The opponents for Super Bowl LVIII have been decided and it will be a rematch between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers.

The Chiefs were crowned the 2019 champions when they defeated the 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.

Kansas City fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the following year, missed out on the big dance for the 2021 season, and now return as defending champions after defeating the Philadelphia Eagles last February.

The Chiefs defeated the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship to book their spot in this year’s title game, while the 49ers prevailed over the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship.

The 49ers, who last won the Super Bowl in 1994, open as the slight favourite (-1.5) according to FanDuel.

The Travis Kelce effect

Travis Kelce has become the centre of attention for his relationship with Taylor Swift, however the Chiefs tight end has also found success on the field.

Kelce caught a touchdown pass from Mahomes in the AFC Championship win and also surpassed 49ers great Jerry Rice for most playoff receptions.
