Chelsea vs Southampton – FA Cup: The FA Cup’s semi-finals will be played this

Sunday at Wembley, with Chelsea facing Southampton.

Of course that we’re speaking about the English champions and an usual mid-table team. And both teams’ objectives are generally different on the Premier League.

But even taking that into consideration, we can’t deny that both are making a terrible campaign on the season.

Chelsea wasn’t even close to defending their league title. They are very close to being out of the Champions League next season. All that’s left now is the FA Cup to salvage their weak season.

Southampton is doing even worse. If the semi-finals here can be considered a good result overall, on the Premier League they still need a miracle to avoid a relegation that seems almost certain.

Latest results – Southampton:

08.04.2018 PR Arsenal 3-2 Southampton

31.03.2018 PR West Ham 3-0 Southampton

10.03.2018 PR Newcastle Utd 3-0 Southampton

03.03.2018 PR Southampton 0-0 Stoke City

The first aspect to consider here is the fact that this match will take place at Wembley, which slightly decreases Chelsea’s strength.

But will it be enough to question the team’s favouritism against a Southampton in free fall, and that doesn’t give the impression they will react? In my opinion, no. We can state that this is a knockout match and that this kind of matches always generates surprises.

But the fact is that motivation can’t be an aspect to consider diminishing the Blues’ favouritism here. Southampton has been forced to win and that hasn’t been having the needed effect for the team to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

Chelsea vs Southampton – Betting Tip and Prediction:

The team has only 1 victory on their last 15 matches on the competition and they seemed destined to be relegated.

I don’t know if the cup motivation will be enough to generate a considerable technical gain for them to beat a Chelsea trying to salvage their season.

I expect Chelsea to win here.
