Chelsea vs Real Madrid Betting Tips

Chelsea are hosting in the second leg semifinal of the champions league at Stanford Bridge in London on 6th May 2021 at 12:30 AM IST. Two former champions clashing again on the grandest stage in the second leg fixture. The stalemate at Madrid might as well turn out to be an advantage to Chelsea.

Chelsea Form & Team News

Chelsea was the number one team after the group stage in this year’s Champions League. They qualified with 14 points from six games with four wins to their name. In the pre-quarters, Chelsea beat La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid by an aggregate score of three goals to zero. And in the Quarterfinals, they faced French Porto and even though they lost the second leg fixture by a goal to nil, they have managed to qualify to the Semi-finals on the back of a brilliant away performance in the first leg which they won 2-0.  They have the advantage going into the second leg fixture with an away goal to their name earned at Madrid last week. Chelsea are playing some great football under Tuchel and are expected to give a tough fight to the opposition. 

Rudiger and Mateo Kovacic is the only injured player in the Chelsea squad. Tuchel after the brief and resultless Lampard-era has managed to lift the team up and the high-profile signings are slowly making their names in this Chelsea squad. Olivier Giroud has been in terrific touch going into this game. He has netted six goals in this champions league so far. Timo Werner has also managed to contribute to five goals which include three goals and two assists. Kai Havertz, Hudson Odoi and Thiago Silva all hold the aces for a Chelsea win against the Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Real Madrid Form & Team News

Real Madrid qualified as the number one team from Group B with 10 points from six games played. They were slow to get off the blocks in this year’s Champions League but in the knockout stages have been quite prolific and seem to have found the mojo back. They won against Italians Atalanta in the pre-quarters beating them 4-1 on aggregate. In the Quarterfinal, they played against English giants Liverpool and thrashed them on aggregate 3-1 to reach the semi-final. The first leg resulted in a stalemate which is an advantage to Chelsea but Real Madrid could well and truly turn this around. Zidane now has a chance to add to his Champions League trophy collection with another one this year.

Carvajal and Ramos will probably miss the next game owing to physical discomfort while the likes of Federico Valverde, Ferland Mendy and Lucas Vazquez are all set to miss the next match due to injuries. Zidane has a task cut out in terms of team selection with injuries to key players and will probably have to select from the rest of the squad. Karim Benzema has shown in this season what he is capable of and with V.Junior and the mid-field trio of Kroos, Casemiro and Modric have formed a solid combo. Ramos missing out may be a major blow, but Real Madrid still have an enviable defence at their disposal.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Real Madrid, given the current form they have carried over in the Champions League look favourites to win this fixture. Chelsea can turn up as they did in the first leg and win with the away goal advantage they earned from Madrid last week, but Real Madrid have started to play like the Real Madrid we have known over the years and look threatening enough to win another European title. 

Tip 1: Total Goals under 2.5

All Three of the last three matches that Real Madrid have played across competitions have had the total goals to be under 2.5. While playing at away, Real Madrid have had two of the last three matches where the total goals have been under 2.5. In this champions league alone, Real Madrid have had two of the last three matches where the total goals have been under 2.5. In the case of Chelsea, all of their last six matches played across competitions, have had the total goals to be under 2.5. Playing home, all four of the last four have also had the total goals to be under 2.5. Their last five matches in the champions league this year have also had the total goals to be under 2.5. Even though the three previous head to head matches between the two sides have resulted in more goals, the present form is entirely different, so it’s quite likely the match will have under 2.5. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for the total goals to be under 2.5 is 1.58.

Tip 2: Both teams not to score

In the last six matches played by Real Madrid across competitions, five have had both teams have not scored. While playing at away, all three of the last three matches Real Madrid have played across competitions have had the best teams to have not scored. One of the last two matches that they have played in the Champions League this year have had the side from Madrid being involved in both teams not scoring scenarios. Five of the last six matches Chelsea have been part of have had the above condition being satisfied. Four of the last five matches played home by Chelsea have also had the condition satisfied. The three head to head matches between the two sides though have not yielded the condition as mentioned above, but under the present scenario, Both teams are not playing the same brand of football they played back then. The odds for Both Teams to not score according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.71.


Chelsea hold the aces but Real Madrid cannot be counted out before the final whistle. An edgy game on the cards. Lesser goals and a defensively tight game on the cards. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1. Total Goals under 2.5 @1.58
  2. Both teams not to score @ 1.71
