Chelsea fans were jubilant on Tuesday night when their side managed to come back from 2-0 down to get a 2-2 draw with Barcelona, all with ten men, to make the Champions League final. With the FA Cup final to play against Liverpool also, the Blues are still in the mix to have a massively successful campaign but may well have one eye on bigger games than the one this weekend. John Terry will be the centre of attention after being dismissed against the Catalan side, and is also due to stand trial in July for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand in the reverse fixture earlier in the season. Betfred have Chelsea as 2/5 favourites to get three points.
QPR have given themselves a real fighting chance of avoiding the drop, with Mark Hughes’ men starting to pick up unlikely victories, especially at home. The Loftus Road club have been in hat-trick heaven by beating Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham over the last month, and are now in 16th place, a point above the dropzone. Adel Taarabt scored the only goal of the game to beat former club Spurs last time out before being sent off, and will be suspended for the fixture. Betfred give the R’s odds of 15/2 to overcome their local rivals.
Chelsea will look to build on recent successes and should win this one at home. My Premier League football betting tip is a 1-0 Chelsea win, which Betfred have at odds of 6/1.
