Betting Tip: Draw
These two will be facing off in Istanbul in a few weeks time for the Champions League final and it’s no surprise given the high performance levels both have shown in the last few months. Both have shown strong defensive resolve and it’s no surprise the bookies anticipate a low scoring affair with under 2.5 goals trading at around 4/6.
It’s going to be interesting to see if any curveballs are being thrown by either manager, something to make them second guess what may happen in the final. City have all but wrapped up the title already so don’t be surprised to see Pep tinker with his formation slightly. Chelsea are still in pursuit of a top four spot but know even a draw here keeps that possibility in their hands.
With little to split the sides in their current guise, and with both playing midweek it could be a rather tight affair and given unders is chalked up so short my eyes have turned to the draw at 13/5, a more than respectable price which will ideally suit both parties too, you’d imagine.
Manchester City vs Chelsea Odds
Both of these teams will be in a buoyant mood given their European success but the bookies have Manchester City as favourites with odds of 1/1.
