FA Cup: Barnsley vs Chelsea

Barnsley vs Chelsea

The gap is too large in terms of qualifications is the premise for Chelsea to have the highest confidence for the upcoming FA Cup campaign.

Barnsley just had to receive a 0-0 draw in the English first division against a team that is not in good shape, Nottingham Forest, this is considered a bad momentum when they had to regrettably divide points before. ahead of Cardiff City. This shows that the confidence that coach Valerien Ismael's teachers and coaches bring to this match is not high.

Only considered as a mid-range team in England's No. 2 tournament, so going to the eighth round this time was an unexpected success for Barnsley, which is clearly shown by they are only 12th on the Championship rankings. With such rankings, performance and level of loss, the Oakwell home team hopes to go deep into the FA Cup round is still considered too much, the possibility of receiving defeat in this match is very high when They have to face a mighty Chelsea.

On the other side of the field, defeating the great rival Tottenham Hotspur in the 22nd Premier League round not only shows the return of Chelsea, they also want to prove that they are the No. 1 London team at the moment. The Blues continued to show high form with a 2-1 win over Sheffield United in the next round.

The ability to compete for the title this season is returning to Chelsea after the presence of coach Thomas Tuchel on the bench, although there is almost no chance to win the Premier League, but 1 place in the top 4 is still in their ability. Not to mention, the Stamford Bridge team will certainly never cease their defeat in the FA Cup final last season, so they will show 100% determination this season. With a stable performance with a series of 5 consecutive defeats, Chelsea promises not to have too many difficulties to win this match.
