Our Prediction:

Liverpool will win

Chelsea – Liverpool Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:30

The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash.

They also won the UEFA Super Cup in 2001 and 1977, with another win this time around seeing them draw level with Spanish giants Real Madrid. Heading into the game, reigning European champions Liverpool have the chance to become the joint third most successful club in Super Cup history. The Reds have appeared in five editions of the match, last running out victors in 2005 as they overcame Russian outfit CSKA Moscow 3-1 in Monaco. Of course, they will be extremely confident going into the match having memorably lifted the UEFA Champions League against fellow Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur back in June.

Chelsea fans will be wanting a reaction from their team following their humbling against Manchester United at the weekend. Whilst they will create a few problems for the Reds, that will not be forthcoming on Wednesday night. Jurgen Klopps team have far too much quality for their opponents and whilst it should be an entertaining match, Liverpool will run out relatively comfortable winners.

Liverpool Team News

The Blues, on the other hand, continue life without Belgian superstar Eden Hazard and considering that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Manchester United at the weekend, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Liverpools party in Istanbul. In their last meeting in a competitive game Jurgen Klopps men emerged triumphant, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Mohamed Salah and Co.

Tammy Abraham netted a sensational hat trick at Molineux, and in him and Mason Mount Chelsea have a very exciting duo of English youngsters. Their thrilling 5-2 win at Wolves last weekend was a high point of Lampards time at Chelsea, and it was a welcome return from the international break after a disappointing draw against Sheffield United before.

The Reds, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Newcastle United 3-1 in their last league fixture, with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah helping Jurgen Klopps team keep their 100% record in the 2019/2020 Premier League campaign intact. Liverpool are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Chelsea and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.

They lost 4-0 to a rampant Manchester United, and while the scoreline was fairly harsh on Chelsea, there is no doubt that they have to improve in the future. Improvement in the very immediate future would be preferable, because an openness to counter attacking football doesnt bode well when faced with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino.

Liverpool and Chelsea face each other at Vodafone Park in an all-England UEFA Super Cup clash. The Reds aim to build on a 4-1 win over Norwich City in the opening match of the new Premier League campaign and seeing that Jurgen Klopp welcomes Sadio Mane back to the starting line-up, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Champions League winners.

However, they are in good form in European competitions and are on a 15-match unbeaten run which culminated with a 4-1 thumping of Arsenal in the UEFA Europa League final last season. They appeared in both 2012 and 2013 but were beaten by Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively. Having appeared in three editions of the UEFA Super Cup, the Londoners have only managed to lift the trophy on one occasion and that was back in 1998. The omens are also slightly worrying heading into the clash against Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah, though, failed to impress in the Premier league and one year later he was sent on loan to Fiorentina. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a striker as well was producing outstanding displays for the RotBlau from 2012 to 2014 and, as a result, Chelsea chiefs decided to sign him on 26 January, 2015 for a fee of 11 million.

Considering the contrasting weekend performances from these teams, a comfortable win for Jurgen Klopps men looks to be on the cards. We like the look of a Liverpool -1 Handicap Win, and were opting for an emphatic 3-0 scoreline in Istanbul too. In addition, 10 of Liverpools 12 competitive matches have seen them win by at least a 2 goal margin, including a 2-0 win over Chelsea back in April.

Reigning Europa League champions Chelsea made their return to the Champions League in midweek, but it didnt exactly go smoothly for Frank Lampards side. Now, the 2 beaten European champions go head to head in the Premier League, and both will be looking to bounce back from their midweek defeats. They lost 1-0 at home to Valencia, although that indignity was softened by the fact that Champions League holders Liverpool also succumbed to defeat.
