Chelsea Football Club have the chance to secure a remarkable double by winning both the men’s and women’s Champions League.

Emma Hayes’ women’s team booked their place in the final courtesy of a 4-1 win over Bayern Munich and Thomas Tuchel’s men are the favourites 8/13 with bet365* to do likewise when Real Madrid visit Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Real Madrid are the masters of this competition under Zinedine Zidane and will not make life easy for Chelsea though so we’re expecting a tight match with our best bet the 13/20 that Betfair are quoting on under 2.5 goals being scored.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid Betting Odds:

Man City have run away with the Premier League title but the form of Chelsea since Tuchel arrived in West London has been so impressive that they have been backed into 6/1 with BetVictor to win next season’s Premier League and are 10/3 with 888sport to win this season’s Champions League.

Whether the Blues are good enough to win the biggest tournaments of all remains to be seen but they are certainly incredibly well-coached under Tuchel and are very well placed to make it through to the final in Istanbul.

The big challenge for Chelsea is overcoming Real Madrid’s incredible experience in the Champions League.

Zidane knows that this is not a classic Real Madrid team but he knows what it takes to ensure that his team stay in ties at the very least as evidenced by the way they shut up shop in the second half of the first leg following Karim Benzema’s excellent equaliser.

We’re expecting this match to have a tense start before it opens up a little later on as Real Madrid go in search of the goal that they need so make sure to bet on the second half having more goals than the first at 21/20 with bet365*.

If Real Madrid are to utilise their experience and make it through to yet another final much will depend on the performance of Karim Benzema.

The French striker is Real’s main threat through the middle and will keep the Chelsea defence on their toes.

It’s tougher to pinpoint a single player who is most likely to do the damage for Chelsea but you have to think that Mason Mount is well priced to score first at 9/1 with Paddy Power.

Like all of his previous managers, Tuchel is a huge fan of Mount and the England midfielder does not shirk chances to score so can grab what would be his second goal in the Champions League and perhaps the most important of his career to date.
