As Chelsea welcomes Newcastle to Stamford Bridge, the terrible season of the Blues finally comes to an end.
The Blues will complete the season with their lowest points total in Premier League history. This is depending on other events on the final day, they might finish 14th in the standings. In the 10 games he has managed, Frank Lampard has only secured one victory.
To cap off a fantastic season, Newcastle can play freely in west London knowing that they will participate in the Champions League. They will want to offer their fans one last wonderful day.
When Juventus and Milan square off in the Serie A rivalry at Allianz Stadium, there will be fireworks. The Rossoneri had little trouble defeating Sampdoria 5-1, moving their club closer to the Champions League spots, although Atalanta and Roma are still on their tails. The odds of “The Old Lady” making the Champions League are limited because they were penalized 10 points for financial mismanagement.
Chelsea vs Newcastle
In their previous twelve Premier League contests, the Blues have only recorded one victory. They have only been able to complete one game during that time without giving up a goal, which demonstrates how bad their defense has been lately.
But going into this match, we anticipate Frank Lampard’s team to capitalize on Newcastle United’s previous struggles at Stamford Bridge, where they have suffered nine losses in their last nine league contests.
Speaking of the opposition, the Magpies tied Leicester City 0-0 earlier this week to ensure a top-four finish for the first time in 20 years. This season, Eddie Howe’s team has been unbeatable at St. James’ Park, but the fact that they have only dropped three of their eighteen away games indicates that they are having a fantastic year.
They have done so in the exact opposite manner from Chelsea. They have avoided the temptation to pour money into a bottomless pit despite having a larger financial pool to draw from, have structure at the club, and, of course, have hired Eddie Howe as a strong manager.
If they won and Manchester United drew or lost, they might still go up to third, so they have motivation.
Newcastle defeated Chelsea by a score of 1-0 in November at St. James’ Park, despite the Geordies’ dismal track record at Stamford Bridge.
They haven’t won there in their past 10 outings, and in four of their last five journeys to west London, they haven’t scored either.
Even if Newcastle has a terrible record against Chelsea at this venue, that was then and this is now. With Chelsea still missing nine players due to injury and their confidence undoubtedly at an all-time low, Newcastle must be supported to put a stop to the Blues’ wretched season.
Newcastle United had just one loss in their previous seven games in all competitions, which came against Arsenal, and they have not lost away to any team presently in the bottom half of the table. Chelsea, on the other hand, has won just once in their previous 12 games overall.

Juventus vs AC Milan
Juventus’ season has been difficult. Juventus was once more penalized by the Italian court on Monday, pushing them back outside of the top four. In its last four games in all competitions, Juventus only managed to win one. They were defeated by Empoli 4-1 on the road in the previous game. In this game, the home team performed far better, hence Juventus lost.
Serie A was won by AC Milan last year. Although Stefano Pioli’s club didn’t perform at that level this season, they are on track to finish in the top four and compete in the Champions League the following year. Three of the previous four games played by AC Milan have ended in defeat. They defeated Sampdoria 5-1 at home in the previous encounter.
Juve’s head coach, Allegri, got himself into a sticky situation after Juve’s defeats to Sevilla and, in particular, Empoli. The locker room is negative because there are rumors coming out of Italy that he could leave the squad at the conclusion of the season.
Due to the potential absence of Dusan Vlahovic, this pressure is heightened. To be honest, Juve’s performance has suffered in a few instances as a result of Allegri’s decisions to utilize Vlahovic less frequently than many would want.
Milan is a poor driver. The major cause of this team’s recent struggles is that they have only succeeded twice in 13 games. For the time being, Rossoneri’s previous five road trips had resulted in zero victories.
Everyone is thinking about the always-happy Leao right now. The 23-year-old Portuguese had a respectable World Cup run, but what makes his season noteworthy is how he performed while wearing the AC Milan jersey.
He has been outstanding for the Rossoneri in the 2022–23 Serie A season, scoring 12 goals, outscoring a goal-scoring machine-like Giroud. He is not just a superb finisher, but this season, his teammates received 10 assists thanks to his lung-bursting sprints down the wings. These incredible stats are unmatched by any other player. Sandro Tonali is in second with seven assists.
Our most important Juventus vs. AC Milan prediction favors the visitors. The advantages of playing at home are undeniable, but this season, the Old Lady hasn’t performed very well at Allianz Stadium. Or at all constant. Just take a look at their previous game, a humiliating 4-1 loss to mediocre Empoli.
Additionally, Juventus lacks the support of head-to-head records. The Rossoneri won three of the remaining eight matches, the Old Lady won one, and there were four ties.

Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
