Valencia v Chelsea Tips & Betting Preview
There’s a case to be made that Group H is easily the group from the Champions League that season. Ajax, Chelsea and Valencia are deadlocked on seven points apiece (with Lille cut adrift on one), and it is still nigh-impossible to forecast exactly who will progress.
Because their defeat to Valencia in gameweek one, Chelsea have impressed in Europe–although their 4-4 home draw with Ajax was fortuitous considering the people’ two cardsand they’re my pick to edge outside Valencia in this crucial Mestalla battle.
The Spanish outfit dropped to Ajax in October to a 3-0 home defeat, and if they’re unbeaten at home an injury list will hamper them. It is bad enough losing a couple of first-teamers, however in this case, perhaps half of Valencia’s (arguable) greatest XI are sidelined.
Chelsea won there is not a reason why they can not return to winning ways in Spain — and seven straight off matches before their defeat The Etihad past Saturday — including a success over Ajax.
With Valencia’s accident tragedy, the visitors will fancy their chances — although I’m still not totally convinced by Chelsea at the rear.
I like 7/1 for Jorginho to score in any time.
The penalty specialist of chelsea has found the net so far and when he steps up, as all of us know by now, he disturbs’n” scores.
Valencia conceded a penalty at Stamford Bridge, which Ross Barkley missed, but I anticipate Jorginho to adhere it off when they do .
