Bwin’s FA Cup final odds are still in favour of Chelsea despite the Blues coming unstuck last night against Newcastle.
The Londoners’ hopes of finishing in the Premier League’s top four were delivered a potentially fatal blow as Papiss Cisse’s stunning brace gave the Magpies an impressive 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.
However, interim head coach Roberto di Matteo must lift his players quickly for the challenges lying ahead, the first of which arrives on Saturday as they lock horns with Liverpool at Wembley.
Chelsea have been given FA Cup final odds of 7/5 to triumph inside 90 minutes, with the draw available at 11/5 and victory for the Reds priced up at 39/20.
Extra-time and penalties may, of course, be required at the national stadium and the Blues are at 7/10 to win the trophy by any means necessary – a market-leading price which their fans can snap up here.
Kenny Dalglish’s men, on the other hand, are chasing a remarkable domestic cup double after February’s Carling Cup triumph and are rated as 11/10 shots to get the job done.
Extra-time and penalties may, of course, be required at the national stadium and the Blues are at 7/10 to win the trophy by any means necessary – a market-leading price.
New customers registering with bwin can claim a free £25 bet and placing this on Liverpool to win the FA Cup would return £52.50 if the Reds do manage another glorious visit to Wembley.
With so much attacking talent in both squads, there should also be plenty of interest in bwin’s FA Cup final odds for the first goalscorer of the game.
Chelsea have the edge here too, with in-form duo Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba both priced as 11/2 favourites to break the deadlock and Daniel Sturridge rated at 6/1.
The Reds will no doubt be looking to Luis Suarez – who scored a sublime hat-trick against Norwich in this last outing – and the Uruguayan is available at 6/1 to score the first goal of the game.
But regardless of who triumphs on the day, the enduring rivalry between these two clubs should ensure they provide an FA Cup final which will live long in the memory.
