Chelsea – Krasnodar : Preview & Prediction
Chelsea, although qualified for the Round of 16, will want to end this phase with a new victory and thus preserve their unbeaten streak (4 wins and 1 draw). The opponent is no match since Krasnodar sank 4 goals to 0 in Russia in the first leg. A new success of the Blues is to be expected especially since the band at Lampard has been walking on water since its last failure on September 29 at Tottenham in the FA Cup. The current Tottenham runner-up, with his 8 successes in the last 9 outings, is scary !. The Blues have just won in Seville (4-0) and in front of Leeds (3-1) this Saturday with two very big performances from Olivier Giroud with 5 goals scored. Krasnodar is eliminated and has nothing more to hope for in this group. The Russian club has already suffered 3 setbacks in 5 days and has not won outside on the European scene, signing 1 draw in Rennes (1-1) and 1 defeat in Seville (3-2). The current 8th (out of 16) has suffered 7 setbacks over his last 10 outings but still remains on 2 successes against Rennes (1-0) in C1 and against Volgograd (5-0) this weekend. Krasnodar, on an ongoing 4-game losing streak, has a very low chance of victory at Stamford Bridge !.
Chelsea leader and qualified for the next round.
Krasnodar is guaranteed to be transferred to the Europa League following his double confrontation against Rennes (1-1 and 1-0).
Chelsea have the best attack (13 goals) and defense (1 goal) in the group.
The English club had won quite widely in Russia (4-0) in the first leg.
The Blues have been undefeated for 13 matches.
Chelsea, easy winner in the first leg (4-0), will want to finish the job in this group in order to keep the confidence necessary for the rest of the competition.
