Dimitar Berbatov makes prediction for Arsenal vs Chelsea game

Dimitar Berbatov sees the FA Cup final going to extra time.

Chelsea are to face Arsenal in the most electrified FA Cup final game at the Wembley Stadium.

To earn their place in the finals, Chelsea defeated Manchester United 3-1 whereas Arsenal shockingly beat former FA Cup winners Manchester City with a 2-0 victory.

Former Manchester United player, Dimitar Berbatov believes that its hard to pick a winner between the two London rivals and the match may go into extra-time.

“It’s really difficult to predict how the FA Cup final will go,” the Bulgarian told Betfair. “Whichever team wins, it will be the coach’s first major trophy. It never matters what trophy you win, it still feels amazing.

“I think the teams are evenly matched. Arsenal needs to be careful here, as they are prone to mistakes at the back. If they have any defensive lapses, Chelsea will take advantage.

“You need to be greedy for trophies no matter what you have won in the past. It’s a big mark on your CV as a manager to win the FA Cup.”

He added: “I’m excited to see how Arteta and Lampard approach the game.

“I want it to be a draw in 90 minutes so we can see as much football as possible! I just don’t want penalties, as it’s a horrible way to end a game.

“Scoring a penalty in a shootout feels great but missing is the exact opposite. I’ve done both.

“It’s very nerve-wracking. The players are suffering, and I hate to watch it. I just hope we see a great game, I think it might finish 1-1.”
