Real Madrid vs Chelsea - Champions League Match Preview

After an exciting encounter in the first leg Real Madrid play host to Chelsea in the return fixture in Madrid tonight.

Real Madrid ran out 3-1 winners a Stamford Bridge in a result that surprised many people thanks to a hat-trick from Karim Benzema.

With a two goal lead there are many thinking that Real Madrid could sit back and try and soak up pressure from Chelsea tonight in a bid to frustrate them and look to see it through with the two goal lead they secured in the first leg... This is not how we see the game playing out.

We are expecting to see Real Madrid start the game on the front foot and take the game to Chelsea - sitting back is not something that is seen favourably inside the Bernabeu and fans will be keen to see their team kill the game off early.

We saw Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score land in the first leg and there is a chance we could see that happen again tonight but we are not confident enough to tip both...

We are instead looking into another market for some value tonight:

Real Madrid - Over 1.5 Team Goals : Odds: 2.20

We feel this market offers us good value tonight in a game where we expect goals - especially as Chelsea have to some out on the attack to try and win the game.

If we had to go for a Correct Score prediction it would be a 2-1 victory for Real Madrid.
