Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
All eyes will be on Wembley Stadium when Chelsea and Manchester City face each other in the Carabao Cup final. The Blues set up a meeting with Pep Guardiola’s troops by beating their local rivals Tottenham in the semis, but Maurizio Sarri’s men will have a much bigger fish to fry in Sunday’s football game. Chelsea aim to get their revenge on Man City for an embarrassing 6-0 loss in the Premier League, but given the Citizens’ current form, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the Blues. Kun Aguero has been scoring goals for fun in 2019 and we predict that the Argentine attacker is going to lead Manchester City to yet another triumph. As always, a man to watch in Maurizio Sarri’s team will be Eden Hazard, but, as previously mentioned, we do not believe that the capital club will claim a major scalp in the League Cup final.
Highlighted Player (Sergio Aguero):
Sergio Aguero was born on 2 June, 1988 in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. Sergio’s nickname is Kun and he used to play for Independiente and Atletico Madrid in the past. The Manchester City attacker has won two Premier League trophies with the Etihad Stadium outfit (2011/2012, 2013/2014) and he played in the Champions League semi-final with the Citizens in the 2015/2016 season. However, Real Madrid proved to be a big catch for Kun Aguero and his teammates in the semis of the elite competition.
The Argentine forward won the Olympic Gold Medal with the national team in 2008, while lifting the FIFA U-20 World Cup trophy on two occasions (2005, 2007). Aguero scored 24 goals in the 2015-16 Premier League campaign, but that did not help Manuel Pellegrini’s troops win the national championship.
Kun was married to Diego Maradona’s daughter Gianinna, but the couple separated in 2012. Giannina gave birth to their son Benjamin in 2009.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game.
Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash.
After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
