Chelsea vs Leicester: Predictions and Betting Tips
At the start of the season, not many thought Chelsea would reach May in the Champions League and FA Cup final. Obviously, the credit goes to the whole squad and manager, including Frank Lampard during his time in charge this season and now to Tuchel, who has given the team a new lease of life.
To reach the final, Chelsea had to overpower the following teams: Morecambe, Luton Town, Barnsley, Sheffield United and Manchester City in the semi-finals.
Chelsea is going for their ninth FA Cup, the last time they won it was in the 2017/18 season and they were finalists last season but lost to Arsenal.
Leicester have had a magnificent season in the Premier League and could end the season on a high by winning this tournament for the first time in their history.
To reach the final, Leicester had to defeat the following teams: Stoke City, Brentford, Brighton, Manchester United and Southampton.
The main factor in Leicester’s favour is the excitement and motivation to win this title for the first time in their history, but against them is the inexperience of playing finals that Chelsea has.
- Seven straight games unbeaten in all competitions for Chelsea; five wins and two draws
- In their last seven matches, Chelsea has only conceded two goals
- Three wins, three losses and one draw for Leicester in their last seven matches
- In the only meeting between the two teams this season so far, Leicester won 2-0.
Chelsea vs Leicester Predictions
Chelsea is currently one of the best teams. Mentally they are very strong and very motivated to win the Champions League and the FA Cup, and in terms of play, the arrival of Tuchel has made them a very solid team, especially in defense, as they are a team that concedes almost nothing to their opponents. Of course, Leicester can win this game, but we see Chelsea as the favorites.
In terms of goals, we don’t think the teams will risk too much, so we predict a game with few chances in which details will make the difference.
