Real Madrid vs Chelsea
Europe – UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 27 April 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium.
The Los Blancos seem to be out of the La Liga title race, and now all their concentration would turn towards the Champions League.
Moreover, Zinedine Zidane will have an agenda to bring the title somehow back to the most successful team in the history of the competition.
Should his team succeed in this quest, he will become the only manager with four titles – essentially establishing himself as one of the greatest gaffers of all time.
The first leg takes place in Spain, and the obvious objective of the Royal Whites would be to finish off the task here itself – thus avoiding any mishap in the return leg. The team has been in impressive form at home lately, and have been scoring at will.
They also do have a good h2h record against this rival over the years.
Meanwhile, the Blues will not at all make things easy. Ever since Thomas Tuchel took the reins, he has turned things around for the English club.
The team has delivered countless impressive performances in the last several weeks, and has scored in huge numbers as well.
By the looks of things, expect either team to find the back of the net this Tuesday at the Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium.
Real Madrid vs Chelsea: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Los Blancos have a 100% winning record in the past decade – all of which had come in the International Champions Cup. They had also scored three or more goals in all these games.
- The last they lost was back in 1998, in the UEFA Super Cup.
- The Blues had won the final of the 1971 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, against this same rival.
Real Madrid vs Chelsea Prediction
Zidane’s men defeated Liverpool with a 3-1 aggregate scorecard in the Quarters, while Tuchel’s men registered a 2-1 win against Porto.
Going on, the Los Blancos are on a 17-game unbeaten run, and of these 12 were wins. They had also won 11 of their last 15 appearances at home, and most importantly, the team knows how to elevate themselves to a higher level in the Champions League.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 22 of their last 25 overall fixtures, and importantly, they are also on a ten-match unbeaten streak on the road – eight of which were wins.
Taking these stats into account, and the sheer determination of either, expect goals from both sides of the pitch.
