Barcelona vs Chelsea Prediction & Betting tips
Chelsea against Barcelona is almost a long-running champion in the Champions League. For the fourteenth time in this millennium meet the two opponents in this Champions League season to each other. So far, the two met once in the first and second leg in the group stage, as then both came on and five times in the knockout phase. Twice Chelsea went one round, three times Barcelona. The memory of this is certainly the semi-final second leg in 2009 at London’s Stamford Bridge, as Chelsea in fact because of numerous wrong decisions of the referee Tom Henning Övrebö eliminated in the last second.
Without Lionel Messi Barcelona played his weekend in La Liga at the tail end of Malaga at the weekend. Even without the Argentinian Barca had little trouble and drove at the end of a 2-0 away win. After just 28 minutes, the Blaugrana had led 2-0, two-pointers later, Malagas Samuel Garcia red card. In the second half Barcelona switched back a few gears without ever losing control of the game. The odds ratio was 20: 6 in favor of the Catalans. The goals were scored after the final whistle 9: 2 from the perspective of Barca. In La Liga, Barcelona are still eight points ahead of Atletico Madrid and have not lost in 22 wins and six draws. In the Spanish Copa del Rey, Barcelona are in the final against Sevilla, and in the Champions League Barca is well on the way to the quarter-finals.
In the first leg in London Barcelona came to a rather flattering 1: 1. Chelsea hit aluminum twice before the blues took the lead after just over an hour. Barcelona took advantage of England’s only mistake a quarter of an hour before the end to a 1-1 final score. Scorer was Lionel Messi, who had previously been without his own goal in eight direct duels with the Chelsea FC or for the equivalent of 730 minutes. In general, Barca struggled in his history against Chelsea. Of the 13 previous duels in the Champions League in this millennium, Barcelona could only win three. The last victory is dated 22.02.2006 and was at the London Stamford Bridge. The last home win against Chelsea dates back to 23.02.2005. None of the last eight direct clashes has won Barcelona.
Chelsea have been undefeated since eight direct encounters with Barcelona in the premier class, but could win only two of these eight games. As a result, there has been a draw in six of these last eight games. In Barcelona, Chelsea will have to score at least one goal, which the Englishmen failed to do once in six appearances at Camp Nou. None of the last four away games in Barcelona has Chelsea lost – but none won. Speaking of not winning: Chelsea has lost all his last four competitive games away in League Cup and Premier League. The opponents were called Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City, but you can expect from the reigning English champions that he does not lose in each of these games. However, the blues travel to Barcelona with a little sense of achievement, as Chelsea won the Premier League at home against Crystal Palace 2-1 at home this weekend.
In the next season, the premier class threatens to take place without Chelsea. Currently, the blues in the Premier League are only in fifth place and are four points behind Liverpool. So far, Chelsea comes in league play on a record of 17 wins, five draws and eight defeats. Only five of these eight bankruptcies and three draws were on the opponent’s place. In the group stage of the Champions League Chelsea could win away at Atletico Madrid, but lost for example in the AS Roma 3-0. Chelsea are not as consistent this season as they were in the previous championship season and have suffered some unacceptable defeats, including a 3-0 home defeat of Bournemouth and a 4-1 win at Watford. As far as I’m concerned, games involving Chelsea FC are currently not easy to predict – except on Wednesday.
