Josep Guardiola's players are approaching the next Saturday match on a wave of five victories in the last official matches. After losing the FA Cup to Chelsea, the Mancunians managed to win the English League Cup, beating Tottenham in the final (1:0), defeating PSG twice in the Champions League (2:1 away and 2:0 at home) and the Premier League managed to beat Aston Villa (2:1) and Crystal Palace (2:0).
The leading position of Manchester City looks unshakable. “Manchester United” “citizens” are already 13 points ahead, even if they played one more meeting. Nevertheless, with a victory over Chelsea in the next match, Josep Guardiola's team can secure the league title ahead of schedule and calmly prepare for the Champions League final. Moreover, the schedule of the remaining tours looks easy. On the road, the Mancunians will play with Needle and Brighton, while at home they will host Everton.
The Manchester City infirmary is empty. Perhaps due to illness, Eric Garcia will miss the game.
In the last stretch of the championship, Chelsea showed good results. In the four previous rounds, the Londoners managed to achieve three victories and one draw. The Pensioners beat Crystal Palace (4:1), West Ham (1:0) and Fulham (2:0).
The team of Thomas Tuchel achieved the first two successes just on the road. On the fields of opponents, they have not lost for seven matches in a row, winning five of them. Overall, Chelsea is fifth in the Premier League in away play. In 17 away matches they won nine wins, drew four times and lost four times. It should be noted that Chelsea played well in defense. In away matches Londoners conceded only 15 goals, only Manchester conceded less.
The team has only one injured player, namely midfielder Mateo Kovacic.
Our prediction is the victory of Manchester City for 1.98 in BC 1xBet.
Both teams concede very little. There are, of course, failures, but in such a duel they will act very carefully in defense.
Second bet is for a total under 2.5 goals per 1.87.
Place a bet on the line of 1xBet with odds of 1.98.
