Chelsea hosts Krasnodar
Chelsea hosts Krasnodar at the Stamford Bridge in a match from Group E of the Champions League. The English side already won this group, but this is a nice opportunity to finish the group stage on a high level. Let’s preview it in today’s free sure soccer tips.
Chelsea are untouchable at the top of the group now. The Blues are leading the standings with 13 points and they are the only team still unbeaten in this group – they have four wins and one draw. Frank Lampard’s team is three points ahead of the second Sevilla, but they can’t be moved by the Spanish team anymore.
Last week Chelsea officially won this group with a groundbreaking 4-0 win against Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. We expected a competitive game between these two teams, but it didn’t really happen like this. The French international Olivier Giroud scored all of Chelsea’s four goals while his team made Los Rojiblancos look pathetic at their own ground. With this win Lampard’s team showed us that they are ready for something significant in the Champions League this season.
Krasnodar are also playing entirely for their own prestige on Tuesday. The Russian club already achieved its goal and secured the third place in this group. They will continue their European participation in Europa League. Krasnodar are currently three points ahead of 4th Rennes and they can’t be touched, too.
Last week Krasnodar won the third place in the group with a 1-0 win over Rennes at home. It was the Swedish international Marcus Berg who scored the only goal in the game in the middle of the second half.
That’s our free sure soccer tips for the Champions League fixture between Chelsea and Rennes at the Stamford Bridge. This game does not mean much for both teams, but this is Champions League – they will be playing for their names, too.
