There is no doubt Arsenal vs Chelsea is a dream start for the season in the English Premier League. According to the experts and the Antepost betting offers given by the biggest bookmakers worldwide these two team would be the main contesters for the title in the world’s most exiting football championship.
The match between these two is for the 2015 FA Community Shield, in which play against each other the winner of the FA Cup and the Premier League champions for the last season. This year the match will be played on August 2 and of course the venue will be Wembley. The referee of this match is Anthony Taylor.
Arsenal is the current holder of Community Shield, as they prevailed over the team of Manchester City with 3:0 in the beginning of the last season. Arsenal is one of the teams in England who participated most often in the battle for this trophy. Since its establishment 93 years ago, Arsenal have participated 21 times in the first match for the season and they have won the trophy in 13 occasions.
For Chelsea it would be the eleventh participation in such match, with four titles so far. One of the victories for the team of Roman Abramovich was precisely against their opponent today. In 2005, the Blues from London won with 2:1.
The match between Chelsea and Arsenal attracts even more attention due to the transfer of Petr Cech, who replaced the blue shirt with the Gunners one just a month ago. According to many experts, this is one of the few mistakes that Jose Mourinho has made in his career. With this transfer many believe he had allowed Arsenal to be a real contender for the title. Cech has at least four seasons at the highest level and he already showed that in the preseason matches where Arsenal is significantly more stable in defense with him in the squad.
Exactly stability that Arsenal showed in the defense as well as the traditionally defensive systems of play that Mourinho uses in the important matches is the base for our betting for this match. Bet365 proposal for Under 2.5 goals scored by both teams in the regular time is 1.85 and looks good enough for a bet.
Surely, Jose Mourinho will approach in the match seriously and will build Chelsea’s game on not to concede a goal. In the same time, with Petr Cech as a goalkeeper Arsenal is solid in defense and could rely on their good attack to take something from this match. Is it possible to see three or more goals in this match? Of course it is, but the chances for an Under 2.5 goals are far better than the odds of 1.85 proposed by the Bet365.
