As part of the final match of the FA Cup, the players of Chelsea and Liverpool will clash face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this meeting.
For Chelsea, it was the FA Cup matches that turned out to be the most nervous. In the 1/16 finals, Tuchel's team was able to put the squeeze on the modest Plymouth only in extra time. At the same time, in the main time the team had to recoup. In the next round, the Blues had problems again, but this time the Londoners were able to barely beat Luton Town with a score of 3:2. The opponent scored twice, but eventually lost – 2:3. Then there was a tense match with Middlesbrough in the quarterfinals, and, finally, a confident victory in the duel with Crystal Palace - 2:0.
As for Liverpool, the Reds had to play Manchester City in the semi-finals. However, this time Klopp found the perfect strategy for playing against Guardiola's team, which allowed him to advance to the next round. At that moment, the townspeople were thinking about how to maintain leadership in the Premier League and pass Real Madrid in the Champions League. In general, Liverpool took advantage of the situation and achieved success. In the previous rounds, the team was able to pass Shrewsbury Town, Cardiff City, Norwich and Nottingham Forest.
Statistics and figures:
- Liverpool - the favorite of the meeting;
- Chelsea has a 2-match unbeaten streak;
- Liverpool have not lost for 15 meetings;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a victory for Liverpool in a penalty shootout in the English League Cup.
In this match, it seems to me, we will witness a serious struggle, which will bring a tense course of the duel. Rivals are unlikely to be able to identify the strongest in the main time of the meeting. We are waiting for a draw in 90 allotted minutes.
