Manchester United beat Newcastle 3-2… Fierce battle for mid-ranking ahead of the final round

Chelsea, an English professional soccer team, has won four consecutive games in the Premier League (EPL),

leaving hopes of rising to fifth place in the last game.

Chelsea defeated Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 in the 2023-2024 EPL 34th round match held at the Amex Stadium in Brighton, England on the 16th (Korean time). 바카라사이트

The Chelsea, who recently went 5 games undefeated, including 4 consecutive league wins,

accumulated 60 points and climbed to 6th place, 3 points behind 5th place Tottenham (63 points).

With only the final 38 rounds remaining, which will be held on the 20th,

Chelsea has a mathematical possibility of finishing in 5th place.

Chelsea is ahead of Tottenham (+10) in goal difference (+13).

Both teams have missed out on advancing to next season’s UEFA Champions League (UCL),

where they can advance to fourth place, but fifth place is also important to secure the Europa League, the next level competition.

The teams ranked 1st to 4th in the EPL will advance to the UCL finals next season.

The 5th-place team receives a ticket to the Europa League finals,

and the 6th-place team secures a ticket to the Europa Conference League playoffs,

which corresponds to the third division club competition.

In the race to advance to the European competition,

there are other variables in addition to the league rankings such as the English Football Association (FA) Cup.

Originally, the FA Cup winning team is also given the right to advance to the Europa League,

but if the team has already confirmed advancement to the UCL or Europa League based on the league rankings,

the 6th place in the EPL will be given a ticket to the Europa League, and the 7th place will advance to the conference league.

In the FA Cup final scheduled for the 25th of this month, the EPL leader Manchester City (Man City),

which has already confirmed its advancement to the UCL, will clash with Manchester United (Man Utd),

currently ranked 8th in the league.

For Tottenham and Chelsea, there is a possibility of advancing to the Europa League even if they finish the league in 6th place,

but for now, a battle for 5th place is expected to take place in the last game.

On this day, Chelsea took the lead in the 34th minute of the first half when Cole Palmer headed in Marc Cucurella’s cross

and Christopher Nkunku scored the winning goal in the 19th minute of the second half.
