25/02 Daily Tips: Chelsea vs Liverpool Carabao (EFL) Cup Betting Tips

Football Predictions

The Carabao (EFL) Cup, established in 1960 as English football’s secondary cup competition, has seen its significance grow over the years, despite not having the historical prestige of the FA Cup. The competition concludes at Wembley, where the victors not only lift the trophy but also secure a spot in the Europa Conference League, unless they’re already qualified for another European contest.

This season’s Carabao Cup final presents an eagerly anticipated rematch between Chelsea and Liverpool, echoing the 2022 final where Chelsea emerged victorious in a dramatic penalty shootout after a 0-0 draw. The final is not just a battle for the trophy but also carries an emotional weight, especially for Liverpool, as it marks Jurgen Klopp’s last season with the club. The Reds are determined to bid farewell to their manager with silverware, starting with the Carabao Cup, as part of their ambitious quest for a quadruple, including the league title, FA Cup, and the Europa League crown.

Liverpool has been in formidable form, with only one defeat in their last 14 matches across all competitions, showcasing their readiness for the challenge. Chelsea, on the other hand, has struggled to find consistent form, making this final an uphill battle for them. Given the context, the stakes, and the form of both teams, Liverpool stands out as the favored side to claim the 2023/24 Carabao Cup, aiming to avenge their previous final loss to Chelsea and kickstart their trophy hunt on a high note.
