Another of the glamour friendlies for Sydney FC as they host Premier League champions Chelsea on Tuesday at the ANZ Arena. Sydney aquitted themselves well in their recent friendly with Tottenham. Ibini Isei and Brosque are two of the inform Sydney players netting four in their last four each. Marc Janko the former Porto and Salzburg striker is the star in the squad and is top scorer for the club with sixteen goals this season he has his work cut out for himself against the meanest defence in the Premier league but will get chances as no doubt Chelsea will rotate twenty two during the friendly.
Chelsea played twenty two in the first game of this club friendly tour against a Thailand All Stars collection. Young english attacker Solanke netted the winner in a dour 1-0 victory but the fans were happy as Hazard, Remy, Diego Costa, Ivanovich, Cech and Terry all made appearances for the blues. I expect a similar performance here from Chelsea with two full teams taking the field one for the first half and one for the second half. Jose Mourhino will use the off season to have a look at youngsters Brown, Colkett and Solanke as well as a number of other squad members. Chelsea have a superstar squad and should have enough to be competitive no matter what eleven they put on the field.
With Sydney impressive against a Tottenham team that were pretty strong as a squad I think the home team is worth a bet on the handicap here. +2 Sydney are evens and that looks a super bet for me. I think Chelsea are here to fulfill sponsorship obligations and with a long season just finished a week ago there will be tired legs and I think a lack of focus here. I am taking the home team +2. As with most friendlies this is just a small stake to have an interest.
