Chelsea–Real Madrid

Opportunities are subject to change. Last updated Apr 16, 2023 10:47 PM.

Chelsea are going through a dramatic season. The club is eleventh in the Premier League and is closer to relegation on points than to a place in the top four in England. This season the club has already had four trainers and now Frank Lampard is suddenly in charge again. The fact that Chelsea is still in the quarterfinals of the Champions League is already an achievement, but they actually had no chance against Real Madrid last week. The Madrilenians eventually won 2-0, but Real could have scored much more often. Because it was ‘only’ 2-0, Chelsea does not stand a chance, if it all goes well one evening, the team remains dangerous. It is not the qualities of the individuals in London.

Real Madrid does not seem to be champion of Spain anymore, but the club still has enough chance of winning a medal this season. For example, the club has qualified for the final of the Spanish Cup in recent weeks and Real has one leg in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio managed to score for Real Madrid last week, so that the club now has a good starting position for this game. The Royal are a machine that don’t seem to be giving away an edge. In the competition, Real won 0-2 against Cádiz last weekend. Vinícius Júnior and Luka Modrić did not participate at all in this match and were spared.

Chelsea – Real Madrid betting tip

Because Real Madrid did not score more often last week, Chelsea still has a chance for the semi-finals. Then the club has to surprise, because teams rarely succeed in winning with three goals difference from Real Madrid. The form is also not present at Chelsea as Real continues to win. That’s why the tip: betting on ‘Real Madrid wins’. This bet has an odd of 2.55 at Circus.

Napoli – AC Milan

Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli really seemed invincible this season. There was no problem in Naples until the team had to take on AC Milan. In Serie A, the team suddenly lost 0-4 to Milan at the beginning of April and last week also lost 1-0. Milan seems to have found the solution against Napoli’s machine and Spalletti has not yet found an answer to it.

Last week, Victor Osimhen was unable to participate in Napoli and he is an important pawn in the team’s tactics. Khvicha Kvaratskhelia missed a big chance in the first minutes and didn’t really make an impression for the rest of the match. To make matters worse for Napoli, Kim Min-jae and André-Frank Zambo Anguissa are also suspended for the second match. Osimhen did participate in Serie A again this weekend, so he seems to be able to play against Milan again.

In Serie A, AC Milan is in a fight for a top-four ranking. In the meantime, the club will also play in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Quite surprisingly, the team even managed to win. Ismaël Bennacer was the lucky one and he managed to score the important 1-0 in this match. Stefano Pioli is the first coach this season to crack Napoli’s code. Milan managed to win last week and will take on a battered Napoli because a number of players have been suspended. The only thing you can count on Milan is that the team has not been able to score after the red card. A 1-0 lead is not enough against a swinging Napoli.

Our prediction

This will be a very interesting duel. Milan seems to have cracked Napoli’s code, but what does Spalletti have in return? Napoli have individually better players and with the return of Osimhen there will be a great striker in the squad. The question is how Milan has prepared for this and whether the team can successfully defend the lead. Our prediction is ‘Tie’. This bet has an odd of 3.80 at Circus.

Bayern Munich – Manchester City

Bayern Munich

Manchester City

Opportunities are subject to change. Last updated Apr 17, 2023 10:38 am.

The first meeting between Bayern and City was nothing short of spectacular. In the first 65 minutes it went up and down and both teams had many chances. The pace in this match was so high that your eyes were too short to see everything. Bayern Munich came 1-0 behind with a great goal from Rodri, but nothing seemed to be wrong yet. Then Dayot Upamecano made a mistake that City took advantage of and from then on Bayern Munich lost it completely. Partly due to this mistake by the French defender, City eventually won 0-3. The fact that Bayern did not score once in this match was already a surprise as the team had many opportunities.

Manchester City got off to a slow start this season, but since the winter break the team has been unstoppable. In the Premier League, the team is getting closer to Arsenal and the club also seems invincible in the Champions League. City won last week, partly due to an error by Upamecano, but just before that, Julián Álvarez entered the field and City’s tactics changed a bit. From the moment the Argentinian entered the field, things went wrong for Bayern. Álvarez caused unrest in the back of Bayern Munich by chasing it hard.

In the Premier League, City won 3-1 against Leicester City. The team was already leading 3-0 at half-time, so that Erling Haaland, who had scored twice, and John Stones were already taken to the side to give them a rest. Moments later, Kevin De Bruyne and Rodri were also substituted for the match in Munich.

Prediction Bayern Munich – Manchester City

Bayern Munich has to play full on the attack in this match. There is no other way than that it will be another spectacular match. City’s lead seems unbridgeable, but you never know with Bayern Munich. All in all, a lot of goals seem to be coming as Bayern will play with a lot of risk. Tip: Betting on ‘More than 2.5 Goals’. This bet has an odd of 1.58 at Unibet.

Internazionale – Benfica

Giuseppe Meazza

Champions League Final Stage

Opportunities are subject to change. Last updated Apr 16, 2023 9:52 PM.

Simone Inzaghi’s team managed to surprise against Benfica last week. The Portuguese were the favorites for the game, but Internazionale managed to win 2-0. Nicolò Barella and Romelu Lukaku were the two goalscorers for Inter. Inzaghi managed to sprinkle sand in Benfica’s machine, so that the Portuguese did not actually play football. Inter then managed to take advantage of the few opportunities the club created.

Looking at Inter’s form, it is strange that the team managed to win at all. In Serie A, the last win was on March 5 and last weekend they lost 0-1 to PhD candidate Monza. It seems that all the club’s focus is on the Champions League at the moment.

In the group stage of the Champions League, Benfica impressed by beating Juventus and eventually finishing above Paris Saint-Germain. After that, Club Brugge was put aside quite easily and now Inter seemed to be a new victim. However, the players did not hit a marble against the Italians and are now 2-0 behind. The moment Benfica’s machine starts running, a comeback should still be possible, but Italian teams usually do not give away a lead quickly. After the defeat against Inter, Benfica also lost in the competition. The team seemed to be whistling champion, but due to two defeats in a row in the competition, Porto suddenly comes close again.

Prediction Internazionale – Benfica

Inter is the bookmaker’s favorite for this game. Both teams are not in shape, but Internazionale has the advantage that ‘only’ a lead has to be defended. Benfica will play very offensively and Inter naturally hopes to take advantage of this. The moment Benfica’s machine starts running again, Internazionale will have a hard time. Hence the prediction ‘Benfica wins’. This bet has an odd of 3.55 at Unibet.
