Reason for Chelsea vs Real Madrid Predictions
Chelsea has the slight advantage from the first leg, which ended 1-1 in Madrid. Chelsea will go to this game on the back of a 2-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League, another great result under manager Thomas Tuchel. It was a fifth unbeaten outing and a fourth clean sheet in five matches for the Blues, but even more crucially, the first time in six games that they’ve scored more than a goal. They haven’t won the last two Champions League matches, but neither of them left Chelsea in a bad position as far as their progress in the competition is concerned. In the 11 games in the Champions League this season, Chelsea have lost just once – against Porto, but then they still advanced despite the loss. Christian Pulisic plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an incredible player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. A great reinforcement, he was a favorite of RB Leipzig fans.
Real Madrid is also heading to this game on the back of a win, having beaten Osasuna 2-0 in La Liga. Theirs was more labored than Chelsea’s win against Fulham. Real Madrid has lost their flair and their second goal, scored by Casemiro, was more like a fluke, four minutes after Eder Militao’s opener. The fact that the two goals came in the last 14 minutes points to Real Madrid’s struggle to break down Osasuna. It was the second time in six matches that they managed to score two or more goals. That will not be much of a bother here, and they can still advance even with scoring just a goal. However, reports that Sergio Ramos could make the trip to England is a massive boost, while Toni Kroos and Luca Modric are expected starters after sitting on the bench for the whole game against Osasuna. Casemiro has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Junior Vinicius enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw.
We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
