Real Madrid vs Chelsea Prediction & Pick
Real Madrid has performed well over the last few weeks. Carlo Ancelotti's club has won nine of its previous 14 matches, only picking up three losses over that stretch. Even more impressive is that the Whites have outscored their last six opponents 17-4.
Now, Real Madrid gets to face a Chelsea squad that's looked vulnerable as of late. Chelsea has gone winless in its last four outings and has failed to score a goal in each of the last three. They've also scored just 12 goals through their first eight 2022-23 UCL matchups, proving that they don't have the offense to keep pace with the Whites.
With the home crowd giving Real Madrid an extra boost, it's going to be back to the drawing board for Chelsea.
Final Score Prediction: Real Madrid: 2 | Chelsea: 0

Real Madrid vs Chelsea Best Bet
Even though the odds favor Chelsea to cover the 1-goal spread, I'm going with Real Madrid winning by multiple markers. The Whites are scoring an average of four goals over their last three games, whereas Chelsea hasn't celebrated a goal since the 76th minute of its EPL matchup with Everton on March 18.
With the way that Real Madrid has been scoring at will lately, back the Meringues to cover the spread.
Bet: Real Madrid -1 (+200)
