Manchester City vs Chelsea champions league cup predictions

The Premier League is the strongest championship in recent years. Since the 2016/2017 season (with the exception of last season), English clubs have regularly reached the European Cup finals. So, in 2017, Manchester United won the Europa League, being stronger than Ajax (2-0), and in 2018, Liverpool lost to Real Madrid (1-3) in the Champions League final. The 2018/2019 season in general turned out to be unique, because Chelsea and Arsenal fought for the title in the Europa League (the Blues won a big victory with a score of 4-1), and Liverpool won the Champions League, beating Tottenham with a score of 2-0.Against the background of such achievements, last season can be considered a failure, only the Manchester teams showed a decent result: MU reached the semi-finals of the Europa League, and MS – to the 1/4 final of the Champions League. This season, the English giants have improved, and only Villarreal prevented making the European Cup finals purely English, beating Arsenal in the semi-finals of the Europa League.

On Saturday, May 29, at 18:00, at the Dragau in Porto, Manchester City will face Chelsea in the next English Champions League final.

Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Manchester City vs Chelsea

Manchester City

Strengths: free kicks, scoring chances, defending with standards.
Weaknesses: fighting in the air.

The current season, of course, can be considered a success for the "citizens", because they confidently won the domestic championship (for the 3rd time in the last 4 seasons), took the League Cup and for the first time in their history reached the final of the Champions League without losing a single match. At the group stage, they conceded only one goal, and lost points only in the away game against Porto (0-0). In the 1/8 final, Manchester City easily dealt with Borussia Monchengladbach (two wins with a score of 2-0), and in the 1/4 final twice beat Borussia Dortmund with a score of 2-1 (at the Etihad, the victory was snatched in compensated time, and at the Signal Iduna Park, Guardiola's team won a strong-willed victory, scoring two goals in the second half). In the semi-finals, the "citizens" without any problems defeated PSG (2-1 in Paris and 2-0 in Manchester), having played poorly only in the first half of the away meeting.

Interestingly, in the TOP 10 scorers of the Champions League this season, there is not a single player of the "citizens", despite 25 goals scored. The best performance indicator for the team leader is Kevin de Bruyne (3 goals and 4 assists), Marez and Torres scored 4 goals each, and Foden showed an excellent result – 3 goals and 3 assists.


Strengths: flank attack, standards.
Weaknesses: avoiding offside.

At the end of January 2021, Thomas Tuchel was appointed head coach of Chelsea, replacing Frank Lampard. Such changes have benefited the team: a winless streak of 14 matches (10 wins and 4 draws), the FA Cup final (0-1 defeat by Leicester), the fight for 3rd place in the Premier League and, of course, reaching the Champions League final.

At the stage of the group stage of the LCH, the "blues" conceded only two goals, and easily entered the playoffs from the first place. In the 1/8 finals, we were surprisingly easy to deal with Atletico (1-0 away and 2-0 at home), and in the 1/4 finals, Porto were not without problems (2-0 and 0-1). In the semi-final, the "aristocrats" stopped not someone, but Real Zidane, playing very well tactically: 1-1 in Madrid and 2-0 in London. On the way to the final, Chelsea scored 22 goals. Giroud scored 6 goals, the third goal of the tournament.

Game Totals Prediction

The English Champions League final promises to be a real gift for any football fan. The last such holiday is remembered by the rainy "Luzhniki", who gave the "big-eared" Manchester United. And it is noteworthy that then Chelsea was also in the finalists, which can be a symbolic continuation of history.

Manchester City looks almost invulnerable. The team became the champion of England ahead of schedule, and now plans to win the Champions League title for the first time in history. And there is a feeling that she will be able to achieve what she wants this season. First, Pep Guardiola has finally matured, who has stopped experimenting unnecessarily at a key moment, and relies exclusively on proven fighters. Secondly, the leaders of the team are in a phenomenal state – Gundogan, Sterling, Marez and De Bruyne are ready to tear apart any defensive line.

Chelsea has undergone a qualitative transformation since Tuchel's arrival. The main advantage of "pensioners" is the high-quality defense of their own possessions. But it is unlikely that the defensive line will be able to completely cover the dangerous attackers of the "citizens". But the Chelsea attack is still failing, and Werner is becoming the main loser of the season. He manages to miss from the most advantageous positions, constantly gets into the offside position. With this component, "pensioners" will definitely have problems.

There is confidence that Manchester City will finally be able to show itself in all its glory, will become the owner of the coveted title. Chelsea will show decent resistance, but will stop a step away from the trophy. The fight just has to be intense. And the teams will definitely not be revealed. Therefore, a total of less than 2.5 goals for 1.63 looks like an excellent option for betting. Download 1xbet and make bet on your favorite!
