After thrashing Wycombe in their opening pre-season match, Jose Mourinho takes his side to Kingsmeadow with another walk in the park expected for the Premier League sideAFC Wimbledon return home for a box office fixture against Chelsea after suffering a defeat in their first pre-season match against Margate, where they lost 3-0. Neil Ardley's men will be disappointed with their start but have a chance to redeem themselves against the might of the Blues.
Chelsea cruised past Wycombe Wanderers, winning 5-0 in their first friendly of the summer. A squad including John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic, Oriol Romeu and Mark Schwarzer ran out comfortable winners, with Terry and Ivanovic both getting on the scoresheet after coming on at half-time.
Mourinho's men travel to Europe after this fixture, where they will face the likes of Vitesse and Werder Bremen, and bet365 price them at 1/5 (1.20) to beat the Wombles.
Unsurprisingly, Wimbledon are priced at 7/1 (8.00) to win with William Hill. Ardley has brought in a number of new players to Kingsmeadow this summer which has seen them be fancied by many to gain promotion into League One.
The hosts face the likes of Sutton United, Woking and Aldershot before their first match against Shrewsbury in August. Wimbledon drew almost a third of their matches in League Two last season, with bet365 pricing this outcome at 11/2 (6.50).
With Wimbledon and Chelsea having differing starts to their pre-season, it could be a long afternoon for the Wombles as they face a rampant Blues side. Despite being a tad skinny, it's worth siding with a safe option of Chelsea half-time and full-time at 8/13 (1.62). Expect the Blues to come out firing from the start, with this bet landing easily against Wycombe last time out.
