The strongest championship of the Old World, based on the results of last season, is a real treat from the get-go: England’s team with most titles against the current winner of the Europa League.
Manchester United is a nominal favorite. The team had a comprehensive transfer campaign in summer, while Chelsea remained idle due to UEFA transfer ban. The Londoners also lost one of their leaders – Eden Hazard.
In addition, Chelsea has another match in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday, so they will be saving their strength. The aristocrats have a new coach – a club legend Frank Lampard, who many times defeated Manchester United with Chelsea, but so far only as a player.
The first goal scored will play a crucial role in this match. In the last 10 matches between Man Utd and Chelsea, the team that opened the scoring won 6 times. Overall, matches between those two clubs always become a relentless fight where of the utmost importance is the ability to squeeze the most out of the smallest opportunity, waiting for the opponent to make a mistake and punishing for it.
In those last 10 games between the teams they reached statistical top (over 2.5 goals scored in the game) only three times. A bet that appears interesting due to the odds – Both to Score – No (appealing 2.06 in 22Bet line) paid out 6 times out of 10. In their matches against each other the teams haven’t had goalless outcomes for quite a while – since December 2015.
