Atletico Madrid v Chelsea – Predictions and betting tips

Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea predictions and betting tips for tonight’s Champions League semi-final first leg clash.

Both teams have probably surprised themselves by getting to the Champions League semi-final but now they are here they have a fantastic chance of appearing in the final.

In the Atletico Madrid v Chelsea betting odds for the first leg tonight, Atletico are 9/10 with Ladbrokes to win, the draw is 5/2 at Bet365 and Chelsea are 4/1 to win with Coral.

When looking at tonight’s betting tips the first thing to note is that it is expected to be a close match and Mourinho is likely to go to Spain to keep it tight at the back and try and pinch an away goal on the counter attack. Under 2.5 goals looks the best bet of the match but it is only 11/20 so that’s not enough value to offer as a football tip.

Atletico Madrid’s last five matches have seen two goals or less and away from home three of Chelsea’s last four have ended in a 1-0 scoreline, with four of Atletico Madrid’s last five at home ending in a 1-0 home win. A 1-0 Atletico Madrid win tonight is priced at 5/1 with William Hill.

Given that we expect a cagey first period a bet on the score to be 0-0 at half-time might be worth a punt and that can be found at 6/4 with William Hill.

For a first goalscorer tip in tonight’s Champions League match Diego Costa is the obvious choice for Atletico Madrid and he has already scored seven goals in six matches this season. Diego Costa to score first is our next football betting tip at 9/2 with William Hill.
