Chelsea vs Krasnodar Prediction

With the English club trying to finish their group stage fixtures in the Champions League in style, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday. The host has conceded only 1 goal in their five CL attempts while averaging 2.6 goals in the scoring department.

The host enjoys the ground advantage and will play on the back of a four-game winning streak. Along with that, they are unbeaten in the tournament term. In addition to that, Krasnodar has only one win in their last five league clashes and was on a three-game losing streak before the last win.

Based on these stats, the home win in full-time will probably be the ideal choice. However, the odds are too low for the punters to yield decent returns. The available option in the encounter is the tip for over 2.5 goals in full-time at 1.57 odds, which is probably the best bet for the punters.
