Preview, Prediction and Picks
|Real Madrid FC +136|
Real Madrid are looking to reach the first UEFA Champions League (UCL) final in three years. They are frankly favorites in this tie after four clean sheets in a row, and another here would be potentially vital. Yet despite Real Madrid having a 62.5% win rate in their last eight UCL home semi-finals, they have kept a clean sheet in just 50% of those same matches.
In addition to the Galacticos' favorite status, their success over Liverpool in the previous round means that the club now has a competitive win rate of 40.48% against English clubs. They also recorded four straight UCL victories in Madrid before the clash, all after a winning first half and a goal in the 31-40 minute period.
Vinícius Júnior recently scored a brace against Liverpool and, in turn, two of his three UCL goals this season ended the scoring with more than 3.5 goals in total.
The 2012 UCL Winner, Chelsea are aiming for their first high-level European centerpiece since this incredible year. In particular, the "Blues" have gained the measure of possession in every previous UCL victory with Thomas Tuchel, with an average margin of 13.33%.
The wins are part of a now-booked nine-game unbeaten streak for the UCL. Seven of them have seen at least one team fail to score, and partly because of that, four of the last five wins in that streak have seen Chelsea win the first half 1-0.
Olivier Giroud will be eager to "overtake Madrid" after scoring the winning goal in the first leg at R16 (68 ") - his last three UCL goals have passed the hour.

|Prediction and Picks|
Real Madrid have not lost a competitive game since February 17, but have only won one of their last four outings. The 0-0 draw with Real Betis on Saturday ended a five-game winning streak at home, which they will seek to correct on Tuesday. A 1-0 win over West Ham on Saturday means Chelsea have not conceded in three games, a streak they will look to continue at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium this week.
