The Blues picked up their first win under new coach Graham Potter on Saturday and hope to get another in the Champions League

Chelsea are looking for their first Champions League win of the season when they host AC Milan in the third match of the group stage. The Blues have just one point from their opening two matches, having drawn 1-1 with Red Bull Salzburg before the international period.

A difficult test awaits them at Stamford Bridge, however, as Milan sit top of the group and have been beaten just once in all competitions this term.

As the hosts, Chelsea are the favourites to win this game and pick up their first victory of the Champions League campaign, with bet365 offering them at 7/10 (1.7).

Chelsea vs AC Milan first goal scorer odds

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got his first Chelsea goal as they ran out 2-1 winners against Crystal Palace at the weekend and is the favourite to break the deadlock against his former team at odds of 9/2 (5.5) ahead of co-star Armando Broja, who is set at 5/1 (6.0).

At 7/1 (8.0), Olivier Giroud is the lowest-priced Milan player to open the scoring as he comes up against his former team, while Ante Rebic is 9/1 (10.0).

Chelsea vs AC Milan preview

AC Milan have several injury problems to deal with heading into the meeting with Chelsea.

They were already without the likes of striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Mike Miagnan, Theo Hernandez, Divock Origi and Alessandro Florenzi, but the fitness issues grew even worse over the weekend when Davide Calabria, Alexis Saelemaekers and Simon Kjaer all came off injured against Empoli.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have had their own fitness problems to contend with, but coach Graham Potter has been given a bit of a boost of late as N’Golo Kante, Marc Cucurella and Edouard Mendy are all nearing a return.

It is unclear if the trio will be fit to start against the Rossoneri, though the Blues managed to get the job done without them against Crystal Palace.

They will be eager to get a second straight victory under their new coach to ensure they climb off of bottom spot in the group.

Chelsea vs AC Milan tips and predictions

Both these teams are in fine goal scoring form of late and will be looking to maintain their run this week. You can get odds of 4/5 (1.8) for that bet to come through again this week.
