I think I give Chelsea a bit more of a chance than many others. Thomas Tuchel was very dismissive about their chances after the first match but I don’t feel Real played brilliantly at Stamford Bridge.

Karim Benzema scored two absolutely incredible headers but they kind of hit them with a blitz within a couple of minutes. In the second half Real had one shot on target in the whole half and that was the gift that Edouard Mendy and Antonio Rudiger gave them.

Chelsea really controlled the game without creating a huge amount of chances. I know you can say that Real were sitting back and they were happy with their three goals. But I do feel that Chelsea are a better team than Real Madrid.

I would still be concerned about the legs in that Real Madrid midfield. I see questions about Chelsea’s attack but I think Romelu Lukaku’s injury is actually a positive for Chelsea.

If you look at their front three at the weekend against Southampton it’s actually the front three that drove them to the Champions League glory last year. I don’t know if they’re good enough to qualify but I can see Chelsea going close. The angle I like is, I’d back Chelsea to be Winning at Half Time.

If you’re looking for a Real angle it’s hard to look past Karim Benzema to Score Anytime, given the price. I think they way Chelsea will have to play it’s hard to see Benzema not getting at least one good chance.
