The Champions League is now in the business stage since there are just eight teams left to battle it out for the right to be crowned the best domestic team in Europe. There are some tasty quarter-final ties for us to watch and bet on, but there is one that catches our eye the most, and this is Chelsea vs Real Madrid. There should be plenty of action to keep us all highly entertained, and below we are going to give you our prediction for Chelsea vs Real Madrid 2022 and tell you who we think will march on to the semi-finals.

Preview: The Fixture Dates

Chelsea v Real Madrid Prediction

The Champions League Quarter-Finals are played out over two legs, and the first leg of the Chelsea vs Real fixture will be played at Stamford Bridge on the 6th April, while the return leg at the Bernabeu Stadium will be played on the 12th of April. Both of these games will kick off at 8pm UK time, so be sure to set an alarm on your phone as these are two legs that you will not want to miss.

Chelsea are the reigning champions, having beaten Manchester City in the 2021 final, while Real Madrid has Champions League stats that would make any team jealous. They have won this prestigious trophy no fewer than 13 times, winning it three times in a row from 2015 to 2018. If there is one team that everyone wants to avoid in the Champions League, it is Real Madrid, because something about this competition brings out the best in them.

If you are wondering how many times has Chelsea won the Champions League, the answer is twice. The most successful club in England when it comes to the Champions League is Liverpool, as they have won the title five times, with their last success coming back in 2019.

Head-to-Head for Chelsea Against Real Madrid

Whenever you are thinking about betting on a football match, it is always a wise move to have a look at how the previous meetings between the two sides have gone down. Why is this the case? Well, it will show you who usually comes out on top in the fixture, and this can have an impact on who will win the next match between the two sides. In sport, one team can have a psychological edge over

another, and this can impact the final outcome. Therefore, below we have provided you with a table of the previous Chelsea vs Madrid fixtures.

So, as you can see from the above table, Real Madrid fixtures against Chelsea are pretty rare, with there having been just five since 1971. However, what is important to take away from the above table is the fact that Chelsea have never lost a match against Real Madrid.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid 2022 Road to the Quarter-Finals

Another thing that it is wise to take a look at before betting on a big match such as Chelsea v Madrid is the teams that each side have beaten to get to the Quarter-Finals. Obviously, if a team has had a harder route to the last eight and has brushed aside all that came before them, then it is a good sign that they will go on to succeed.

Chelsea were drawn in a group with Juventus, Zenit Saint Petersburg and Malmö FF, and they finished second behind Juve with four wins, one draw, and one defeat from their six matches. They scored 13 goals in their six matches and only conceded 4, with three of these coming in a 3-3 draw with Zenit. However, it must be stressed that the Blues had already qualified for the Last 16 at that stage.

Real Madrid were drawn in a group with Inter Milan, Sheriff Tiraspol, and Shakhtar Donetsk, and they finished at the top of the group with five wins from their six matches. They did lose 2-1 to new boys Sheriff, which was a huge surprise, but this turned out to be nothing more than a blip, as they finished top with a five-point cushion over Inter in second. They scored 14 goals and only conceded three from the six matches that they played.

Chelsea were drawn against Lille in the Round of 16, while Real had the unenvious task of taking on Paris Saint Germain. The Blues made light work of Lille, beating them 2-0 in the first leg and 2-1 in the second for an aggregate score of 4-1. Real, on the other hand, came back from a 1-0 defeat at the Parc des Princes to put on a stunning performance at the Bernabeu to win 3-1 and advance to the Quarter-Finals 3-2 on aggregate.

The Odds on Offer

When you look at the odds that are on offer at all of the best bookmakers, then you will see that the majority of them have Chelsea as slight favourites to make it through to the Semi-Finals. This really is one of those games that will be close and could go either way, and we look forward to watching 180 minutes (or possibly more if it goes to extra time) of two quality teams battling it out for the right to play Manchester City or Atltico Madrid in the Semi-Finals.

When it comes to outright winner odds though, neither of these sides are fancied to go on and lift the title in May. Manchester City and Liverpool are the two clear favourites, while Bayern Munich are third favourites. However, given their record in this competition, it is never wise to completely rule out Real Madrid.

Betting Tips for Chelsea Versus Real Madrid

First Leg to be Drawn: The first leg of the Chelsea Real Madrid game is being played at Stamford Bridge, and we think that the match will end in a 1-1 draw, with Real Madrid getting a vital away goal.

Real to Win Second Leg: The second leg of Madrid v Chelsea will be played at the Bernabeu Stadium, and we believe that Real Madrid will walk away with a 2-1 win, giving them a spot in the semi-finals thanks to a 3-2 aggregate score.

Both Teams to Score - Yes: We reckon that there will not be a clean sheet for either side in either of the two legs. They scored 27 goals between them in the Group Stage of the tournament, and it will be very hard for both teams' defence to keep a clean sheet.

Karim Benzema to Score: In the Real Madrid match against PSG, Benzema was on fire and it was his hat-trick that won the game for Real and sent them through to the Quarter-Finals. He has scored eight goals in this year's Champions League, and we would not bet against him not adding to this tally in this fixture.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid Live Stream

You will not find a Real Madrid vs Chelsea live stream for this Madrid vs Chelsea game at the sports betting site that you have an account with, as betting sites do not have the right to show Champions League matches. However, we are pretty sure that you will be able to find a website that offers a Chelsea vs Real Madrid live stream so that you can place whatever bets you like and then follow the action as it plays out.

Our Final Prediction

We are pretty certain that this will be a very close match between two teams that are very close in terms of ability, but we feel that Real Madrid will just edge this tie, especially since they have the advantage of playing the second leg at home. They will then be one step closer to claiming their 14th

Champions League title. These fixtures could make for a good bet on football, because our prediction of Real Madrid just edging out the win goes against a lot of bookies’ favourite, Chelsea, so the odds should be slightly better in your favour, if Madrid do manage to do the business.

Our match prediction: Real Madrid to win.
