class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>A tight game is expected in the Spanish capital on Tuesday evening, which means backing goals from less obvious sources could be a profitable strategy
Chelsea head to the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano on Tuesday with Thomas Tuchel’s men hoping to claim an away goal in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid.
The Blues have scored in each of their last nine away games in the competition, while Real have netted in each of their last 25 home legs of knockout ties in the tournament they have won on 13 occasions.

Real Madrid vs Chelsea Latest Goalscorer odds
The shortest-priced player to score on Tuesday evening is Karim Benzema, the man who has found the back of the net 70 times in Europe’s premier club competition.
Real Madrid’s number nine is offered at 13/10 (2.30) with bet365 in the anytime goalscorers market while he can be backed at 15/4 (4.75) to break the deadlock.
Olivier Giroud comes next in the betting at 7/4 (2.75) to find the back of the net and the Frenchman has scored in both of Chelsea’s trips to Spain this season, netting the only goal of the game at Atletico Madrid and famously racking up four in Seville.
Chelsea’s second top scorer in the tournament is Timo Werner with three strikes, and while he was vital in RB Leipzig’s run to the semi-final last season, he is yet to score in the knockout stages for the Blues.
Vinicius Junior scored twice against Liverpool in the previous round for Real Madrid can be backed at 12/5 (3.40), although he might have more trouble finding spaces in Chelsea’s watertight defence.
Real Madrid vs Chelsea Goalscorer Tips and Predictions
Given the strong defensive form of both teams, there could be some interest in looking at potential scorers from all over the pitch.
Madrid have been reliant on Benzema this term for goals, with their second top-scorer actually being defensive midfielder Casemiro.
The Brazilian has popped up with some vital goals this term and is offered at an extremely healthy looking 6/1 (7.00) to score at any time, which should certainly be of interest for a small wager in what is expected to be a tight game.
