St Patricks Athletic vs Chelsea
International – Club Friendlies
Date: Saturday, 13 July 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Richmond Park.
Chelsea finished their season on a high with a resounding win over Arsenal in the Europa League finals despite missing out on a top-two finish in the league.
Frank Lampard, the former Chelsea midfielder who has taken over the managerial reins, was deprived of a win in his first game in charge as the squad were held to a 1-1 draw in their friendly against the Bohemians.
However, we can certainly expect the side to be keen on bouncing back to winning ways this weekend, with a much stronger starting eleven.
Their foes, St Patricks Athletic, will be coming into the clash on the back of a disappointing 2-0 win against Norrkoping in the Europa League qualifiers.

St Patricks Athletic vs Chelsea Prediction
The Blues will be hoping to hand Frank Lampard his first win as a manager for his side when they clash with St Patricks Athletic at Richmond Park.
Chelsea’s last defeat came way back in April, and are currently on an eight-game unbeaten run. Although the result in their previous game was far from what they would have hoped, the squad are unlikely to be a lot less wasteful of the opportunities that they create on Saturday.
St Patricks made just two feeble attempts on target in their previous game and were far from convincing in both attack and defense. The squad failed to find the back of the net in that fixture and are unlikely to slot one home against this opponent either.
We can certainly count on Lampard’s men to come out on top by the end of the ninety minutes with a clean sheet in the bag to go with it as well.
