EFL Carabao Cup bet on football

It’s the 2nd leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final, as Chelsea host Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Thursday, kicking off at 7:45pm local time. Spurs are leading 1-0 from the first leg, as Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game form the penalty spot, but unfortunately for the visitors, he will not be available for this game. Who will be going to Wembley to face Manchester City in the final?

Home Team: Chelsea

Chelsea have been in poor form over the last couple of months and that is due to the goals drying up for the Blues. Morata is unfancied, Giroud has been battling injuries, and Eden Hazard hasn’t been able to score as many goals as he would have liked. Therefore, despite the possession and new style of play Maurizio Sarri has imposed onto his team, they are toothless up front, and don’t look like causing the opposing defence too many worries. Gonzalo Higuain looks set to join Chelsea, but is unlikely to be ready in time for this match.

Chelsea look as if their top four spot is under threat from Arsenal, following their 2-0 defeat to the Gunners last week. Getting into the Champions League is the main focus for Chelsea, but they are one game away from the cup final, and winning silverware would be a huge boost to the club for the remainder of the season. Can they turn the deficit around?

Away Team: Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham have had to experience many highs and lows throughout the season, but its undeniable that Mauricio Pochettino has done a stunning job this year, keeping Tottenham fighting on all four fronts with a squad that looks increasingly depleted as the weeks go by. Harry Kane is out until March, Son Hueng Min is on international duty at the Asia Cup, Moussa Sissoko is out for a fortnight, and even in the last game it appeared that Deli Alli has picked up a hamstring injury and looks to be out of this clash. Tottenham’s season until Christmas was going well, but now it take a serious turn for the worse off the pitch.

In their most recent match, they managed to scrape past Fulham to win 2-1 at the weekend, to keep a small cushion over Chelsea in the league table, but it turns to the domestic cups in the next 7 days. At the weekend its Crystal Palace in the FA Cup, but on Thursday, they are 90 minutes away from reaching the Carabao Cup final, and potential for some silverware this season. Can the makeshift team get the job done?

Head to Head

Tottenham’s 1-0 win the first leg was their 3rd win against Chelsea in a row, with Chelsea not winning a game against Spurs since August 2017. Not only have Tottenham won the last three, but they have also won four of the last six. In the last couple of decades, it has been Chelsea who have been dominant, but if Tottenham can avoid defeat here, perhaps it shows a shift of power in this fixture. Tottenham won at Stamford Bridge in their last game here, but that was their first win there for 28 years. In the Carabao Cup’s history between the two teams, Tottenham had beat Chelsea in the 2008 final, and Chelsea got revenge in the 2015 final. Who will make the 2019 Carabao Cup final?

Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur Predictions and Betting Tips

bet now betting on football Chelsea are at 8/13 to win in 90 minutes, with Tottenham at 9/2. A draw, which would see Tottenham progress, is at 14/5. You can also bet on the teams to qualify too, so Tottenham are slight favourites to progress at 4/6 with Chelsea at 11/10. It promises to an intriguing match with Chelsea struggling with confidence, and Tottenham struggling for goals. Therefore, I am going to opt for a 1-1 draw in this match, backed at 6/1.

I think that Olivier Giroud will make a start for Chelsea, so I would back him to get a goal for Chelsea at 8/5, and for the visitors, I would back Cristian Eriksen at 5/1, as he was the player to score the first goal for Spurs last season at Stamford Bridge. Finally, Eden Hazard is always a player that produce excellent performances on his day, so to win big money, you can back him to score in both halves at a generous 12/1.
