Sevilla vs Chelsea: Predictions
Sevilla and Chelsea have already confirmed their passages to the round-of-16 but it’s still all to play for in Group E as these clubs lock horns in a straight shootout for top spot, with both currently sitting on 10 points apiece. The Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium is braced for a thrilling encounter.
Frank Lampard has overseen progression to the knockout rounds in back-to-back seasons, and it was a relatively straightforward task this time around, with the Chelsea boss masterminding three wins and a draw, while only conceding the single goal in that time.
Europa League champions Sevilla have followed a similar trajectory with three wins and a draw (which came against the Blues at Stamford Bridge), and they will feel confident heading into this contest as Los Nervionenses are unbeaten in their last seven games against English opposition.
The Londoners have looked a more stable and cohesive unit under Lampard in recent times and are currently on an 11-game unbeaten run which stretches back to the end of September. Can the Blues extend that run and edge top spot in Group E, or will Sevilla inflict further woe on English opposition?

Sevilla vs Chelsea: Match Stats
Much like the match at Stamford Bridge this will likely be a cagey and gritty affair as both clubs vie for Group E bragging rights. Chelsea will need to show heart and resolve on the pitch, and dig in deep against a well-oiled Sevilla side, which is where Mateo Kovacic can play an influential role for Lampard.
The Croatian midfield has made more tackles than any other Chelsea player in the Champions League this season (eight) and has been the keystone of Lampard’s system. His industry and tenacity should go a long way to helping the Blues get a result here, and if he is really on song, a potential ninth clean sheet in the last 12 matches.

Sevilla vs Chelsea: Head to Head
20 October 2020 – Chelsea 0-0 Sevilla – Champions League
This is only the second competitive fixture between these two clubs following the 0-0 last month, which Chelsea may not mind one bit as they have only won one of their last 10 games against Spanish opposition in the Champions League (three losses, six draws).
