Chelsea – Man City, League Cup Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR CHELSEA - MAN CITY
Logically, Chelsea played with less power against Malmö on Thursday, although we saw quite a few 1st team players and a classic victory. Sarri’s time is running out and if he doesn’t win this cup, the probability of sacking is enormous. It is now constantly being said that the Italian, in fact, has no trophy in his career and his greatest achievement is the getting a team in the next division. Chelsea was smashed by City with 6-0 and is now their only chance to show that they have learned from their mistakes.
Sure, City will look with one eye on the big English derby between United and Liverpool, which ends just before their final with Chelsea. The citizens come after a great victory against Schalke, because the match had a red card for Otamendi and two comebacks. City won 3-2 and again demonstrated their class, but on the other hand, Guardiola’s team sometimes gets into situations, where there is no idea how to break the enemy defense. This happened several times during the season. For now, it is not fatal, but it is important and can cause problems in the future.
We expect much more than Chelsea. If there is a match in which they can show their abilities, then this is the one against City. If the blues win the cup, then the whole season can turn over. Yes, they lost in the FA Cup bitterly at Stamford Bridge against a big rival, but are still in the fight in three tournaments. It is normal to expect City to score goals, cause the citizens do it so often, so our prediction is Over 2.5 goals at 1.75. However, this is a final and often there should be dynamics and quick attacks.
- In 14 of the last 16 City games there were over 2.5 goals
- In 7 of the last 8 Chelsea games has had Over 2.5 goals
