Chelsea is hosting FC Krasnodar at Stamford Bridge in round 6 in the UEFA Champions League.
Chelsea is playing absolutely fantastic soccer at the moment, and they haven’t lost any of their last 13 games. This past weekend, Chelsea was hosting Leeds in the EPL, and after losing 0-1, Chelsea scored 3 goals, and they turned the game around. The final score of this game was 3-1. Chelsea is now in 3rd place in the EPL with 22 points. In the Champions League, Chelsea is at the top with 13 points, and they will stay there. In their latest Champions League game last week, Chelsea was playing against Sevilla on the road, and they have had 45% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 4 big chances created, and 83% of the correct passes. Chelsea was fantastic in this game, and they have won this game 0-4. Giroud is now the leading goalscorer for Chelsea with 5 goals, while Werner added 3 goals. Havertz has 2 assists. Musonda is the only injured player for Chelsea at this time. Chelsea is one of the best teams in Europa right now, and if they can stay consistent, I see Chelsea getting far in the Champions League, and be in the race for the title in the EPL.
Krasnodar is not playing well, at least not consistently. With 4 points, Krasnodar is now in 3rd place in their group, which would take them to the Europa League. In their last Champions League game, Krasnodar was facing Rennais, and they have had 43% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 74% of the correct passes. Krasnodar has won this game by a goal in the 71st minute of the game. The final score was 1-0. Marcus Berg is the leading goalscorer for Krasnodar with 2 goals, while Wanderson, Suleymanov, and Ramirez each added 1 goal. Stotskiy and Petrov are both injured, and they will miss this game for Krasnodar. This past weekend, Krasnodar was hosting Rotor Volgograd in the Russian Premier League, and they have won that game 5-0. With this win, Krasnodar is slowly climbing the Premier League standings, and they are now in 9th place with 24 points, 29 scored goals, and 19 conceded goals. Even if Krasnodar losses this game, and Rennais wins their game, Krasnodar will stay in third place because the head-to-head result is the first tiebreaker.
Chelsea has demolished Krasnodar in their first game in the Champions League, and I think they will do it again here. Chelsea is the better team here, and honestly, they don’t need a win here, but it would be a shame to break their winning streak. I’m taking Chelsea at home.
