The Blues have won four of their five Champions League group games so far and our tipster is expecting them to improve that record on Tuesday

Chelsea will be looking to round out their Champions League group stage in style when they welcome Krasnodar to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening.

It has been a rather straightforward European campaign for the Blues so far, winning four of their five games to ensure they will finish top with a fixture left after last week’s 4-0 demolition of Sevilla.

Chelsea vs Krasnodar Latest Odds

Having eased to a 4-0 win in the reverse fixture, it is no surprise to see bet365 make the Blues just 1/4 (1.25) to round out the group stage with another three points.

Krasnodar are guaranteed to finish third after beating Rennes last week but are out at 10/1 (11.0) to finish the group stage with another victory.

Both these sides have only drawn one of their five games so far and another stalemate is available at 5/1 (6.0).

Chelsea vs Krasnodar Team News

Olivier Giroud scored all four goals against Sevilla and should lead the line again here, with Frank Lampard set to make a myriad of changes for this dead rubber.

Hakim Ziyech is injured but there could be rare starts for the likes of Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Krasnodar are without right-backs Dmitri Stotskiy and Sergey Petrov but, like Lampard, Murad Musaev could opt to ring the changes with nothing at stake in west London.

Chelsea vs Krasnodar Preview

Although there is not really anything to play for in this fixture, Lampard will certainly rally his men to continue their highly impressive unbeaten run.

Chelsea have not lost inside 90 minutes in any of their last 16 fixtures in all competitions, winning eight of their last nine and scoring 25 times whilst conceding just three during those nine matches.

The same cannot be said for Krasnodar, who have won their last two fixtures but that still only makes it three wins and seven losses in their last 11 games.

Chelsea vs Krasnodar Tips and Predictions

Even a rotated Chelsea team should prove far too much for Krasnodar and the 13/8 (2.63) quote from bet365 on the Blues to win with a -2 handicap looks a strong selection for this Champions League clash.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
