TIP OF THE DAY: Chelsea – Newcastle: High Expectations from Both Teams!

On Monday, we have a slightly quieter betting schedule compared to the past few days, and this time we’ve analyzed the match to be played at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea will host Newcastle. The match is scheduled to start at 9 pm.

Chelsea: Can the Blues Fight for Europe?

Last season was a nightmare for Chelsea as, despite enormous investments, the team from Stamford Bridge failed to secure a place in any European competitions. This season’s primary goal was to return to Europe, but there’s a real possibility that we won’t see the former European champions in European competitions next season, which would undoubtedly be a disaster. Currently, Mauricio Pochettino’s side is in the eleventh place in the table, eleven points behind sixth-placed Manchester United. However, Chelsea has two games in hand, which, if won, could bring them closer to European competition spots, though it’s going to be a daunting task.

In the last five Premier League matches, Chelsea has managed only one win, two losses, and two draws. The last round saw them draw 2-2 at Brentford. Before that, they had their best performance of the season, drawing 1-1 at Manchester City. Unfortunately, Pochettino’s men recently lost the League Cup final against Liverpool. At home, Chelsea has played twelve games, winning five, drawing three, and losing four. The team will be looking for revenge against Newcastle, who defeated them 4:1 earlier in the season.

Newcastle: A Hard Task to Repeat Last Season’s Success!

Newcastle played phenomenally last season, qualifying for the Champions League, a primary goal since the club got wealthy owners over two years ago. From the first to the last round, the Magpies played at a very high level, finishing in fourth place. However, they lost the League Cup final to Manchester United. In the Champions League, Newcastle unfortunately didn’t progress to the knockout stage, finishing fourth in a group with Dortmund, PSG, and AC Milan.

Like Chelsea, Newcastle also aims for European football, but this seems to be a challenging task. Currently, Eddie Howe’s team is tenth in the table, four points ahead of eleventh-placed Chelsea. A win at Stamford Bridge could give Newcastle some hope of fighting for a European spot. In the last five league matches, Newcastle has two wins, two draws, and a loss at Arsenal (4:1). Their last game saw them win 3:0 at home against Wolverhampton. However, Newcastle has been one of the weakest away teams, with only three wins, two draws, and eight losses in thirteen away games.

Our Suggestion

The last time these two teams met was last year in the League Cup, with Chelsea advancing after penalties. This time, we give the home team the advantage, mainly because Chelsea still has a chance to fight for European competition. We advise you to bet on Chelsea to win, for which the betting company 22bet offers odds of 2.00.

We also believe this match will be high-scoring, so we suggest the over 3.5 goals market (4+), with 22bet offering odds of 2.09.

Finally, Chelsea, showing signs of revival, is likely to score two or more goals in this match. We highly recommend focusing on the home team to score over 1.5 goals, with odds of 1.64 at 22bet.
