Real Madrid vs Chelsea
It was not only Chelsea that played against Southampton; it was also against Real Madrid in the leg. Multiple star players had off-games simultaneously.
Antonio Rudiger did not win any ground duels and was virtually ineligible defensively. He didn’t make a single block or clearance. Andreas Christensen failed Vinicius Jr. to deal with, and Edouard Mendy, one of the most skilled goalkeepers in the country, made a terrible error on Madrid’s crucial third goal. Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic lost possession 23 times in 86 touches. N’Golo Kante was only 21-touch in the first half and was yanked at the break without any tackle or interception.
Real Madrid was very good, but Chelsea was just as bad or worse. This will not happen again. The defending champions should have better performances.
This game will feature goals again. Both sides have struggled to defend in recent times, but each team has a wealth of offensive riches. Chelsea is pushing for a well-deserved turnaround and there should be opportunities at both ends. This is especially true given the absence of Eder Militao, the suspended Real Madrid starting centre-back. Madrid conceded at most one goal in their three previous home matches, across all competitions. This includes five of seven matches since the beginning of the year. The Bernabeu isn’t as fortress-like as it usually is.

Bayern Munich vs Villarreal
Bayern will not be held scoreless again. Robert Lewandowski, meanwhile, has only managed five non-penalty shots over the three matches since his return from the international break. Bavarians are too good at attacking to be left off the scoreboard. There is real concern about Villarreal’s defense and transitional midfield.
Villarreal would have been more motivated to attack if it had scored multiple goals. Bayern might have even been tempted to stop it. Emery is well aware that 1-0 won’t be enough to get ahead. The club will need a goal, and I anticipate it to be aggressive early on, much like last week.
My projections show the Both Teams to Score (Yes), wager at -140 odds. However, given Bayern’s defensive midfield concerns and injuries to the center-back, this could be even higher. Bavarians will attack home, but Villarreal could counter with a move through the middle via Danjuma.
