On April 26, Stamford Bridge (London) will host the match of the 33rd round of the English Premier League, in which Chelsea will compete with Brentford. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.
The club, to be honest, knew different times under the rule of Abramovich, and not everything was OK – the 10th place in the 2015/2016 season proves the higher mentioned fact. Still, there was no such insane spending of money in the summer, which, especially if we speak about the winter segment, combined with terrible results. It is obvious that “the Aristocrats” are just waiting for next summer, and Lampard has returned temporarily. Moreover, “Super Frankie” began his work in such a way that almost everyone regrets the departure of Potter. No one believed in any chances in the battles against Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, and “Los Merengues” did win both matches with the same score – 2-0. At the same time, “the Blues”, led by their legend, lost to Wolverhampton and Brighton quite on the case. After that, there was an opportunity to work on the mistakes: they did not play against Manchester United due to the fact that it was just busy with the semi-final of the FA Cup. So, will this pause somehow help to find the game?
The team was able to seriously declare its ambitions only with the current owner – Matthew Benham. He built a powerful, original project almost from the “scratch” (if not to take into account a long and relatively glorious history of the club), with an unexpected belief in Danish football players, and with a manager from the same country, Thomas Frank. The Premier League debutant was able to finish in a comfortable 13th place in the 2021/2022 season, and only added in the game in the new draw. “The Bees” were even considered a real contender for the European competitions, but they had lost either their mood or their performance by the spring. First, there were a couple of draws, and then, April defeats. However, the team almost won the battle against Aston Villa – it conceded a return ball in the 87th minute of the game.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
The clubs exchanged the away victories in the previous Premier League season. And Chelsea overcame Brentford in the cup tournament. The October match resulted in a goalless draw.
The bookmakers are loyal to Chelsea, but Lampard has not improved its performance yet. Thus, we bet on Brentford with “a +1 goal handicap” (odd: 1.7).
