Chelsea to risk resting stars in Champions League return

conte hai

Tonight’s game is the perfect one to bet on, considering it’s hardly a Champions League blockbuster to get us back into the mood, and given some of the tempting Chelsea vs Qarabag betting odds on offer.

Chelsea to win and there to be over 2.5 goals in the match comes in at a tasty 1.55 in decimal terms. That means betting £1 would see you returned £1.55, stake included, which should be a fairly comfortable bet.

Chelsea looked in fine form at the weekend as they brushed aside Leicester 2-1, and despite the short gap between this game and that one they should be fresh after an international break.

A world of warning however: Antonio Conte spoke in his press conference yesterday and said that he was likely to rest Eden Hazard. Alvaro Morata will probably also start on the bench.

The boss also revealed that Danny Drinkwater has a problem with his calf, and will thus be unlikely to be able to make his debut.

Overall, it’s hard to know what kind of performance Qarabag will produce, but even a rotated Chelsea team should be able to beat them by 2 goals. You can back the Blues and feel very confident.
