Bank On Blank For Blues At 3/1

Live on Skysports 2 & 4: Tue 19.45: William Hill make Benfica 7/5 in the Champions League clash with Chelsea, who may not score.

Chelsea suffered a rather comprehensive 3-1 defeat in the away leg at Napoli before mounting a tremendous comeback at Stamford Bridge to reach the quarter final of the Champions League but they will hope to ensure scores are a touch closer when they return to their own patch for the second leg of their last eight clash against Benfica.

Nevertheless, the Portuguese outfit are William Hill’s 7/5 favourites to inflict a first-leg defeat on the Blues in the Estadio da Luz, where Roberto Di Matteo’s charges are 9/4 via BetVictor to come out on top.

chalk 23/10 against a draw, which will undoubtedly lure some but Benfica tend to strong at home in Europe and they can edge this one, Ladbrokes quoting them at 10/3 to shade it by a one-goal margin.

Jorge Jesus’ side meanwhile, have only conceded three goals in six matches in front of their own supporters in the competition this season and with Chelsea arguably looking a touch toothless against Tottenham at the weekend, Stan James’ 13/2 for the hosts to nick it 1-0 appeals. Alternatively, Blue Square mark 3/1 against Benfica winning ‘to nil’.

APOEL Nicosia continue their stunning European campaign with a home clash against Real Madrid but Jose Mourinho’s charges are just 1/20 (Betfred) to end the Cypriot side’s amazing run by eliminating them from the competition.

The La Liga leaders are also just 3/10 at Coral to take a first leg advantage back to the Bernabeu but the spirited hosts won’t simply roll over and Boylesports’ 5/1 for it to finish all square could be worth a modest flutter, especially as Madrid drew their first leg at CSKA Moscow in the last round.

Recommended Bets:
Benfica to beat Chelsea by one – 10/3 (Ladbrokes)
APOEL Nicosia and Real Madrid to draw – 5/1 (Boylesports)
