Chelsea will play against Wolverhampton in Premier League and we got a Football forecast for the match. The game is on Sunday, July 26 from 16:00 UK at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea is in 4th place in the league with 63 points after 37 games. If the Blues want to finish in the top 4 and play in Champions League next season, they need to win at least a point from this game. The team of Frank Lampard lost twice in their last 3 matches in Premier League. Sheffield United beat them with 3:0 but a few days later Chelsea beat at home very hard the last team in the standings – Norwich City. Their last clash was against Liverpool and the Reds beat them at Anfield with 5:3. However, between these matches the Blues beat Manchester United 1:3 in FA Cup and the club will play at the final against Arsenal.
Wolverhampton is in 6th place with 59 points after 37 matches. A place in the top 6 will mean that they will play in Europa League next season but to be sure that they will play in Europe Wolves need to win because Tottenham is only one point behind them. In their last 3 games in Premier League, the team won 7 points after beating Everton and Crystal Palace at home and a draw away from home against Burnley. Overall, Wolverhampton performed a lot better than expected before the season and now they have a star in the team – Adama Traore. His price according to rumors is more than 100 million euros.
It will be a very important clash for both teams because Chelsea is looking to secure their place in Champions League and Wolverhampton in Europa League. The Blues are favorite and I think that Frank Lampard will motivate his players and they will not lose at Stamford Bridge. Wolves showed us that they struggle against the top teams after losing after the pandemic break against Arsenal and Sheffield Utd. However, it will be a very nervous match in which I don’t expect many goals. Football forecast: Under 2.5 goals
