Manchester City and Chelsea are set to face each other on Matchday 22 of the AFL. Full statistics and all odds for the match can be found at 1xbet nigeria.
Manchester City are confident of getting away with it
It’s hard to imagine that Manciti will miss out on the title this season, the club is 10 points ahead of the nearest pursuer, showing a high level of football. The Citizens were frankly lucky in the last round against Arsenal on the road, as the team was losing both in score and in terms of play. First, they tied the score with a controversial penalty, then the opponents were penalized, and in the end they were lucky to win 2-1. Guardiola will certainly not be praising his men for this game. His team played their last match in the FA Cup, where they beat a modest Swindon Town 4-1 on the road. The Citizens have three staffing losses ahead of this meeting, but not critical.
Chelsea need time to recover
The London club could not keep up the pace of Manciti, so they are only second in the APL, 10 points behind, the Aristocrats could be ahead of Liverpool, who are one point away and have a game to spare. In the last round of the championship, Tuchel’s side drew a battling draw against the aforementioned Liverpool at home, 2-2. Since then, the club has played three meetings, defeated Tottenham twice in the League Cup, making it to the final of the tournament, and also easily defeated Chesterfield in the FA Cup – 5-1. With such a busy schedule, it will be difficult for the players to recover physically before this battle. Four players will not be able to help the team in this clash.
In the first round, the Citizens managed a well-deserved away win 1-0, Guardiola’s charges looked better, controlling the game.
Once again, Guardiola and Tuchel will try to outwit each other with tactical build-ups and unexpected decisions. We are not expecting an open head-to-head game, it will be a chess game, where no one wants to make mistakes. We’d like to see a total of less than 3 goals as an attractive bet. We can also think about a clean win for the home team.
