In our opinion, Barnsley ‘s current condition and statistics are relevant only in relation to the guests’ opponents in the Championship. In terms of the strength of the squad and the level of players, the ” retirees ” are three heads higher than the outsider of the second-strongest league.
Most likely, the capital city will not leave any chance for the guests, which is what we propose to play the bet.
Our prediction is that Chelsea will win + total over 2.5 goals and we bet on this from BC Winline with odds of 1.71
