In the national championship the team of Thomas Tuchel is also in a difficult position. To accurately guarantee itself a place in the top four, the London club must definitely win the two remaining rounds. At the moment, the "retirees" are in fourth position in the Premier League standings. They have 63 points to their credit. Chelsea are now two points behind the third Leicester and one point ahead of fifth Liverpool.
The London club put itself in such a situation, when in the last round of the championship it lost to Arsenal in the home arena (0:1). It was not possible to save energy for the FA Cup final, but the “retirees” may well be overboard in the Champions League. It must be said that Tuchel's charges suffered a defeat from the Gunners in their home arena, where in the last four league matches they managed to beat only Fulham (2:0). In addition to the failure in the match against Arsenal, the Londoners unexpectedly lost loudly to West Bromwich (2: 5) during this period and ended in a draw with Brighton (0:0). In all, Chelsea won eight times in 18 home games in the Premier League, drew six and lost four.
The London club has no personnel losses at all.
However, in the current championship Brendan Rogers' wards are now in a difficult situation. Leicesters are currently third in the Premier League. They have 66 points to their credit. Leicester are four points behind Manchester United. The Foxes are just two points ahead of Chelsea and three points ahead of Liverpool. However, if they lose this round, they risk ending up in fifth place if Liverpool win in a side-by-side match. The leader will be determined by the difference between the scored goals conceded. Although the fate of the fourth line may be decided in the final round, in which Leicester hosts Tottenham.
At the same time, Brendan Rogers' charges are playing well this season. In the last round at a party, they defeated Manchester United (2:1). This is the 11th victory for the Leicestershire team in 18 away games in the current championship. In another five they drew and suffered only two defeats from Liverpool (0:3) and West Ham (2:3). Overall, Leicester has the third best away game in the current championship in England.
Midfielder Harvey Barnes and defenders James Justin, Johnny Evans will not play this season due to long-term injuries.
Our prediction is a victory for Chelsea for 1.77 in BC 1xBet.
It is unlikely that we will see many goals in this meeting. The match is fundamental, so the cost of a mistake is high. Both teams know how to play reliably on the defensive.
Second bet is for “both to score no” for 1.80.
