Chelsea vs Palmeiras – Free Predictions

As expected, both Chelsea and Palmeiras have made it through to the final of the FIFA Club World Cup. The Premier League side are the favourites to claim the title but they shouldn't underestimate their opponents as winning this trophy would mean a great deal to the Brazilian club and we're expecting a very close and competitive 90-minutes between the pair.

Under 2.5 Goals

We can't see more than 2-goals being scored in the final as under 2.5 goals have been produced in five of Chelsea's and five of Palmeiras's last six outings in all competitions. Chelsea only scored one goal in their semi-final against Al Hilal but managed to keep a clean sheet, while Palmeiras secured a 2-0 victory over Egyptian side Al Ahly. Chelsea have kept three clean sheets in their last six matches and Palmeiras have only conceded 1-goal in their last six matches.

If this game is going to be won in the opening 90-minutes then we believe that only one side will score in the process. Both teams have scored in just two of Chelsea's last six matches in all competitions, while only one of Palmeiras's last six outings have produced goals at both ends of the pitch. Both teams pride themselves on having a strong defence and we believe that this will show in what is expected to be a tight and tense final.

All you need to know ahead of Chelsea vs Palmeiras

Will Chelsea be crowned Club World Cup champions this weekend?

A solitary goal in the 32nd-minute from Lukaku proved enough for Chelsea to progress from their Semi-Final against Al Hilal in midweek. The Premier League side entered this competition as the favourites and put in a strong and solid performance in the Semi-Final against an Al Hilal side that had some very well known faces in their starting eleven.

Chelsea Predicted Lineup – Kepa, Silva, Azpilicueta, Alonso, Rüdiger, Christensen, Kovačić, Jorginho, Ziyech, Havertz & Lukaku

Veiga broke the deadlock between Palmeiras and Al Ahly in the 39th-minute and the Brazilian side never looked back from that point on. Early in the second forty-five, Dudu made it 2-0 to end any faint hopes of a comeback for Al Ahly, who were outplayed for the entire 90-minutes and had a man sent-off with 9-minutes left on the clock.

Palmeiras Predicted Lineup – Weverton. Rocha. Gómez. Luan. Piquerez. Zé Rafael. Scarpa. Veiga. Danilo. Dudu & Rony


Chelsea: Arrizabalaga, Ruediger, Alonso, Christensen, Jorginho, Silva, Kante, Kovacic, Lukaku, Pulisic, Werner, Bettinelli, Chalobah, Mendy, Saul, Barkley, Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Ziyach, Kenedy, Azpilicueta, Havertz and Sarr.

Palmeiras: Rocha, Benjamin, Jorge, Dudu, Rafael, Rony, Wesley, Mayke, Garcia, Scarpa, Gomez, Deyverson, Lopes, Atuesta, Weverton, Piquerez, Veiga, Cerqueira, Danilo, Navarro, Jailson, Mateus and Marcelo.
