Team News – Chelsea
It was a hassle-free outing for Antonio Conte’s side in round one of this tournament, easing to a 6-0 win over Qarabag at this venue. A win that was expected, but the English champions must be given credit for the manner in which they got the points, Pedro, Zappacosta, Azilicueta, Bakayoka, Batshuayi and a Medvedev own-goal the main points of note in a show of strength. Chelsea then went to Spain and nicked a 2-1 vs Atletico Madrid, despite falling behind. Griezmann did his thing, Morata and Batshuayi scoring.
At home, they have been less than convincing during the early part of their defence, sitting fifth after eight games played, showing a record of four wins, one draw and three defeats. A loss to Man City was understandable, but the 2-1 reverse at the hands of Crystal Palace at the weekend is unforgivable. Previous to that match, Palace hadn’t won a game or scored a goal – they certainly had no problems on Saturday.
Despite that embarrassment, a home win here is the pick of traders, Chelsea chalked up at 4/6. That price is available with Coral and although it’s tight enough, there’s shorter out there. They’ve scored eight goals and conceded just one in their previous starts at this level. Try Chelsea -1 on the handicap in your betting tips and predictions at 15/8 (Betfair).
Team News – Roma
Roma go in second, unbeaten themselves, but with four points from a possible six earned so far. That tally comes thanks to an opening day draw with Atletico Madrid, before doing as expected and beating Qarabag last time. Manolas had the Italians ahead inside seven minutes, Dzeko making sure on 15, before da Silva made things interesting, hitting back in the first-half. The second-45 failed to keep pace, but the job was done.
The Magic One started October with a 2-0 league win over AC Milan away from home, serving as a real confidence booster, but they fell to defeat last time, beaten 1-0 by Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico. Fancy this one to keep pace with recent results? Back no in the both teams to score market at 11/10 (Bet Victor), or if you fancy goals, there’s 17/20 through Sportingbet.
You should get a lot more luck picking sides there than backing Roma to win three points, if you take odds compilers at their word. The away win has been written off, currently circling the parade ring at a chunky 5/1, best when investing your stake money at bet635. +1 on the handicap is more likely, 13/10 with the same firm.
Chelsea vs Roma – UEFA Champions League Tips and Betting Predictions
Roma are a big price to do anything here, and we really can’t argue against that stance. Chelsea at 4/6 with Coral is the NAP of our betting tips, and although that’s not a price that will make you rich overnight, it will pull its weight in accumulators, and we expect it to be very popular on Wednesday. The odds are good enough to have an impact on your overall returns.
So, if we take for granted that Chelsea are going to win, we must now decide how they’ll achieve that result. Playing the correct score market is a risky business, but the rewards are handsome, and well worth a pop at small stakes. We’ll try 2-0 Chelsea as the next best of our predictions, 15/2 paid out by Bet Victor, if we’re onto a winner.
