Barnsley will fill the club's coffers!
For Barnsley, hardly any cup is a priority. Given that they are involved in the struggle for survival in the Championship. Last season, for example, they were the first team to drop out of the final standings.
In the FA Cup, however, the club's cash receipts are undoubtedly important. And reaching the 5th round is already definitely a very good income, which provides a budget for at least a few seasons ahead.
Now the revenues will be even higher due to the level of the opponent. And mainly because the match will be broadcast on TV.
Chelsea will hardly underestimate the match!
For Chelsea, of course, revenue from this tournament is not a priority. But even so far there have been some doubts about their motivation in it.
Now, led by Thomas Tuchel, we can be sure that it is already there.
Forecast for Barnsley - Chelsea
For some comparison in the class of the two teams it is more than inappropriate to think. Even if we assume that Chelsea will go out with their B team.
We must not forget that last year in a meeting between these two teams, but in a match for the League Cup, Chelsea won 6-0. Now such a defeat is not necessary at all. And it most likely won't happen.
But a bet on Chelsea is also meaningless. For some, albeit partial success of the hosts, we must be quite optimistic.
But there is something else.
This match is not expected to be of any great intensity. That is, the severity of attacks with an ambush game is unlikely.
In addition, Barnsley play Old English style with long balls forward. Which violates their entire building in defense.
And often there is no defensive line to trap the enemy's ambush. More than 1 or 2 Chelsea ambushes are unlikely. And the odds are good.
Or at least better than the one for their victory.
Top facts and statistics for the match
- Barnsley has won 5 of his last 7 home games: 5-1-1.
- He has under 2.5 goals in 6 of Barnsley's last 7 games.
- Chelsea have not lost in their last 5 games, winning 4.
The curious thing in this case, dear friends, is that in 2008, in his march to the semifinals, Barnsley eliminated Chelsea 1-0 in the quarterfinals. Can the "Dogs" repeat this feat today, according to the bookmakers, not giving an advantage to the "Blues" with almost 8/1. On the other hand, the tips do not respect the 2nd at all, moreover, they start with the 1st, then a goal goal, not even less than 2.5 goals. For the 2nd it is not a problem, because it has a low and unusable rate for us. In this case, we think it is best to bet on the option obtained in the last 4 of 5 games for Chelsea in the FA Cup - over 2.5 goals. So, forecast over 2.5 goals and wishes everyone for a lot of positive emotions!
