Red Devils no longer dream of the Champions League
Manchester United are making their large army of fans very sad, as the club is very likely not even to qualify for the Champions League. “The Red Devils are in poor form, with just one win in five AFL meetings. The last round was an away defeat to direct top-four rivals Arsenal, 1-3. The team trails only sixth in the league, six points behind the top-four and having played one game more than their rivals. Four players will miss the upcoming battle due to injuries.
Chelsea look good
The London club is third in the APL, far from the leaders, and the gap from the nearest pursuer is 5 points, with one game to spare. In the last round, Chelsea managed to snatch a 1-0 win against West Ham in the derby, with the only goal coming in the 90th minute. Tuchel’s side also have a chance of winning a trophy as the team will play in the FA Cup final against Liverpool. “The Aristocrats have five personnel losses ahead of the upcoming battle.
As the statistics show, the rivals love to play in draws, with this being the outcome of the last three meetings in the championship. In the first round, the clubs drew 1-1, exchanging goals in the second half.
In a battle with a spectacular poster, bookmakers give a minimal advantage to the visitors, after all in terms of play, Chelsea look better. The Red Devils must fight in every game. We expect a back-and-forth game and bet on goalscoring.
