Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Chelsea will be looking to cement top position in Group E when they host Krasnodar at their Stamford Bridge on Tuesday. Thanks to a 4-0 win over Sevilla the Blues clinched first place in their group, meaning that boss Frank Lampard will use this match to rest several first-team regulars. Anyhow, regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, the in-form hosts should pick up all three points from the match.
Krasnodar, on the other hand, booked their place in the Europa League last 32 thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over Rennes. Since the Russian side have nothing to play for in their last group game, we predict that Frank Lampard’s troops will extend their winning run in the elite competition to five games. The bad news for the hosts is that summer signing Ziyech suffered an injury in a 3-1 win over Leeds United at the weekend.
