Chelsea – Cardiff 19.10.2013
Chelsea are on the third position in the Premier League,
only two points behind the leader Arsenal. They are unbeaten at home ground so far and have three wins on the three matches. All three games have finished with medium stake of goals.
In the last round they were better than Norwich and won as guests. Jose Mourinho’s side have lost just one of their seven league matches. The defender Ashley Cole is expected to miss the match due to recovering from a rib injury, while the striker Fernando Torres will be absent with a knee injury. Demba Ba will probably replace Torres, while Ryan Bertrand is expected to be in the defence line. Chelsea will also be without Marko Van Ginkel who is long term injured.
Match: Chelsea – Cardiff 16.00h
League: England Premier League
Our prediction: over 2.5 goals Odds: 1.60
Cardiff City are newcomers in the Premier League and they didn’t meet with Chelsea in league match since March 1984. Cardiff have poor start in the new season and with only two victories currently sit on the 14th position. In the last two matches they have two one win and one defeat, but both games have finished with medium stake of goals.
The striker Andreas Cornelius, who came this summer in Cardif, have played only one match so far. He is still recovering from injury, so probably will miss this match too. He is the only injured player for the guests.
According to all previous mention, I expect at least three goals at Stamford Bridge.
