Arsenal and Chelsea
Arsenal and Chelsea will face each other at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday in the final of the FA Cup. We expect a thrilling game between these two London giants, so let’s preview the game in our soccer betting winning tips.
Arsenal made the headlines and surprised a lot of people when they eliminated the defending champions Manchester City during the 1/2-finals. Pep Guardiola’s team was the favourite at the Wembley, but his protegee Mikel Arteta, now managing Arsenal, surprised him. Two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were enough for the Gunners to celebrate reaching the final.
Now Mikel Arteta must decide how to proceed with his starting eleven on Saturday. Against Man City he left the youngsters Willock and Saka on the bench alongside Torreira, Sokratis and Kolasinac. At the same time Nicolas Pepe is starting to feel himself with the Arsenal shirt, while Lacazette and Aubameyang remain the most influental figures in the team’s attack.
Chelsea reached the FA Cup final after a brilliant display against Manchester United at the Wembley. Until the 85th minute the Blues had a massive advantage of three goals. Olivier Giroud opened the score for Chelsea, while Mason Mount doubled their lead. United’s captain Harry Maguire had the bad luck to score himself an own goal.
Now Chelsea’s manager Frank Lampard has some decisions to make. He must pick between Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham in attack, while Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi will challenge for a starting place, too. They were left on the bench against United during the 1/2-finals.
In our soccer betting winning tips we have the feeling that despite the lack of fans, Arsenal and Chesea will offer us a great spectacle on Saturday. The FA Cup final is always a huge event in English football, so we don’t think it’s going to be any different now.
