Leicester City vs Chelsea Prediction and Betting Preview 28 June 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-1
Always considered favorites for the latter part of the competition, seeing Chelsea participate in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup is the norm. They have established themselves as one of the best English teams over the past couple of years.
Match status: 2019/20 FA Cup
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester)
The news of the appointment of Frank Lampard as head coach was greeted by jeers by sections of the supporters. However, the English gaffer has proven his doubters wrong with Chelsea perfectly positioned within the top-four mix in the Premier League.

Also, the Blues have managed to steamroll through to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup. This achievement is pretty significant given that this side lost their star player Eden Hazard during the summer, and are currently placed under a transfer embargo.

However, Lampard’s charges have weathered the storm, looking to achieve success this campaign. The fans will be overjoyed at the prospect of cup success this term. For this, the Blues will need to approach each game, one at a time.

This Sunday evening, they will be squaring off against high-flying Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, both sides tussling for a ticket to the semi-finals of the competition.

Leicester City vs Chelsea Team News

Turning heads in the Premier League, Leicester were intent on replicating their scintillating performances in the FA Cup. With the league title already out of the picture, the Foxes will turn their attention to the league cup, looking to secure a piece of silverware this season.

Playing host to Championship outfit Birmingham City in the 5th round, the Foxes had one eye on the game and another on the quarterfinals. They were determined to see off this opposition to advance to the next stage of the competition.

Despite featuring a second-string squad, Leicester City managed to secure a narrow 1-0 win to send Pep Clotet’s side crashing from the tournament. The visitors kept things tight at the back until they were finally breached by Leicester’s Ricardo Pereira, ultimately condemning them to defeat.

Meanwhile, Chelsea were faced with the herculean task of upstaging European champions Liverpool in the 5th round. With nobody expecting them to salvage anything from the game, the Pensioners headed into the game without pressure.

Surprisingly, they toppled the Reds in a fiercely-contested affair at Stamford Bridge. A first-half goal from Willian set them well on-course from victory. The game was then put to bed through Ross Barkley’s strike in the 64th minute, as the Blues headed home with victory in the bag.

FA Cup games do not come any bigger than this. Two English juggernauts going toe-to-toe in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup, surely you can expect a blood bath at the King Power Stadium. Given both sides are pretty comfortable in the league, they will be having a real go at success in this competition.

Also, these two teams have their respective points to prove with cup success this term. Having gone a couple of years without a trophy, the Blues will want to send a message to their rivals that they are still to be feared.

Meanwhile, Leicester City will be looking to prove to the world that their shocking 2016 Premier League triumph was no fluke with another piece of silverware added to the cabinet.
