Manchester City vs Chelsea Betting Tips
The 2021 Champions League final will take place in Istanbul, with Manchester City and Chelsea making it an all-English affair after overcoming Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid respectively at the semi-final stage, with this being a repeat of the recent FA Cup semi-final where Thomas Tuchel’s side triumphed.
Indeed, it’s hard to escape the fact that Chelsea are overpriced considering we’ve got two evenly-matched sides competing for the biggest prize in European club football and our betting tip is to back the London side on the Asian Handicap betting market.
Chelsea Look a Big Price to Win Champions League
It seemed a tall order for Chelsea to get to the business end of the competition when Frank Lampard was in charge and the team were drawn against Spanish league leaders Atletico Madrid, although Tuchel has transformed the squad and they managed to overcome Real Madrid 3-1 on aggregate in the semi thanks to two dominant performances.
The German manager has persevered with a 3-4-3 formation and there have been some stand-out performers in recent weeks such as N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount and Thiago Silva, with the Chelsea defence racking up the clean sheets although they’ll have to be at their best to shut out City.
Manchester City Champions League Favourites in the Betting
Pep Guardiola’s side are on the verge of landing a treble of Champions League, Premier League and EFL Cup, with the Citizens having never won the European Cup in their history and their two performances against Paris Saint-Germain saw them come through the tie with relative ease.
Indeed, they have rarely been troubled in the competition this season although our prediction is that they’ll find it tough to break down a disciplined and hard-working Chelsea side who will feel confident that they can repeat that FA Cup semi-final victory.
