Chelsea vs Palmeiras final predictions and betting tips

Chelsea got a hard-fought victory over Al Hilal in the semi-finals of the Club World Cup. They are yet to win the FIFA Club World Cup as they suffered a defeat to Corinthians in 2012. The Blues reached their second FIFA Club World Cup final in history.

The Blues have won three of their last five games in all competitions and have scored at least a goal in four of these five matches. Moreover, Chelsea have failed to score just once in their last 12 games. I predict Chelsea to score in the final against Palmeiras.

The Brazilian side was impressive in the semi-finals as they got a deserved 2-0 victory over Al Ahly. The Big Green won the Copa Libertadores last season after they got a 2-1 final win over Flamengo. Palmeiras have scored a goal in each of their last five games in all competitions. I predict Palmeiras to score a goal in the game.

Both teams to score are priced with the odds over 2.00 — a value choice for the final.

Betting prediction: Both teams to score (Yes)

Odds: 2.12 (+112 American; 28/25 Fractional)
