The new champions of the EPL, London Chelsea will host Watford at their home ground on the upcoming Monday within the 38th round of the English championship. There is no doubt, that Stamford Bridge will be crowded with fans, who will come to congratulate their favorites with the long-waited title.
Chelsea made a victorious spurt in the end of the championship. Conte’s team won five times in a row, and the victims of the Blues were Tottenham, Southampton, Everton, Middlesbrough and West Bromwich. After 36 played rounds, Chelsea managed to gain 87 points and have become unreachable for the Spurs, which have 77 points in the asset, ten points less, than Tottenham, and the London team has only three matches in the asset. Chelsea have had 17 encounters at their home ground within the EPL this season: 15 victories and two defeats.
Watford haven’t formally guaranteed themselves a spot in the elite for the future season, but the Hornets are six points ahead of Hull, whereas having better difference of scored and conceded goals, therefore there is not that many real options of relegation for the future guests. All in all Watford have had 18 away matches in the EPL, in which they got three victories with three draws and 12 defeats. It is hard to count on points in a match against the champions with such statistics.
Chelsea will try to finish the championship season victoriously to make their supporters happy. Watford are a decent team, but the team is not equal to the Blues, so we cannot expect any real struggle from the Hornets and a bet on a confident victory of the favorite looks like a good option.
Prediction for the match: Chelsea to win with -1.5 Asian handicap.
