Now, as you’d expect, The Tipster has been evaluating the markets to see where the value lies in this one.
Eden Hazard has already scored once for Chelsea since moving to Lille, and the Tipster is backing the Belgium international to net for the Blues in their pre-season friendly against AC Milan on Saturday in Miami.
Our resident betting expert is also tipping Robinho to score but reckons the match will be tight and is tipping the friendly to be all square at half-time and full-time.
Eden Hazard ensured there was still plenty of Premier League drama despite the season’s conclusion as speculation mounted over his future. With Manchester City and Manchester United both tipped to win the race for his signature, Hazard opted for Champions League winners Chelsea. The 21-year-old scored 22 goals in 48 appearances last season, and the Tipster is backing Hazard to score his second Chelsea goal of their pre-season tour against Milan at 6/4.
Chelsea have endured a mixed pre-season campaign in the United States – Roberto Di Matteo’s side recorded a comfortable 4-2 victory over Seattle Sounders, followed by a 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain, before losing 3-2 to the Major League Soccer All-Stars. Milan will be a couple of weeks ahead of Chelsea in terms of fitness, but the Blues should still manage to contain the Serie A runners-up. So Chelsea and Milan to draw looks an excellent bet at 12/5.
Chelsea have faced Milan on five previous occasions, with three of these meetings ending in a draw. Most recently, the Blues faced the Serie A outfit in the Champions League in 1999, with the pair playing out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge before Dennis Wise cancelled out Oliver Bierhoff’s opener at the San Siro. In both matches, Chelsea and Milan were drawing at half-time and full-time – the same to happen in Saturday’s friendly is astounding value at 9/2.
Robinho’s striker partner at Milan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, departed to cash-rich PSG last week, and the Brazil international will now have to shoulder further responsibility after the Swede’s move to Ligue 1. The former Real Madrid forward has scored 25 goals in 85 appearances since moving to the San Siro outfit. The Tipster is backing Robinho to net against Chelsea on Saturday at 13/8.
