Jose Mourinho's men were not at their best at the weekend and our tipster thinks that the Blues may take time to click into gear against the Erevidisie side on WednesdayChelsea came from a goal down to claim victory against Olimpija Ljubljana on Sunday and Jose Mourinho will be hoping to see his side chalk up another pre-season win when they line up against Dutch side Vitesse in Arnhem on Wednesday evening.
The Blues are favourites to emerge victorious from Wednesday's tussle with the west Londoners chalked up at just 4/7 (1.57) with bet365 to see off their Dutch opponents.
Vitesse have drawn all four of their previous pre-season friendlies thus far this summer and, with less than two weeks to go until the start of the Eredivisie campaign, Peter Bosz's men will be determined to take Chelsea's scalp on Wednesday.
The Dutch side are chalked up at 15/4 (4.75) with bet365 to get the better of the Blues in Arnhem while the same firm go 11/4 (3.75) that the match ends in stalemate.
The correct score market, as always, offers plenty of value for punters with a 2-1 win for the west Londoners chalked up at a chunky 17/2 (9.50) with bet365 while the same firm offer a massive 16/1 (17.0) that it is the Eredivisie outfit who run out as 2-1 winners when the two sides go head-to-head in Arnhem on Wednesday.
It is worth noting that both teams have found the net in pre-season consistently and, therefore, the 12/1 (13.0) quote from bet365 for goals at neither end on Wednesday is certainly far from surprising.
However, Chelsea may need to be patient on Wednesday as they seek to unlock Vitesse and, therefore, it is the 6/5 (2.20) quote from bet365 for the Blues to be the highest-scoring team in the second half that is the recommended play for punters ahead of this clash.
