On Sunday at 9:00 pm (IST) Chelsea will meet Crystal Palace in the FA Cup second semi-finals at Wembley Stadium. Chelsea won the second leg of their quarter-final match in the UEFA Champions League to Real Madrid but lost on aggregate, and will now be desperate to reach the FA Cup final, while Crystal Palace will be eager to make the most of this opportunity and qualify for the final.

Thomas Tuchel‘s side will enter into this game having been eliminated from the UCL by Real Madrid on a 4-5 aggregate score. They put on an impressive performance to win the second leg 3-2 in midweek, but it wasn’t enough to advance further into the tournament. They’re also out of the Premier League title chase, having given Man City a 12-point lead in England’s top flight league. Chelsea’s only hope of winning silverware this season is the FA Cup.

Chelsea will be hoping to play their best game; they have a very good roster and will be desperate to reach the final after falling out of the UCL.

Crystal Palace is in 13th place in the Premier League. Crystal Palace comes here after defeating Everton to reach the semi-finals, although they are coming off a setback against Leicester in the Premier League, which might make things difficult for Viera’s team.

Prior to their 2-1 loss to Leicester City, Palace had kept four consecutive clean sheets in all competitions. They’ve been sturdy in previous games and will want to upset Thomas Tuchel’s team.

The two teams have met 60 times in different tournaments, with the first match taking place in the FA Cup in 1906. As one might assume, Chelsea has a 33-12 advantage over Palace in this match, with 15 games ending in draws. The Eagles have won 3 of their five FA Cup matches vs Chelsea in history. .
