Chelsea vs Real Madrid
UEFA Champions League
Date: 18 April 2023, Tuesday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
Real Madrid earned a big advantage ahead of the trip to English capital as Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio fired a goal in each half to secure a comfortable 2-0 victory for the Spaniards at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
Chelsea will have been satisfied to carry only a two-goal deficit into the reverse fixture based on everything we have seen six days ago in Madrid.
The current Champions League holders completely controlled the game from the start to the end last week and they seem to have beaten the rivals while even taking their feet off the gas.
Interim manager Frank Lampard will be without Ben Chilwell in the return leg on Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge as the left wing-back got sent off at the hour mark at the Bernabeu.
It was the fourth consecutive game in which the Blues have failed to find the back of the net and the fifth in a row without a victory in all competitions.
Real Madrid, on the other side, continued their continental supremacy and a generally strong spell of form by getting the third win in the last four outings across competitions.
Los Blancos are flying high in the final third of late as they bagged two or more goals in four consecutive outings across competitions. The run includes the 4-0 drubbing of Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semifinal at the Camp Nou.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid Prediction
We’ve seen the gulf in quality between these two teams six days ago in Spanish capital and there is really not much to point towards any different outcome on Tuesday night in London. Chelsea are really struggling at both ends of the pitch lately, especially in attack.
Los Blancos, on the other side, are scoring at will. We see the value in backing Real Madrid to win at the 2.55 odds. You can also alternatively take Carlo Ancelotti’s men to score two or more goals at the 2.37 odds.
