Chelsea vs Palmeiras – News, Line-Ups and Predictions



English (Chelsea) and Brazilians (Palmeiras) will meet in the final of the FIFA Club World Cup this Saturday. The champions of Europe and America will face each other in what will be a match that may have surprises due to their history and in PlayOn99 News we leave you everything you need to know.

By Facundo Di Bona (@facudibona).

The logic was given: the champion of the Champions League will face the winner of the Copa Libertadores for the final that will define the world club champion.

Last year it was Tigres de México who denied Palmeiras the possibility of reaching the final and playing against Bayern Munich, but the Brazilians returned to the tournament for being two-time champions of America and managed to be in the definition for the title.

In front will be Chelsea, European champion and one of the best in the world -according to Pep Guardiola the best- who has just won by the minimum against Al Hilal.

The Blues had a very tough game where their rival stood up with a lot of courage and, despite the 1-0 on the scoreboard, went to look for Kepa’s goal and bothered him more than necessary.

It is still in doubt whether Édouard Mendy will replace him in goal because he is the starter and returned from being with his national team, but the performance of the Spanish goalkeeper was outstanding to risk such a move.

Thomas Tuchel, who had coronavirus and it is not yet known if he will be able to be on the bench, will have the final decision on what style to adopt: whether to go for the classic formation that Chelsea uses with three defenders and a line of midfielders that determine where the match will be played. encounter or take cover with the return of four defenders.

Palmeiras is a team that has become known in America for closing back and going for counterattacks, so they could feel comfortable against an opponent who bombards them.

The Brazilians arrive after a good game against Al Ahly where they won quietly 2-0 and had no surprises.

There are some interesting tidbits between these two teams. None has been world champion and, in this edition, we will have a new name among the privileged.

In duels between English and Brazilian clubs, the Americans lead 2-1: San Pablo beat Liverpool in 2005, Corinthians did their thing against Chelsea and Liverpool itself managed to win against Flamengo in 2019.


Chelsea: Kepa; Christensen, Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Ziyech, Havertz; Lukaku.

Palmeiras: Weverton; Rocha, Gustavo Gomez, Luan, Piquerez; Danilo, Ze Rafael; Dudu, Veiga, Scarpa; Rony.


Chelsea’s odds are 1.6 and Palmeiras’s 5.8, but the most important thing is who will win the title: The Blues 1.35 and Brazil’s 3.25.

In this type of match, the South American teams tend to go much stronger at crosses and impose physicality, so it would not be bad to play with cards, although statistically neither of them passes 4.5 cards.

A good play would be the odds of over 3.5 cards at odds of 1.65.
