Fans of the EPL are offered the 2nd round of this great championship, namely the match between two major London teams. Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea versus Antonio Conte’s Tottenham.
The start of the APL season for Chelsea can be considered satisfactory, as the club won the opening game against Everton. Why only satisfactory? The score was 1-0, the only goal scored by Jorginho from a penalty (!) in the 9th minute of the first half (!!!) – so-so circumstances. And the game left a lot to be desired: Raheem Sterling so far, following his old habit of not so much jerking as dropping down picturesquely in the penalty area (in the 20th minute he once begged for a penalty). But there’s also not much to praise Everton for – in defense they were without Ben Godfrey and Yerry Mina due to injuries, so they had to make substitutions and change the game. It was only in the second half that the Toffees tried to save the game, but without much success.
It should be noted that not only Risharlison, but also Ivan Perisic joined Tottenham on the eve of the start of the AFL season. These two strong acquisitions should be important cards in Antonio Conte’s squad for the whole season. His club already got off to a good start, beating Southampton 4-1 – with James Ward-Prowse, Eric Dyer and Dejan Kulusevski scoring. A fine start, which gave Spurs the chance to top the APL table with the best goal difference (Arsenal are second in that respect). Wonderful, but do not relax, because in the second round they will have to play against a formidable opponent… whose coach not so long ago was Antonio Conte himself.
Recommended bet: draw in the first half and Chelsea’s victory in the second half.
In their first matches, the teams played differently: Chelsea barely cracked the Everton defense, and Tottenham inflicted a devastating defeat on Southampton. But it is unlikely that Tottenham will be able to break through Chelsea’s defence in the same way: the Blues have been very successful under Tuchel in defensive play. If in the first half they will roll the ball and not really succeed, then in the second half they should definitely push Conte’s team to a limit of two goals at most.
