The reigning European Champions Chelsea are all set to host Spanish club Real Madrid this week, in what will be the first leg of the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League 2021-22 season.
Despite the ongoing off-field drama regarding club ownership, Chelsea players and coach Thomas Tuchel have remained focused on the game. After finishing second in Group H, Chelsea knocked out Lille by defeating it in both legs in the round of 16 and finishing with an aggregate score of 4-1. The club has also advanced into the semifinals of the FA Cup, where it is set to face Crystal Palace. Chelsea has won 6 out of its seven consecutive games and will be feeling quite confident as it heads into this midweek clash. (It has, however, suffered a shock defeat in the Premier League to Brentford that will dampen its spirits).
Real Madrid finished at the top of Group D during the group stages and faced French heavyweights Paris Saint Germain in the round of 16. After losing the first leg 1-0, Madrid came back strongly in the second leg, knocking out PSG with an aggregate score of 3-2. After winning Supercopa de Espana, this is the second piece of silverware that coach Carlo Ancelotti will be aiming for.
With a 9 point lead over Sevilla, Real Madrid is also most likely to win the La Liga for the record-extending 35th time. Talking about the recent performances, Madrid’s unbeaten run of 5 games was ended by a 4-0 loss against Barcelona.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Chelsea F. C. vs Real Madrid UEFA Champions League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Stamford Bridge Stadium, London, on 6th April 2022.
This game promises to be an epic encounter, as the reigning champions will take on the team that has lifted the Champions League trophy more times than any other club. Real Madrid will also be looking to avenge the defeat it faced against Chelsea in the last season.
Thomas Tuchel is likely to have a fully fit squad at his disposal, with the only absentee being Ben Chilwell, who is suffering from a ruptured crucial ligament. On the other hand, the visitors will be traveling without Eden Hazard and Ferland Mendy, both of whom are nursing injuries. Coach Carlo Ancelotti himself has tested positive for COVID 19 and could be missing the flight.
The match is likely to be a thriller but with Chelsea suffering a defeat to Brentford and Real Madrid playing better than it has in a long time, we think chasing the odds and betting on a Real Madrid victory is the way to go.

Under 2.5 goals seems to be the bet to make in this contest in a match that has a lot at stake.
