uclratings.jpg

The Champions League Final is coming up later this month and it will be contested between two English Premier League clubs in Manchester City and Chelsea. The venue is still yet to be decided with the original destination of Istanbul being brought into question due to Turkey being put on the restricted travel list for UK citizens. Suggestions are that talks are ongoing between the FA and UEFA to have the game moved to be played at Wembley Stadium. Anyway, here are the odds and ratings. Give us any predictions or bets you're placing on the big game right here! :ok

Manchester City

It is the first time for them to play for the final of UEFA Champions League. They play so well this season that they have never suffered any defeat yet. And they even get six-match winning streak. They are looking good for a shot at the title.

 

Chelsea

They are more experienced that Man City as they won the champion of the League in 2011-2012 season. In addition, Thomas Tuchel has led PSG and Chelsea coming to the final of the League continuously, which is the one with luck and strategy.

 

Verdict:

Both of them are in form and make great preparation for upcoming game. Manchester City are good at offensive. Chelsea play well on defensive. It is predicted the game will end with a draw in 90 minutes.

 

Goals in Match: 2-3 goals

 

😎 Of Course Man City

A quick summary of the RP's thoughts on the game.

The main preview by James Milton tips City to win and <3.5 goals at 11/8 and Foden 1st scorer at 13/2 (I saw 7/1 somewhere). 

Milton also look at specials and tips Dias to be Man of the Match at 20/1 with 365 and >10.5 corners at 8/5 (I saw 7/4 with Uni)

Mark Langdon tips Azpilicueta to be carded at 11/4 (it's 3/1 with Uni)

Kevin Pullein muses on same country finals, one point of interest being that it doesn't tend to make for higher than average card totals.

Bets I've taken so far while browsing the markets (bear in mind I allow myself a few "fun" bets on big games like this):

3.5 points on De Bruyne to score and assist at 14/1 PP

10 points on De Bruyne to assist and to have a shot on target from outside the area at 13/2 PP

4 points on Dias to be Man of the Match at 20/1 365 (RP tip as per above)

No doubt be a goalscorer bet or two; De Bruyne, Foden and Chilwell all on the radar.

Manchester City vs Chelsea

Manchester City dominantly won the Premier League, despite having a slow start. Pep Guardiola’s side finished 12 points ahead of Manchester United, and since the beginning of 2021, they were holding the top spot firmly. Ilkay Gundogan and the lads have been clinical in front of the oppositions’ net, while their defense was very disciplined. The Citizens wrapped up the Premier League campaign with a convincing 5:0 victory over Everton and built the confidence to the maximum. After eliminating two Borussia sides, Manchester City faced a tough challenge against PSG. However, they didn’t have too many difficulties and booked a place in the finals with a 4:1 aggregate win. Manchester City finally got a chance to fight for the most valuable trophy, and they will look forward to grabbing it.

On the other hand, Chelsea’s form has been on a decline lately, and Thomas Tuchel will have something to worry about ahead of this clash. The Blues lost three times on the previous four occasions, and this is undoubtedly not good timing for a struggle. Timo Werner and the lads secured a Champions League place through the Premier League, though they were fortunate. After losing to Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea missed a chance to win the FA Cup. They managed to avenge Leicester City in the Premier League, though, and leave them out of the top four. However, a 2:1 defeat against Aston Villa in the closing round rang the alarm in Chelsea’s locker room. The Blues need to be disciplined as they were against Real Madrid in the semi-finals, and like in previous clashes against Manchester City earlier this season.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

These matches are always hard to predict, as the stake is high, and teams have a single chance to lift the trophy. Despite losing twice in a row against the Blues, Manchester City has been more confident lately, and we believe they will celebrate their first Champions League title.

Goals Market Prediction

The Citizens have been lethal for the oppositions’ goalkeepers lately, but they would probably go with a bit more cautious approach in this game. If Chelsea tightens up its backline, we might see a low-scoring encounter with two goals in total at most.

Under 2.5 FT @ 1.70

Correct score 1:0 @ 6.00

Both Guardiola and Tuhel will know better than anyone else that the form comes out theoretically when you reach the Champions League final, which should give the Londoners hope that they could celebrate a European trophy at the end of the night.

Manchester City has had a history of failure on the European stage and the pressure has been on since the beginning of the year. The team from London will not go down raising a white flag, but we support Guardiola to end his match waiting for the European success with the giants of Manchester. I expect the defenses to star and the under 2.5, it has significant luck, but in the end Manchester City to lift the trophy

Manchester City vs Chelsea

The greatest showpiece event in the European club football calendar comes at us on Saturday evening when Manchester City and Chelsea go toe-to-toe in the 2020/21 Champions League Final in an 8pm BST kick-off from the Estadio do Dragao in Porto. History will be made one way or another tonight as these two English football giants aim to win the biggest prize in the club game.

Manchester City are on the verge of creating history for the club with the team aiming to win the first Champions League trophy. Pep Guardiola is a two-time winner of the trophy himself but has so far failed to lift it with a team other than Barcelona. The Citizens have already been crowned the 2020/21 Premier League champions and won the EFL Cup earlier in the season so this is an opportunity to win a treble of sorts. They are so far undefeated in this competition navigating their way through a group including Porto, Marseille, and Olympiakos before disposing of Borussia Monchengladbach, Borussia Dortmund, and PSG in the knockout rounds. It is 51 years since City last appeared in a major European final when they beat Polish side Gornik Zabrze 2-1 in the 1970 Cup Winners' Cup Final. Interestingly, City may possess a lucky charm within their team. Bernardo Silva has gone undefeated in this competition with City since playing in a 2-1 loss to Lyon back in 2018 in a run that stretches 26 matches.

Chelsea have perhaps surprised a few people by reaching this final. Head coach Thomas Tuchel has done a cracking job at tightening things up within the team. The Blues qualified for next season's Champions League through the Premier League but did suffer a disappointing FA Cup Final defeat to Leicester. A win here would certainly end the season on a high that probably very few Chelsea fans saw happening at about Christmas time. The London club qualified through a group including Sevilla, Krasnodar, and Rennes before beating Atletico Madrid, Porto, and Real Madrid in the knockout rounds. Tuchel will be keen to avenge last season's final defeat he endured as PSG manager against Bayern Munich. Chelsea will also be keen to become European champions for the first time since their 2012 success.

This will be just the third time the Champions League Final has been contested by two English clubs. Liverpool beat Tottenham 1-0 back in 2019 and Manchester United defeated Chelsea 6-5 on penalties after a 1-1 draw after extra-time in 2008. The last team to win the European Cup/ Champions League in their first final appearance was Aston Villa back in 1982 so history isn't on Manchester City's side. Chelsea have also defeated City twice this season already but on both occasions City fielded a slightly weakened team. It just feels like it is Manchester City's time now and I think they'll win it.

Matched for 15 points each on De Bruyne and Foden, both at 4.9. Will have 4 points on Chilwell at 20 or better.

Total blank there! I did decide to note the prices and make ups for the four "Novelty Specials" that SPIN offered. They were as follows.

"Keep the ED" (keepers/penalty related) Price = 17 MU = 0

"Lahozing The Plot" (ref performance related) Price = 120 MU = 56

"The Stockport Iniesta" (Foden performance related) Price = 75 MU = 36

Silva Service (Thiago and Bernado Silva performance related) Price = 90 MU = 41

A profit of 169 points if you'd sold all 4, a loss of 188 if you'd bought them. I do suspect such markets (only offered on bigger games) will be mug bets for buyers. I'll track it if they offer them during the Euros.
