Leicester vs Chelsea: Leicester hosts Chelsea on the FA Cup’s quarter finals this Sunday
Both teams are upon, probably, the only consolation prize that would allow them to finish the season with a title.
That for Chelsea is even more important. The English champions, that will be dethroned this season, no longer have a shot at winning the title.
Chelsea is in 5th place and is starting to see their Champions League’s spot seriously threatened.
On the Champions League midweek, they ended up being battered by Barcelona and also said goodbye to that competition, on the 8th finals and on the Carabao Cup, they had an early elimination suffered at the hands of Arsenal.
That way, the FA Cup appears as their chance of winning a title on the season. On this FA Cup, they have already eliminated Norwich, Newcastle and Hull City.

Of course that Leicester’s ambitions are smaller than Chelsea’s. And I believe that, by their own standards, they are making a solid campaign.
Solid in the sense that they will avoid relegation easily (they currently sit in 8th place with 40 points) and, who knows, maybe look for a title on the FA Cup.
On this competition, they have already eliminated Fleetwood Town, Peterborough and Sheffield United.
Leicester vs Chelsea – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Of course that Chelsea is an opponent on a different level. The English champions come into this match with some motivation and that should make up for a good encounter here.
Leicester and their good attack is certainly capable of scoring against Chelsea and naturally I also expect one goal from the visitors.
