Chelsea will feel confident of securing a route through to the Champions League knock-out stages as they go into the final two games of Group H with a six-point gap over third placed Zenit St Petersburg having picked up three wins from their four games so far.
The only defeat the Blues suffered thus far came against their Tuesday night opponents Juventus, when a goal from Federico Chiesa condemned them to a 1-0 defeat in Turin and that result means that Bianconeri sit top of the group with four wins from four thus far.
That Champions League form is at odds with the Old Lady’s Serie A form of late. Although they’ve won their last two league games, Massimiliano Allegri’s men are still struggling down in eighth place with no fewer than 11 points separating them from current league leaders Napoli.
Chelsea on the other hand are enjoying their Premier League campaign and currently sit top of the table after 12 games, having suffered just one defeat thus far to second-placed Manchester City. What’s more, confidence will be high following an emphatic 0-3 win over Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.
