Chelsea vs Arsenal | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Chelsea and Arsenal, the local rivals will fight for a European trophy. We haven’t seen that very much throughout the history of European football. These two rivals know one another very well, and they have nothing to hide anymore. It is because of this that all the fans around the globe expect to see a fantastic match. For Maurizio Sarri this is the ultimate chance to keep his job at Stamford Bridge and to make this season a good one. On the other side, Emery wants to win his first trophy with Arsenal, who is waiting to lift the Europan trophy for 25 years.
Match Preview Chelsea vs Arsenal
Chelsea finished third in the Premiership, and after a good start, this came as a disappointing result for the management, who hoped at least to see one domestic trophy. On the other hand, this has been a disastrous season for the Gunners who were looking to bounce back to the Champions League after several years of skipping the most prominent football competition in Europe.
Sarri is under heavy pressure. He needs to win this one, yet his team is in a bad position. Several injuries massacred his lineup, and two of the players who were in excellent shape are ruled out for this event, Hudson-Odoi, and Loftus-Cheek. To make it even worse the latter one picked up an injury during a friendly match against the New England Revolution. The Blues were playing this season with a lot of oscillations and it at one point they weren’t very popular among the punters. However, Chelsea ended the campaign with only one loss in 10 games, including the international matches. Five in the latest six saw moderate efficiency, 2 or 3 goals.
A draw against Brighton was the major blow for this team. If that didn’t happen, they would be placed ahead of Tottenham, and the ticket for the Champions League would have ended up in their hands. Now the Gunners will have to take the hard way to earn another one. Their previous four games all saw both teams to score, and only one in the last seven saw under 2.5 scores. It is the absolute confirmation that this team has excellent attack and a fragile defense which often handed over the points to the rivals throughout the season.

N’Golo Kante is ready, which is very important. Antonio Rudiger, Hudson-Odoi, Loftus-Cheek and Danny Drinkwater won’t play. On the other side, Danny Welbeck is back in training, but for sure we can’t expect him in Baku. Aaron Ramsey also, while Bellerin, Denis Suarez and Rob Holding are long gone from the protocol.

Expert Betting Tip
We are convinced that this final will witness at least three goals. Both head-to-head games this season saw many chances and were exciting. That simply forces us to bet on high efficiency. Have in mind that both Chelsea and Arsenal don’t have some tight and strong defenses and that the difference between the strikers and defenders is very big. Besides over 2.5 goals, we would suggest betting on both teams to score. As for the winner, Chelsea has a small edge, and it is only because of Eden Hazard who will probably play his last game with the Blues and has a huge motive to end his stint in London with a massive achievement. Hazard is the dominant force on the court, and Arsenal can’t stop the Belgian international. Final word, Chelsea – Arsenal 2:1.
