Real Madrid’s president Florentino Perez leads the now on-hold Super League project, and UEFA contemplated to kick them out of the Champions League, but it was too late. Now, Real Madrid is ready to face Chelsea, who’ll be playing the Semifinals for the first time since the 2013-14 season.

Zinedine Zidane’s team road to this stage includes beating Atalanta in the Round of 16 and Liverpool in the Round of 8. Overall, Real Madrid has scored 18 goals, and they own a 4-0-1 record when playing at home, 4-1 against the spread and over/under.

They come from a tough draw against Real Betis in La Liga. Now, winning the Champions League looks like their best shot of not finishing the season trophyless.

Eden Hazard is finally back, but Sergio Ramos, Ferland Mendy, Federico Valverde and Lucas Vasquez remain out due to injury.

Chelsea eliminated Atletico Madrid and Porto, winning the first leg, on the road, in both cases. The “Blues” have scored 19 goals, and they own a perfect 5-0-0 record when playing away from home, 4-0-1 against the spread and 3-1-1 over/under.

They defeated West Ham United last Saturday in the English Premier League to climb to fourth place.

Mateo Kovacic is the only one out due to injury. According to Christian Pulisic, they’re more than ready: “Madrid have their history. They are a great team; it won’t be easy at all. We respect them but also believe in what we stand for and what we can do,said the American midfielder to the press.

The English side leads the all-time series against Real Madrid 2-1-0, but they haven’t faced each other since 1998. I think the first leg ends with a draw (1-1).

Pick: Draw +220

PSG vs Manchester City (Wednesday, April 28)

Manchester City -½ +120 +120 3 -135u 1½ -115o / -115u
Draw +280

 

Despite playing at home, PSG comes in as the online sports betting underdog here, because they own a poor 2-1-2 record when playing at Parc des Princes, while Manchester City remains undefeated 4-1-0 when playing on the road.

PSG is 2-2-1 against the spread and 1-4 over/under at home, while the “Citizens” are 2-2-1 against the spread and 0-3-2 over/under on the road. Overall, each team has scored 21 goals, but PSG has two of the tournament’s top scorers in Kylian Mbappe with eight goals and Neymar with six.

It’s almost impossible to control them during the full 90 minutes,” accepted City’s manager Pep Guardiola.

Manchester City just won the Carabao Cup and will win the English Premier League. PSG is still fighting in the Ligue 1, one point behind Lille with four games to go, and they could also win the French Cup.

Marquinhos is doubtful due to injury, but PSG has plenty of options to replace him. According to the latest Soccer Props, a 2-1 victory for Manchester City is offering a +700 price, while 2-1 for PSG is +900, proving how close this is expected to be.

Manchester City leads the all-time series against PSG 1-1-0, they met for the last time in the 2015-16 Champions League Quarterfinals. Another draw here (2-2).
