Chelsea vs Real Madrid Match Preview & Team News
The home side heads to this match after a confident 2:0 victory over Fulham in the Premier League last weekend. Easy three points keep Chelsea in the top four, denying West Ham’s efforts to level up with them. Kai Havertz’s brace was enough for the Blues to seal the win and provide a boost of confidence ahead of the crucial game against Real Madrid. It has been a while since Thomas Tuchel’s side hasn’t scored more than once in the game, and they managed to improve their attacking record in the last match. On the other hand, defese is still very disciplined, as this was their fourth time in the previous five games to keep the clean sheet. Chelsea lost only once in the Champions League campaign, but the 1:0 defeat against Porto didn’t hurt them much as they progressed to the semi-finals. The Blues need another rock-solid defending to make the decisive step to the finals.
Real Madrid also comes from a 2:0 win over Osasuna, but their match was far from easy compared to Chelsea’s one. They needed to fight hard for three points to remain in the title race, and two goals in the last 15 minutes brought them a vital win. Los Blancos are still leveled with Barcelona in 2nd place and two points behind Atletico Madrid. Zinedine Zidane’s side hasn’t been too convincing lately, as they celebrated just twice on the previous six occasions in all competitions. The away side needs to score at Stamford Bridge to keep their chances of progressing to the finals alive, and all eyes will be pointed to Karim Benzema, who is a proven match-winner for the Spanish side. Real Madrid has been excellent in the back lately since the visitors conceded just once in the previous six games. Another encouragement for the away side is a potential comeback of their skipper Sergio Ramos.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Although Chelsea has a slight advantage and doesn’t need to chase the result, both sides have equal chances of progressing further. It is going to be a tight battle, and we can see this match going into the extra time.
Goals Market Prediction
Both teams have been rock-solid in the backline lately, and we don’t expect them to give up on their style. We’ll unlikely see more than two goals in this one, and this should be another low-scoring match.
