Why bet on Real Madrid versus Chelsea?
Real Madrid’s defense had been playing great. But Zinedine Zidane’s squad had struggled to score goals. The scoring drought ended on May 1 when Real put together a complete game. RM beat La Liga rival Osasuna 2-0. With that tune-up game in their back pocket, Real should play with more flair in the second-leg than they did in the first.

Why bet on Chelsea versus Real Madrid?
The Blues are a solid bunch. They followed up the draw versus Real last week with a nice 2-0 win against Fulham. Although Chelsea is a much better team than Fulham, maintaining focus versus a terrible opponent, knowing you must face one of the best club teams in the world a few days later, impresses. Mendy is playing like the best goalie in the world, and Chelsea gets Real on their pitch.

Chelsea versus Real Madrid Final Betting Analysis
Chelsea drew with Real in the first match. The Blues wanted to escape Real’s stadium with at least a draw. They accomplished what they set out to do.
On Wednesday, advantage Chelsea, right? Maybe not. Yes, the Blues are more comfortable at Stamford Bridge, but Real’s scoring issues were more mental than anything else.
Real Madrid had drawn 0-0 versus Getafe and Betis before the 1-1 draw against Chelsea. Real’s defense is playing lights out. The offense had struggled, which is one of the reasons the Blues were able to escape Real with a first-leg draw.
The 2-0 victory against Osasuna, where Militao and Casemiro scored goals, should jump start RM’s offense for this match. Zidane still has more pieces to work with than Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel.
The reason to like Real to knock Chelsea from the UCL remains. Zinedine has his choice of Kroos, Modric, Benzema, Asensio, Isco, Hazard, Junior, etc. Zidane can match Tuchel better than Tuchel can match him.
Expect a different Real Madrid to show up on Wednesday. Real will play a much more aggressive match. RM upsets Chelsea on the moneyline.
