Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Tips by Betting.com

At Wembley Stadium, on Saturday 1st of August at 17:30, the English football season ends with the FA Cup final between Arsenal and Chelsea.

The motives for a win for the Gunners will be certainly more significant in this game as they will strive to lift the trophy, which will give them a place in Europe next season.

Chelsea has a game against Bayern for the Champions League, but with the unfavourable result in the first leg (3-0), the FA Cup stays the only trophy that they can bring off this season.

While Arsenal finished 8th in the Premier League and still are not sure for the European tournaments, the Blues, on the other hand, achieved the minimum aim of 4th place in the championship. Too bad for them that they will have to play this match having in their heads thoughts about the Champions League match following week. It is hard to believe that Chelsea has any chances to change the outcome in the game with Bayern but still after such a long stop, everything is possible. In evidence, we can find a lot of historical scenarios in which the team which has won the first game by 3-0 didn't pass the round. Our betting tip for Arsenal vs Chelsea is the 1X sign because:

  • Arsenal managed to make a draw 2-2 at Stamford Bridge in their last seasonal clash against Chelsea in January;

  • without the factor of their own field, even without cheering, the Blues have lost the previous two external matches of Premier and 3 out of the last 4;

  • in London instead, the Gunners are veterans from 5 useful games in a row of which 4 won and a draw;

  • The motivations of Arsenal will be higher than ever because European qualification is linked with success in the Fa Cup Final.
