Today's tips Lens vs Monaco Senegal vs Equatorial Guinea Egypt vs Morocco Venezuela vs Bolivia

Two very evenly matched sides go head-to-head in this season's FA Cup final and we're expecting a very close and competitive 90-minutes between the two clubs. Chelsea are the favourites due to their strong defensive record under Tuchel but Leicester sit a place above the Londoner's in the Premier League table. Chelsea have won this competition many times before and that could give them the edge over a Leicester side that have been to four previous finals and lost them all.

Chelsea vs Leicester: FA Cup Final Predictions

Unbiased tips

All odds are subject to change but the prices shown are correct on the date of publication. Please check with your bookmakers before placing any bets. 

BTTS – No

Both teams have scored in just two of the last six meetings between Chelsea and Leicester in all competition and we believe at least one of these two sides will keep a clean sheet on Saturday. Both teams have also scored in just two of Chelsea's last six outings in league and cup, with Tuchel's men keeping three clean sheets during that period, while Leicester haven't kept a clean sheet in any of their last four fixtures.

Jorginho to Score

Jorginho isn't the most likely choice to score in the FA Cup final but we believe that this game will be very closely fought and could be decided by a penalty. The Chelsea midfielder has converted 6 spot-kicks in the Premier League this season, his best-ever goals return since his days at Hellas Verona. If Chelsea do get awarded a penalty on Saturday then this is the man who will step up to take it and given his record from 12-yards, you can start to see why we're backing Jorginho to score.

HT/FT – Draw/Chelsea

As mentioned above, we're are expecting this year's FA Cup final to be tight and tense throughout as these two sides are very evenly matched and have played to such a similar standard in the Premier League this season. With that in mind, we're predicting there to be no goals in the opening 45-minutes and for Chelsea to carve out a solitary winning goal in the second half.

Chelsea have a great history in the FA Cup while Leicester are aiming to win the competition for the very first time

Chelsea didn't have the best of preparation ahead of this weekend's final, losing 1-0 at home in midweek to Arsenal. However, Tuchel's men still arrive in good form having won four of their last six matches in all competitions. The key to Chelsea's success since the departure of Frank Lampard has been their defence. Tuchel has come in and made the Blues such a difficult team to break down as if evident with their three clean sheets in the last six matches. Both Kovacic and Christensen could return to the squad this weekend following thigh injuries but neither is likely to be fit enough to start the game.

Leicester look set to be without Morgan, Barnes and Justin for the FA Cup final and doubts still remain over the fitness of Evans, who if they can get him back into the side would be a massive boost for the underdogs. We call Leicester the ‘underdogs' but Rodgers has done a fantastic job with the Foxes this season and they currently sit above Chelsea in the Premier League table. Whatever happens in this final, Leicester have had an amazing season but given their history with the FA Cup, their fans would choose a win on Saturday to Champions League football next season. Leicester have been to four FA Cup finals and lost on each occasion, will they make it five defeats out of five on Saturday?
