The two teams hold the top two spots in the Group C, but their back-to-back encounters might well prove to decide the battle for the top two positions here.

Chelsea

The Blues are clearly in a much better position following their last-gasp win over Atletico Madrid in late-September at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

Antonio Conte will, however, need to boost up his team’s confidence ahead of a shocking 2-1 defeat to the rock-bottomed Crystal Palace in the weekend’s Premier League action.

Chelsea have already dropped out too many points in the domestic league and a potential failure in the continental competition would further ruin the atmosphere in the dressing room.

Roma

Giallorossi won’t come into the game in a much better mood either after suffering the home loss to Napoli in Saturday’s Serie A derby.

Eusebio Di Francesco’s side has thus ended the five-win streak and bouncing back against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge will be quite a tough challenge for them you have to admit.

Chelsea vs Roma: Head to head

The two sides featured the same Champions League group back in the 2008/09 campaign when each of the teams took wins in front of their fans.

The clash at Stamford Bridge saw a convincing 3-1 victory for The Blues.

Chelsea vs Roma: Prediction

Roma have been far from impressive so far in the season and they have lost to both Inter and Napoli in Serie A failing to create anything against Atletico Madrid on the opening day of Champions League campaign as well.

We thus have to see Chelsea as pretty clear favourites here and we’ll back Conte’s side to grab a highly-important victory in front of their fans at the odds of 13/20.
