CHELSEA have a mountain to climb in Madrid tonight after Karim Benzema's hat-trick at Stamford Bridge last week earned Real a 3-1 first leg win.

The Blues will need to become the first English side to win a Champions League game at the Bernabeu by more than a single goal in order to qualify but they'll travel in good spirits following Saturday's six-goal demolition of Southampton.

But Chelsea have failed to score more than two away goals in a knock-out tie since their 3-1 win over Liverpool back in the 2008-09 season so the task ahead is huge and they should probably be bigger than 7/1 chances to qualify.

As Chelsea chase the game they could be vulnerable at the back and 29/20 for a repeat Real Madrid looks some value.

The aforementioned Benzema will be the key danger for Madrid and he's 11/10 to score once more. He's already hit 11 Champions League goals this season, the highest tally of his career.

Villarreal have given themselves a fighting chance to progress after a 1-0 win over Bayern Munich last midweek. They managed to keep Robert Lewandowski quiet and kept Bayern's chances to a minimum but it'll be a tall order to do so for another 90 minutes in Germany.

The Spaniards need look no further than the last round for a warning of what may lie ahead tonight. RB Salzburg held the German champions to a 1-1 draw in their first leg only to be thumped 7-1 in the return. That took Bayern's goals tally in the Champions League to 30 this season with 20 of those scored in just four home games.

You'd expect Unai Emery's side to be well-drilled but even the best laid plans can unravel at the Allianz. Like Chelsea, Villarreal feel a bit too short at 9/4 to qualify and big-hitters might fancy a bit of the 1/3 on Bayern to prevail. Alternatively the 4/6 on the Germans to qualify inside the 90 minutes appeals too.

  5. fitzythegypsy 1 month ago

    He could be on a hiatus, there was handbags at dawn here between himself and two other excellent tipsters about two weeks ago, he knows his stuff, as do the other two.. it should be the bookies that’s our ‘enemy’, not each other, shame really..

  6. HullShaker 1 month ago

    One bet for me last night but a lack of goals in Iceland – well done all with winners!

    Ghapmaster – apologies, only just seen your post re Bayern’s game. I’d opt for goals and think both could well score. Over 3.5 pays around evens but could be value in both scoring 1st half at 3/1 👍

    I’m doubling up both CL games for my picks:


    (19/10, bet365 NAP ⭐️⭐️⭐️


    (11/4, bet365 NB ⭐️⭐️


    (15/1, bet365 LONGSHOT ⭐️

    Best of luck!

    Hull Shaker – Thanks pal, your advice is very much appreciated.

    Can you see Bayern qualifying ? I will also be on goals but hoping for a 3-0, 3-1 etc to the hosts ?

    • maccathered 1 month ago

      I think they will although i have seen a good tipster tip them to draw,i think Villarreal will score you can’t ignore their away record for scoring goals.

  9. Ghapmaster 1 month ago

    Macca – They might score yes, Bayern will need to score 2 goals atleast which I’m hoping they will

  10. cockerspaniel 1 month ago

    Real Madrid v Chelsea
    Madrid corner in the 1st 15 min 11/10
    Over 1 Madrid corner in the 1st 15 min 4/1
    Over 1 Madrid corner in the 1st 10 min 10/1 Bet365
    I know the onus is on Chelsea to attack , but any team at home is capable of notching up early corners .
    Especially one of Real Madrid`s quality .

  11. cockerspaniel 1 month ago

    The price for early Villareal corners are big as well for anyone felling brave .

  14. spursman 1 month ago

    I see the Racing Post has tipped up Under 2.5 goals in the Bayern v Villarreal game…..interesting

    • forshie 1 month ago

      Spursman, you may have your wires crossed. I’ve seen over 2.5 goals & btts tipped by the racing post.

    • spursman 1 month ago

      It was on a section they use in bookies for racing and 3 games are featured down the side and it mentions that Bayern may “play on the front foot” and that Villarreal are “stubborn” and the tip says Under 2.5 goals…..obviously someone else has tipped something else in the football section of the paper. Sadly I’ll be throwing my money away on the 49s later 🙂
