Swansea and Chelsea play the second leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final tonight looking to secure a spot in the Wembley final against League Two Bradford City.
Swansea take a commanding 2-0 lead into this second leg but an early Chelsea goal could scupper the Welsh charge to Wembley, although it is hard to see Chelsea stopping the Swans getting a goal.
Chelsea to win in 90 minutes (17/20 Ladbrokes) looks a fine bet given they have won their last six domestic away matches scoring 20 goals in the process, this run included two five goal showings, four against Stoke and three at Sunderland so with the shackles off tonight Chelsea could really trouble Swansea. They won 5-1 at Leeds in the last round and 5-1 at Southampton in the F.A Cup Third Round a few weeks ago.
Looking at Swansea they have been solid at home of late and the betting makes them 7/2 (Bet365) to win in the 90 minutes. The Swans have only lost twice at home all season, holding Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea to draws already this season and the draw (29/10 with Boylesports) could be the way to go in the betting again tonight.
Chelsea need to win by three clear goals to win this match in 90 minutes so if you think they can do it you will get some big prices for a correct score: a 3-0 Chelsea win is 18/1 with Bet Victor, 4-1 is 33/1 with Coral and 4-0 is 40/1 with the same firm. 5-1 (the score Chelsea have won their last two away cup matches by, is 100/1 with Paddy Power).
For our betting tips tonight there is one man that screams out on the anytime goalscorer betting market, and it is of course Michu. Chelsea will need to attack from the off and Swansea have quality and pace on the break so Michu to score anytime (12/5 with Sky Bet) will be getting our money.
