[UEFA Champions League] FC Barcelona VS Chelsea 15.3 [Copy Link]

Barcelona: Four straight games with under 2.5 goals ( Recent Form: W D W D W )
FC Barcelona gets going at the right time. While the team delivered some less convincing games in February and also left points in the championship race, they showed their high class in recent games again. Against Espanyol Barcelona, ​​Getafe and Las Palmas, the Catalans drew only and lost so much of their points cushion on the first pursuers Atletico Madrid. On Matchday 27, in the top match between Barca and Atletico, the Catalans prevailed with a 1-0 and thus buried the hope of the Madrilenians to get the crown in La Liga. In the final round against FC Malaga, the team of coach Ernesto Valverde did not bother anything and won 2-0 as the winner of the place. Barcelona now holds 72 points in the table and is nine points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of the table. For the upcoming duel against Chelsea Valverde should have no major staff worries. Although missing Lionel Messi in the game against Malaga due to the birth of his third child, but against Chelsea, the superstar will come up again. The only question mark is behind the deployment of Captain Andres Iniesta. Against Atletico Madrid, the 33-year-old had to be replaced in the first half with a thigh blow and in the upcoming match against Malaga, he was also not in the squad. Valverde wants to wait until Tuesday and then announce whether the captain will be used or not. Couthino will certainly not be in the squad - he has already played for Liverpool in the premier class.

Chelsea: Four straight defeats on the road ( Recent Form: W D L L W )
Chelsea were the better and more dangerous team in the first leg against Barcelona, ​​but had to concede a bitter goal against Marcos Alonso due to a bad pass. The English had every chance of winning the game. The goalscorer Willian had hit twice before his hit and only aluminum. On the performance at Stamford Bridge, the team of Antonio Conte can certainly build. In the championship, Chelsea does not feel like it. Although the team won against Crystal Palace 2-1 at the weekend, but before they had to give up against both Manchester clubs beaten. Manchester United won 2-1 at Old Trafford and Manchester City beat Chelsea 1-0 at Etihad Stadium. Now the Londoners hold 56 points and are only in fifth place of the table. Although Tottenham and Liverpool are within reach, there is a realistic chance that Chelsea will not qualify for the upcoming Champions League season. This would be a big setback for the club. Antonio Conte can draw almost on his entire squad for the upcoming duel against Barcelona. Only David Luiz and Ross Barkley count to the hospital of the club. These two players have been missing for some time now and do not leave any serious gaps in the team. So Conte can send his best team to the field at Camp Nou.

After all, as the return match and the results of the last direct duels show, things are always very tight between Barcelona and Chelsea. We think that not many goals will be scored in this match either. Both teams are in good shape and will largely neutralize each other. Our tip therefore goes in the direction of less than three goals. The betting operators set betting odds of up to 1.85 for such a tip. We think these good odds are a good reason to bet on fewer than three goals scored.

FC Barcelona  VS  Chelsea

O/U Pick: Under 3 @ 1.85.

UEFA CL    02:45    FT     FC Barcelona    3 - 0    Chelsea VOID
