As Chelsea looks to further consolidate its position within the top 4, it will host a spirited Brentford this weekend, in matchweek 31 of the ongoing English Premier League.
Fresh off its 2-0 win against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup Quarterfinals, Chelsea will be looking to build on its momentum by winning this game. The current European Champions will be hosting Real Madrid for the first leg of the quarterfinals immediately after this game and has a busy schedule over the next couple of weeks.
The team has peaked in performance just at the right time and has won 5 consecutive Premier League matches, including the latest one against Newcastle by a 1-0 margin. The team sits comfortably in the third spot on the points table, 4 points ahead of Arsenal. Despite all the off-field drama regarding the ownership issues, coach Thomas Tuchel has managed to keep his team motivated, and ensured that the on-field performance has not been affected, but rather improved.
Given its current form, most football betting sites are predicting an easy win for the hosts.
After a disastrous start to the New Year, which was threatening to push Brentford into the relegation zone, the team seems to have recovered some of its lost form, by picking up 6 points from the last 3 games. Its two-match winning streak was halted by Leicester in its last outing, after an engaging game that ended 2-1 in favor of the Foxes.
The club is currently sitting in the 15th spot on the points table and looks relatively safe from a relegation threat at this stage. However, with games against higher-ranked teams like Tottenham and Manchester United yet to come up, there is no place for complacency within the Bees’ camp.
Match prediction and betting tips for Chelsea F. C. vs Brentford F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Stamford Bridge Stadium, London, on 2nd April 2022.
The last time that Brentford won against their London neighbors Chelsea was back in 1939. Given the current form of both the teams, it seems highly likely that the Bees will have to wait longer for a repeat of that result. Both the teams have a fully fit squad to choose from, with the only absentee being Ben Chilwell for Chelsea. The game promises to be an engaging watch, where the hosts definitely will enjoy an upper hand.
Bet on Chelsea to win.
Chelsea has conceded just 19 goals in 28 games that it has played so far this season. Also, it has kept 6 clean sheets in the 7 London derbies this season. Even though Chelsea's goal-scoring can sometimes take a dip, its defense has remained consistently as one of the best in the entire league (and possibly Europe). We are happy to take a punt on it.
Lukaku is under pressure and has looked a bit out of sorts. However, the Belgian has started showing some important signs of improvement and adapting to the system that Tuchel plays. With only 5 goals to his name in the Premier League this season, it is safe to say that Lukaku has been a disappointment. However, he does remain Chelsea's best striker and could take advantage of a weak Brentford defense.
