Competition: Club Friendly
Date: 17th July 2022
Kickoff: 02:00 UTC
Venue: Allegiant Stadium

With their new American owners on board, Chelsea is set to start their pre-season campaign with a friendly against Club America on Saturday night. The Mexican side plays hosts to the English giants amidst their ongoing Liga MX season, in which they managed just two wins before this exhibition fixture. On the other hand, the Londoners arrive at the American stage having forgone many of their key players from previous seasons. Still, it is highly likely that before this game is played, we could see at least two big signings being revealed by Todd Boehly and co.

Club America vs Chelsea FC Betting Tips

If we go by Chelsea's record in pre-season for the last three campaigns on the road, their first fixture has always been either a 1-1 draw or a 1-0 win for them. A consistent observation is under 2.5 goals being scored. Thomas Tuchel's side, which focuses on defence being their biggest strength, does not concede a lot of goals and the same pattern has been observed in their pre-season friendlies in the recent past. But, Club America has scored against 6 of their last 8 opponents, taking the goal count to over 2.5 in most of the occasions. But none of these teams have been close to Chelsea's quality. We are anticipating an Under 2.5 goals game with a scoreline prediction of either 1-0 to the Blues or a 1-1 draw.

  • Best Tip: Under 2.5
  • Prediction: 1-0 Chelsea

Main striker Jonathan Rodriguez has been sumptuous form off-late with his goal-scoring boots on. If Club America are to score in this game, it should be none other than their number 11 on the score-sheet. One of the other players to look for are Nestor Araujo in the back-four, with the central defender picking up a knock in the previous game against Monterrey, but getting back to peak fitness in no time to face the Europeans. Attacking midfielder Alejandro Zendejas will also be key as he could break the lines with his creativity just between the middle and final third.

We expect youth academy defending prospect, Levi Colwill, to get a nod at least in the second half. With the club still without more than 2 traditional centre-backs, Colwill is expected to play a big part in the 2022-23 campaign. Christian Pulisic should start the game playing in his continent now for the first time as a Blue. Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner will be in the squad for this game, with either of one starting too, as the duo prepares an exit from Stamford Bridge later this window.
