FA Cup Games with the Predictions
Chelsea vs Liverpool
Liverpool will be looking to bounce back from a shocking 3-0 defeat to Watford in the English Premier League Matchday 29 clash. they battle Chelsea for a spot in the FA Cup quarter-finals at the iconic Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening. The Blues drew to Bournemouth in the their own clash in the EPL Matchday 29 games. Both teams are good teams but at the moment Liverpool looks more in-form than the home team. our bet will be on the visitors to win.
Frank Lampard side has a couple of injury crises at the moment of which most of the players are his team’s starters. The likes of Tammy Abraham, N’Golo Kante, Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho and Christian Pulisic are all in the recovery room. Liverpool, on the other hand, is enjoying a very successful season, with no major injury crisis in their dressing room. The last time they met at Standford Bridge it ended 2-1 in favor of the Reds we believe history will repeat itself as they meet tonight.
Reading vs Sheffield United
After beating the likes of Blackpool and Cardiff City, Reading booked their FA Cup 5th round tie with Sheffield United. The Royals are on the right track to secure yet another Championship survival, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remaining games of the season. They have been struggling at home ground in the second half of the season, and they have only managed to win one win in their previous six home games in the English second tier.
Sheffield United, on the other hand, has been performing above all expectations this term, with the team sitting in the 8th position in the EPL standings. The Blades aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and we predict that they will take advantage of the fact that the Royals have been struggling on home soil of late. Away win is our prediction.
West Brome vs Newcastle United
Even though both West Brome Albiom and Newcastle United competes in different leagues, WBA compates in the Championship and Newcastle United in the Premier League, the Baggies are most likely to win the FA Cup 5th round tie. West Brom is on the right track to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League, but they aim to record a good result in the FA Cup 5th Round Games with Predictions
WBA did well to beat West Ham United in London in the previous round. They suffered a shocking 1-0 loss to Wigan Athletic in their last league match, but not withstanding we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Championship side. The Magpies, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the second half of the season. Considering that Newcastle United needed a replay to beat League One side Oxford United in the last 32, home win should definitely be considered.
