On Thursday, May 19, the rescheduled match of the 27th round of the English Premier League will take place, in which Chelsea will take on Leicester at home stadium Stamford Bridge. The starting whistle will sound at 22:00 Kyiv time.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have already secured a top-four finish in the Premier League and a ticket to the Champions League next season. The “pensioners” have very good chances of winning bronze medals of the championship, for this it is enough to score two points in the remaining two matches.
If Chelsea had not lost to Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the current Champions League, or at least beat Liverpool in the FA Cup final, then the season could be considered quite successful. And so it turned out to be rather mediocre for the Blues due to the lack of trophies.
The Brendan Rodgers team has a significant decline compared to previous seasons. The Foxes have lost even the theoretical chances of qualifying for European competition, so they will not be very motivated for the remaining matches.
If the club’s management gives Rogers a credit for his past merits, then Leicester should even be a little easier, because they will not need to be sprayed on the international arena. This season, the Foxes reached the semi-finals of the Conference League, where they lost to the Italian Roma.
