Chelsea VS Zenit - Betting Preview

HOLDERS CHELSEA TO KICK OFF THE CL CAMPAIGN WITH THE BANG

Chelsea maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday evening, though the final score did flatter the Blues somewhat. The Champions League holders kick off their defence with the welcome of a Zenit side that is unbeaten in the league, winning five of seven games. Zenit have failed to win their last two away league matches, being held to draws at Lokomotiv and FC Ufa, while their Champions League record of late has been poor as they picked up one point in their six group stage outings last term. This should be a relatively routine start to the group stages for the Blues.

CHELSEA GO FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH

Chelsea actually weren’t convincing at home during last season’s group stage, beating Rennes 3-0 but only drawing with Sevilla and Krasnodar under Frank Lampard. However, three road wins saw them progress as table toppers and Thomas Tuchel then stepped in to lead them to a famous outright triumph. Both Madrid clubs and Porto were brushed aside in the knockout rounds before the Blues upset Man City 1-0 in the final.

Owner Roman Abramovich isn’t a man to rest on his laurels and the Blues have now added one of the best strikers in the world in Romelu Lukaku to their squad. Manager Thomas Tuchel is spoilt for options, and his side will be among the favourites to win the trophy once again. Securing Saul Niguez on loan from Atletico Madrid will also add strength in depth to an already talented midfield, leaving Chelsea with no obvious chinks in their armour.

ZENIT UNLIKELY TO STUN THE CHAMPIONS

Zenit finished bottom of a pretty average group last term, losing twice to Borussia Dortmund and Club Brugge and only taking one point off Lazio. Not much has changed regarding the quality of Sergei Semak’s squad and the Sky Blues have started out brightly enough on the domestic front. A strong Brazilian contingent includes Douglas Santos, Wendel, Malcom, and new signing Claudinho.

In Malcom and Claudinho they have two highly skillful attackers, while forwards Artem Dzyuba and Serdar Azmoun have been prolific goalscorers for their club. Dzyuba has been something of a talisman for Zenit though, as they haven’t won a Champions League match without him finding the net since September 2015. Overall, apart from some individual quality, Zenit seem just a level below Chelsea’s class.

Chelsea VS Zenit BETTING TIPS

Chelsea begin the defence of their Champions League title with what looks like a straightforward test when entertaining Zenit. The Russian side have every incentive to do well, as they will host the final in St Petersburg, but look up against it on all known form. A relatively serene start to the new season and home advantage should see Chelsea make a successful return to the competition they won in May. Undoubtedly, as the dominant force in Russia, the visitors should pose a threat to the Blues at the back - but they cannot repel Lukaku and company for a full 90 minutes.

Tucker grew up in London, more precisely in West London. But, unlike many locals, he doesn’t like big and famous teams from that part of the city. Instead, ever since he was a kid, Tucker was passionate for lower divisions. This passion was born when his uncle from Reading took him to the local derby with Aldershot Town when he was 6 and since that moment football was running through his veins. He became a huge fan of the Royals for life, and whenever he could, he goes to Madejski Stadium to enjoy the game. Apart from being a job, his sports knowledge also becomes more than useful when he is betting live on high stakes which is also his passion.
