Wednesday 04 April 2012 at 10:19
Barcelona await the winners of Chelsea v Benfica and the OLBG Tipsters seem to think Chelsea are all but through to the Champions League Semi Finals in the knowledge that even a draw is enough to see them progress against Benfica at Stamford Bridge tonight after their 1-0 win in Portugal.
Chelsea Almost Guaranteed To Progress
A total of 87% of OLBG Tipsters think that Chelsea will either win or draw at Stamford Bridge tonight and the majority of that 87% have gone for another win for Chelsea, at the time of writing 80.3% have backed Chelsea to win this match at 3/4 with Stan James whilst just 6.7% of OLBG Tipsters have gone for the draw at 14/5 with SkyBet and Boylesports. One of the OLBG Tipsters who is most confident about a Chelsea win tonight is welshie1:
“Benfica kept their titles hopes alive by ending Braga's great run in Portugal this past weekend, but their Champions League hopes will end in London on Wednesday night. I fancied Benfica in the first leg, but they struggled and Chelsea claimed a massive 1-0 win. On Saturday they bossed Aston Villa for all but five minutes as they claimed a 4-2 win, with Fernando Torres once again showing signs of improved form. His return to form is massive, especially as they could be missing Drogba here. David Luiz is the other injury doubt, but the fact Gary Cahill will slot in if he's out, gives me plenty of confidence in Di Matteo's Blues.”
A Narrow High Scoring Win For Chelsea Predicted
That leaves just 13% of OLBG Tipsters who are predicting a shock here with an away win and those 13% of tipsters are getting decent odds on their tips, Benfica are 9/2 with Paddy Power and William Hill. Apart from the match outright odds, one of the most popular markets for this game on the OLBG Tipster Competition has been Total Goals and the tipsters seem pretty confident that there will be plenty of goals in this match as 85.7% have backed over 2.5 goals at 10/11 with Stan James and William Hill. The correct score betting has also been popular for this match and the most tipped up result here is 2-1 for Chelsea and that looks a fairly likely result, 18.8% of tipsters have gone for that outcome at 15/2 with SkyBet and Coral.
