Chelsea v Leicester prediction and betting, stats, odds. In the championship match in England on May 19, the “blues” will play against the “city”. Who will be the winner in this duel?
Chelsea made it through the UEFA Champions League group stage this season before knocking Lille out in the first leg. The second leg was already the last one, as the encounter with Real Madrid resulted in a defeat in extra time.
The capital city side made their way confidently through the English League Cup and the FA Cup, where they reached the final. But they lost both decisive games, losing twice in a penalty shoot-out to Liverpool.
In the Premier League championship, Thomas Tuchel’s side have scored 20 wins and 10 peaceful results in 36 games, which have brought them 70 points and third place. The gap to fourth-placed Tottenham is just two points. The attacking line, which has differed 73 times, looks good. After a 2-2 draw with Wolverhampton, the Pensioners beat Leeds 3-0 away.
Chilliell, Hudson-Odoi and Havertz, who has a knee injury, cannot play today.
Leicester opened the season confidently, with their first game in the FA Super Cup final bringing victory over Manchester City and that prestigious trophy. The team progressed confidently through the Conference League standings, where the Citizens managed to qualify for the play-offs. The spring stage brought Brendan Rodgers’ side success against Randers, Rennes and PSV. In the semi-finals of the new UEFA club competition, the Foxes failed to beat Roma, who lost 1-2 on aggregate.
Leicestershire’s poor showing in the FA Cup, where the then reigning winners of the trophy lost early on to League Two side Nottingham Forest (1-4), came to a disappointing end.
In the Premier League after 36 rounds, the Blues have recorded 13 wins and nine draws, bringing their total to 48 points and ninth place in the table. In the last two rounds, the visitors beat Norwich (3-0) and Watford (5-1).
Bertrand, Ndidi and Pereira cannot play today.
“Leicester” already has no claim to anything this season and has no tournament motivation, unlike the hosts, who need a victory in order to finally consolidate the third position and please their fans with a home win. In our opinion, the Pensioners will pull themselves together tonight and get the next three points from the support of the stands and the class of the players.
