THE PREDICTION

Chelsea head to Budapest with a 1-2 lead on aggregate following the first leg of this quarter-final encounter, however an away goal for Wolfsburg keeps them firmly in this tie although they will be without home advantage due to Covid-19 restrictions within Germany. Both sides have maintained their outstanding league form throughout their respective European campaigns and once again very little is expected to separate the two teams. However, with the likes of Australian National Team captain Sam Kerr and England star Fran Kirby within their ranks, Chelsea have the firepower to take advantage of Wolfsburg being forced to push extra bodies forward in a bid to turn this tie around. With that in mind, Chelsea should be favoured draw no bet over the 90 minutes, an outcome which would be enough to see them advance to the semi-finals.
