Chelsea vs Wolves Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Sunday, 26 July 2020. Scheduled kick-off 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET at the Stamford Bridge.
The final match-day of the PL is always going to be nail-biting, and especially so with huge stakes on the line. The Blues need a draw at the least in order to qualify for the Champions League, while the Wanderers will be looking for a win, in order to make it to the Europa.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are locked in a race with the Spurs for the final European spot. Jose Mourinho’s men, who are just one point behind, are taking on the struggling Crystal Palace, and are expected to win. As such, the Wanderers have no option but to go in for the three points.
Likely, this is a virtual playoff final for both teams.
Despite the Blues needing just a point from this game, they will certainly not risk it and go for a draw. Santo’s men will be hell-bent on securing the win, and for Frank Lampard’s men to target a draw would be, playing with fire.
Considering these special circumstances, it’s evident that the teams will be attacking relentlessly looking for goals, and taking into account of the added pressure as well – expect goals in plenty this Sunday.
Chelsea vs Wolves: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Lampard’s men won the reverse fixture, with a 2-5 scoreline.
- They had also recorded ten of the former twelve wins.
- Every PL fixture since 2012 has had goals from both teams.
- The hosts have a 100% unbeaten record at this stadium.

Chelsea vs Wolves: Prediction
The Blues lost 5-3 on the road the last match-day, against Liverpool. Meanwhile, the Wanderers registered a 2-0 victory at home over Crystal Palace.
As things stand, Lampard’s men have a slight upper hand. First of those reasons would be, they need just a single point from this fixture to qualify for the CL. And even if things go south in their pursuit for the win, they could make do with a draw.
On top of that, they have a far more talented and experienced roster, and also are previous champions of this competition. They have also recorded ten of the preceding twelve overall h2h wins, and have a 100% unbeaten record at this venue.
To be blunt, they have a 100% winning record at this stadium barring one draw in 2019, whereas the Wanderers were winless in ten of their last fifteen road trips. As such, expect Chelsea to deliver a win this Sunday at the Stamford Bridge.
However, this is the final game of the season, and Santo’s men are desperate. They will give their 100% on the pitch, and go look for the win. At one point or another, they are going to find the back of the net.
