Chelsea – Valencia, Champions League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR CHELSEA - VALENCIA
Chelsea fans enjoy the Lampard period. They know that the legend need time to put his ideas together and get used to living in the Premier League as a coach. It is noteworthy that the blue looks much different from previous years. Some think of the times before Abramovic, but the key here is that the talented players of the Blues finally began to be used instead of being given on loan, which happened without choice, but it still brings some romance back to the club.
Valencia is still entering the season. The shape of the bats is not brilliant. They have strengthened well in the summer, but they have a new coach who needs time because he has no experience and this is his first major career challenge at all, because Marcelino was sacked few days ago. The atmosphere is not so good in this team right now. Valencia had a very tough game with Barcelona a few days ago, losing by 2-5, and overall their defensive play has not been at the level since the start of the campaign.
Expert view : There may be a surprise in this match, but we will bet on a goal from Chelsea in 2nd half, because the Blues are expected to dominate more. We expect the pace of the game not to be so fast at the start and the teams to be cautious. We think now is the time to bet on goals for Chelsea. Tammy Abraham is in top form, having already scored 7 goals and scored a hat trick vs Wolves in the last match. Match Prediction – Chelsea score in the 2nd half at 1.60.
