Our prediction for this Champions League match:
After sharing the spoils with Sevilla in their Champions League opener, Chelsea will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Krasnodar on Wednesday evening. The Blues have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in all competitions. Seeing that Frank Lampard can count on key players for the Krasnodar Stadium clash, it is no surprise the Premier League side are seen as hot favourites to beat the Russian outfit.
The hosts did well to hold Rennes in their first group game, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Chelsea. Given the number of absentees in the home team, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Premier League side. You should bear in mind that the two teams have never met before in European competitions.
