Prediction for Man City vs Chelsea
Chelsea looked superb against Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge this past week. They defeated Los Blancos 2-0 in the second leg to secure their spot in the 2021 UCL final.
Meanwhile, Man City made a huge statement to the major players in European soccer with a comfortable 2-0 second-leg win over PSG. It has been a long road to the final for Pep Guardiola, who has done it twice while manager at Barcelona. Man City are also in the midst of another Premier League title win, as they are three points away from lifting the trophy in their next fixture.
Chelsea are looking reinvigorated under new manager Thomas Tuchel, I’m sure any Citizen fan would have preferred to see Real Madrid make it to the finals instead.
Looking at the previous meeting between City and Chelsea, The Blues fought a tactical game and won 1-0 in the FA Cup semi-final.
City are without their defender John Stones, who is currently suspended. Expect Stones to be replaced by Laporte. For Chelsea, Kovacic and Azpilicueta remain the only potential injury concerns.
Manchester City has been a dominant force over the years, going from strength to strength. All of Pep’s hard work has paid off and he finds himself at the Champions League Final, 10 years on from winning his last one. They are up against a familiar team that managed to find all the right moving parts this season.
Expect this match to be a game of inches. Both teams have a solid defence, so when it comes to betting props I would pick the under 2.5 goals to bet on.
With City being such heavy favorites, I am going against the grain here and picking Chelsea as underdogs to win.
