20/04: Daily Predictions: Manchester City vs Chelsea

Betting Tips

This week marked the end of Manchester City’s pursuit of back-to-back trebles, and now they must strive to get back up for a crucial FA Cup semi-final match at Wembley against an increasingly formidable Chelsea. Following their loss to Real Madrid on penalties, Pep Guardiola’s team was unable to retain their hold on the Champions League.
After a disappointing season, Chelsea may now see some light at the end of a very long tunnel.

Manchester City vs Chelsea

Manchester City and Chelsea’s FA Cup semi-final matchup at Wembley this weekend promises to be tantalizing.

Three days before this match, the Citizens’ ambitions of winning a treble were crushed at the Etihad Stadium by Real Madrid in the Champions League quarterfinals. Despite losing 4-3 on penalties and being eliminated from the competition, Manchester City is still very much in the running to win the double. The opposition this Saturday, Chelsea FC, hasn’t always been simple to defeat this season, either.

Chelsea has gone eight games without a loss since falling to Liverpool 0-1 in the EFL Cup final (five victories and three draws). In addition to their recent 6-0 hammering of Everton in the Premier League, the Blues will also take heart from the fact that they have won both of their league meetings with the Citizens so far this year.

As they frequently do, Manchester City looks to be finding their groove this season and maybe peaking at the ideal time. Even though Chelsea has put City on the verge in their two meetings thus far this season, the Sky Blues are not assured of victory in this one. But for now, Pep Guardiola’s club is playing better than Chelsea, which means they should win at Wembley against the London team.

Verdict

With a 6-0 thrashing of Everton on Monday night, Chelsea put on a compelling show and finally showed some of the lack of consistency. Chelsea’s lone league loss during their current winning streak was an extra-time loss to Liverpool in the Carabao Cup Final. Chelsea has been unbeaten since the beginning of February.

The Blues will be itching to avenge their Wembley horror, when they were loudly criticized and called out for choking during their defeat to Liverpool’s youth team. Now would be a fantastic time to make amends and add some serious shine to a forgettable season with a memorable performance.

This season, City’s defense has been one of their vulnerabilities. The Citizens have given up more goals than any of the top three teams in the Premier League, and they haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last five games. Out of those games, just one had fewer than 2.5 goals scored.

Chelsea’s recent games have been an absolute pleasure for spectators. The Blues scored two or more goals in each of their last eight games, and I don’t see that trend changing this weekend. There were four goals or more in each of the eight games.
