Betting prediction: Chelsea 0-0 Real Madrid


It was even-stevens last week when Chelsea and Real Madrid battled to a 1-1 draw in the Spanish capital, in what expectedly transpired into a tactical battle of two sides that are even across all areas of the pitch. Much of the same could be seen at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, and while Real knows they need a goal to reverse their fortunes, it is unlikely that they will brazenly push for it early. Chelsea has been phenomenal at home under Thomas Tuchel and could be happy to hit Real Madrid on the break with pace while being very difficult to crack open. A draw would be my guess once more, but a scoreless affair would not shock either.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid: Recommended bets

Full-Time Result: Draw

There is little that separates these two sides here, and not only was that notion fully on display in the first leg but much of the same can be expected at Stamford Bridge. Whether if there will be goals on display here remains to be seen, but it is hard to see past another stalemate.

Correct Score: 0-0 

Doubling down here on the draw and putting in a sneaky bet on a 0-0 affair (with 7.5/1 returns) could very easily be a risk worth taking. Both teams are capable of finding the back of the net in equal measure, but the scoreline being what it is, it is hard to imagine that either side will come out of the blocks looking for an early strike that could leave them vulnerable at the back from early on. Chelsea could squeak the result the longer Madrid goes without finding a goal, but I’m still sticking with a draw on this one.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid: Match preview

Chelsea’s preparations for their second-leg clash with Real Madrid went off without a hitch when the Blues ran out comfortable winners against sure-fire relegation candidates Fulham over the weekend in a 2-0 win. A brace by German wunderkind Kai Havertz was enough for another three-point haul for Tuchel, with Mason Mount and Timo Werner also putting in very good displays on the day.

There were changes to the XI that featured in Madrid and that is expected to be reintroduced in London on Wednesday, but what surprisingly didn’t change is Chelsea’s tactical deployment. Despite being clear of the Cottagers in every respect, Tuchel kept tactical continuity despite their “lesser” opponent in what can only be described as an attempt to keep everything fresh in the bloodstream for what will be needed against Real. It is this type of preparation and level of thought that Tuchel can rely on that has aided in the Blues’ improvement under the German since his arrival at the club. Chelsea had neither the most shots on the day nor the lion’s share of the possession despite featuring against a side who sit in 18th while playing them at Stamford Bridge no less.

It would be incredibly fitting that Tuchel would make his second final in the Champions League in as many seasons, and even more impressively, with two different clubs. There are criticisms that can be levied against him for the manner in which he left all three of his former charges, but the native of Krumbach has Chelsea where they are both in the Premier League and Champions League on merit. Ninety minutes is all that stands between Chelsea and another finals appearance, and for Tuchel, another feather in the cap of a managerial career that is becoming impressive indeed.

Real Madrid remain justifiably defiant in their chances

“For me it was really special to share a dressing room with these guys, and to see how professional they are and how good they are. Guys like Sergio Ramos and Benzema have been on the top level for the last 10-15 years, and I really enjoy their hunger. It’s crazy how they stay hungry still, even though they have won everything. To see them every day giving everything in training is really something special. Benzema is one of the top three strikers in the world. I saw it every day in training, and it’s really nice to see how well he is playing right now.”

Former Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin spoke with Goal about his former club and their chances of reaching another Champions League final, and maybe even winning the competition once more. Though he only made ten appearances for Los Blancos during his time there, Sahin saw the constant drive and motivation felt at the club by its players and staff alike; the unmatched desire to win everything despite having already done so time and time again throughout their illustrious history. He made mention of the influence of center-forward Karim Benzema, labeling the former French international as one of the top-three strikers on the planet, and it would be hard to argue with that sentiment given his record at the club, and even before that period when he was setting the world alight in the Rhône valley at Olympique Lyonnais.

That same drive and determination were on display when Benzema brought Real back to equal terms after Chelsea took the lead through Christian Pulisic, and that spirit will be needed now more than ever if the Spanish superpower is to negative the Blues’ valuable away goal and stop an all-English final from taking place after Manchester City dispatched PSG at the Etihad to book their first-ever finals appearance.

Zinedine Zidane has done a fantastic job of extracting the most out of a squad that lacks real depth given the size of the club, even when his back was against the wall with many feeling his time in the Spanish capital may be coming to an end. But as a former icon of the club himself during his playing days, perhaps there is no one better to help push the club once more to the promised land.

Chelsea team news vs Real Madrid

Mateo Kovačić is the only guaranteed casualty that Thomas Tuchel must contend with when Chelsea host Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge in their second-leg clash.

German international Antonio Rüdiger is expected to be back and in the matchday XI after taking up a place on the bench during the Blues’ 2-0 win against Fulham over the weekend.

After securing a vital away goal in the first leg, Tuchel could deploy the same XI with the pacey duo of Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic upfront in the hopes of catching Real on the break.

Real Madrid team news vs Chelsea

Zinedine Zidane has major headaches to contend with in a pile-on he would have opened to avoid when Real Madrid visits the English capital.

Confirmed unavailable is the trio of Daniel Carvajal, Raphael Varane, and Lucas Vázquez who all miss through injury.

Ferland Mendy and Sergio Ramos are both listed as doubts as well, and if Ramos is not recovered in time then it is likely that Nacho will deputise in his stead.
