Welcome to our Chelsea vs Real Madrid betting tips, prediction and odds analysis ahead of their Champions League semi-final second leg clash at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
Chelsea scored a vital away goal in the first leg which will give them a cushion heading into this game. Real Madrid either have to win away or record a high scoring draw in order to progress to the final of Europe’s Premier Club competition.

Porto did record a shock 1-0 away win over Chelsea in their quarter-final second leg clash though the Blues comfortable win from the first-leg ensured that they advanced to the semi’s.

Anytime Goal Scorers
Chelsea- Kai Havertz. After scoring a double against Fulham during the weekend, the German will be keen to add to his tally against Madrid and potentially earn his side an appearance in the Champions League final for the first time since 2012.
Real Madrid- Karim Benzema- Despite his age, Benzema has proven that he is still a prolific scorer in both the Champions League. His lethal shooting in front of goal could just be what Madrid need in order to progress to the Champions League final for the first time since 2018.
