The UEFA Champions League is back tonight, and we have four teams left in the pot, with the two highly anticipated semi-finals.
Real Madrid are hosting Chelsea in Spain for the first leg of their draw and as far as we’re hoping for a festival of goals, some stats are there to trample our hopes.
Here is the truth and our best bets.
📝 Match the facts
- 18 of Chelsea’s 21 games under Thomas Tuchel have scored less than three goals.
- The last four games for Real Madrid and Chelsea have only scored three goals in total.
- Real Madrid are undefeated in their last 17 games.
Los Blancos struggle to make an offensive impact
Real Madrid’s La Liga title hopes were dashed on Saturday when they were held to a goalless home draw by Real Betis, and they hope for a better night in front of goal when they face Chelsea on Tuesday.
The frustrating result was Real Madrid’s third goalless draw in four games, and while their defense deserves credit for four straight clean sheets, it’s a disturbing sign when they face a well-organized Chelsea defense.
Low-scoring case expected in Madrid
We like the appearance of the under 2.5 goals here, and that’s our key prediction for Tuesday night. With 18 of Chelsea’s 21 appearances under Tuchel containing under three goals and Real Madrid’s last four outings scoring just three goals in total, we love the look of under 2.5 goals here.
We go for another low scoring game, with Real Madrid ahead.
