German coach will rely again on his young squad who press hard and give a hard time for Real’s relatively old and slow midfielders as we have seen in many parts of the first leg match.
Real Madrid and Zidane on the other hand, have proved many times before that they have the experience and capability to overcome such teams and results by dictating the game tactically and neutralizing the opponents pressing game with patient ball possession.
For our first prediction, we will back away win or draw as it is a big possibility and the odds are quite high with 1.67. For our alternative prediction, we will back under 2.5 goals in this match as the stats show that Chelsea’s seven matches and Real’s Six matches have seen that amount of goals.
