‘The second leg will be an interesting one,’ Berbatov told Betfair.
‘Seeing how Chelsea have progressed under Tuchel, I think they have a great chance go to to the final. ‘But the same goes for Real Madrid. This season people have spoken about them being in a crisis but bam, they are in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
‘For me it’s another even tie, but I’m slightly favouring Chelsea in this one to be honest.
‘Benzema’s goal in the first leg was unreal and it shows how underrated he is. He is Real Madrid’s main goal scorer, he is a leader going forward, always looking to create chances and control the game.
‘I’m a big admirer of his and he is the main man for them and Chelsea will need to keep an eye on him.’
