Football Prediction of the Day Chelsea vs Manchester City
In this game there are two teams that play offensively.
Therefore, I expect a match with many occasions and implicitly with many goals. Thus, the prognosis I bet on is 3+.
Manchester City has the best offensive in the Premier League, with an average of over 2.5 goals scored / match.
The Londoners are not bad either in terms of goals scored; Chelsea have scored 53 goals in the 30 games played so far (an average of over 1.5 goals scored / match).
The team prepared by Pep Guardiola scored 8 goals in the 2 games played since the resumption of the championship.
I think he will score at least 1 goal in Thursday’s game, counting the fact that Chelsea has a pretty permissive defense.
Prediction Today: Total match goals 3+
