We’ll be focusing on Manchester City vs Chelsea, an all-English final for the 2020/21 UCL title for today’s Champions League betting tips. Guardiola’s men are the reigning champions of England while Chelsea finished at 4th and lost to the Foxes in the FA Cup final.

Recent form analysis

Citizens over the moon

Manchester City have been in excellent form in the UCL this season. They are unbeaten in their European campaign with just one draw and 13 wins along with eight clean sheets. Even though they lost two of their last four matches in the league, it was mainly due to Guardiola fielding the fringe players and a visible drop in intensity after the conformation of their PL title.

The Citizens have been the best side in Europe this season. They have conceded only four goals throughout their UCL campaign despite facing free-scoring sides like Mönchengladbach, Dortmund, and PSG. Along with this defensive showing, they failed to score only once and averaged 2.08 goals per match.

Chelsea have stuttered over the last few weeks

Tuchel’s arrival sparked a wholesome shift in Chelsea’s form and wholly altered their season. Since then, they have defeated both Madrid giants and an excellent Porto side in the UCL knockouts. Chelsea kept four clean sheets over these six matches and conceded only two while scoring eight.

However, they have struggled domestically over the last few weeks with losses to Arsenal and Aston Villa in the PL and an FA Cup final defeat to Leicester. Typical of a side filled with youngsters and lacking experience in the big stages, Chelsea will need their experienced stars to step up to have any shot of overcoming City.

Head to Head

The last six meetings between the sides have seen three wins for each side although all three of Chelsea’s victories came in the past 12 months. This season, the two sides met three times, with City winning 1-3 against Lampard’s Chelsea in the first meeting. However, Chelsea returned the favour in their FA Cup semi-final tie, winning by 1-0, ending Man City’s quadruple hopes. Chelsea then defeated them once more at the Etihad and delayed City’s coronation as the PL champions. Man City have lost only seven times throughout this season across all competitions. The fact that two of those losses came against Tuchel’s Chelsea is a testament to the quality of this Chelsea side.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Finals tend to be a cagey affair, and considering the defensive quality on either side, the best bet here has to be a draw at full time.

Extra Time or Penalties to decide the 2020/21 European Champions

The Champions League final is the biggest match in club football, and teams tend to trust their best facet in such games. Both Chelsea and Man City have reached where they are, thanks to their spectacular defences. Hence, given the magnitude of the occasion, we can expect them to be cautious with their attack, especially if the scores are level towards the latter stages of the 2nd half. Even the last match between these sides needed a 92nd-minute winner to decide the outcome.

We know that City have an embarrassment of attacking riches with some of them in red hot form. However, Chelsea have scored in all 6 of their last meetings against City. Even though City are the bookies’ favourite to win at full-time, these sides are more evenly matched than the general perception. If you are looking to place a bet with the potential to make considerable winnings, the 3.48 odds offered by Bet365 for a draw at full-time will be an excellent bet.
