Champions League: Real Madrid at Chelsea Odds
To Advance: Real Madrid -1250 | Chelsea +710
Real Madrid +155 | Draw +250 | Chelsea +170
Over 2.5 goals -122 | Under 2.5 goals -122
Chelsea enters on a rotten run of form as a club in disarray. The club is winless since March 11th. They sacked manager Graham Potter after just six months in charge. They lost 2-1 to Brighton on the weekend in caretaker Frank Lampard’s first match. They’re huge underdogs to advance after a listless performance in the first leg in Madrid.
Real Madrid are 11 points behind Barcelona in the La Liga standings so their full attention is on repeating as winners of the Champions League. They blasted their Catalan rivals in the Copa Del Rey 4-0 in early April and beat Chelsea handily 2-0 in the first leg of this tie. They’re a club that has a history of stepping up in big matches and are finding good form here.
Champions League: AC Milan at Napoli Odds
To Advance: AC Milan -144 | Napoli +118
AC Milan +350 | Draw +250 | Napoli +350
Over 2.5 goals +112 | Under 2.5 goals -136
Napoli is 14 points clear of Lazio for their first Serie A title since 1990. With such a big lead they’ve hit a bit of a skid this month. They eeked out a 2-1 win over dreadful Lecce in early April and played a 0-0 draw with Hellas Verona this weekend. They also got blitzed 4-0 by AC Milan in league play and lost 1-0 in the first leg here.
AC Milan is second all-time to Real Madrid in Champions League titles, but haven’t won one since 2007. They’ve played well against Napoli this month, but their other performances in recent weeks have been uninspiring. They haven’t beaten a non-Napoli opponent since February 26th.
The outcome of this game may rely heavily on the health of the primary goal scorers for each team. Napoli’s Victor Osimhen returned this weekend from an adductor injury that kept him out for a couple of weeks. Milan’s Olivier Giroud is dealing with an Achilles injury and his participation tonight may be in doubt.
