class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The visitors have been reliant on their number nine for goals this season but Goal's tipster thinks could be value in a strike to come from midfield
Real Madrid head to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening knowing they must score against Chelsea to have any hope of progressing to what would be their fourth Champions League final in six years.
Following last week’s 1-1 draw in the first leg of their semi-final, failure to find the back of the net in west London would see Zinedine Zidane’s men exit the competition and so the onus is on the La Liga side to take the game to the Blues.
Chelsea vs Real Madrid Latest Goalscorer Odds
Karim Benzema scored Madrid’s goal last week with a brilliant first half strike that was his 71st goal in the Champions League and the Frenchman remains Los Blancos outstanding goal threat.
The former Lyon forward can be backed at 6/4 (2.50) to score at any time and at 9/2 (5.50) to open the scoring.
However, the shortest-priced player to score at Stamford Bridge is Olivier Giroud, who did not feature in the first leg but is offered at 11/8 (2.38) to find the back of the net – something that Timo Werner really should have managed last week.
The German missed a glorious early chance and is priced at 15/8 (2.88) in the anytime scorers market with Christian Pulisic, who netted in the first leg, at 9/4 (3.25) and Kai Havertz at 11/4 (3.75) following his domestic double at the weekend.
Chelsea vs Real Madrid Goalscorer Tips and Predictions
There is little doubt that Madrid are reliant on their best attacking player for goals, but apart from Benzema, there are some interesting goal-scoring options in the market for the visitors.
Casemiro is the team’s second-top scorer behind the Frenchman this term and Saturday saw him score his sixth league goal of the season, making this his most prolific campaign for Los Blancos.
The Brazilian is offered at 7/1 (8.00) to score while Eden Hazard is likely to start the game against his former club and since his return from injury a couple of weeks ago, the Belgian has looked to be getting back to his best form.
Hazard can be backed at 3/1 (4.00) to score what would surely be an emotional goal against the side for whom his scored 110 times.
