Chelsea vs Roma predictions and betting tips for the Champions League clash on Wednesday 18th October at 7:45pm. Read today’s betting preview for the match below.
It’s fair to say that Chelsea’s weekend performance at Selhurst Park was hugely underwhelming with Antonio Conte’s side losing 2-1 to the side who started the day without a point and without a goal to their name. That was far from the ideal preparation for this key Champions League clash with Serie A side Roma. The Blues have picked up successive victories in their group so far including the dramatic late winner against Atletico Madrid. Roma started with a goalless draw at Stadio Olimpico before narrowly squeezing past Qarabag. We’re starting with our Chelsea vs Roma best prediction for today.
Chelsea are not defending well at the moment and come here off the back of subsequent Premier League defeats. Despite this, they always seem to bounce back in this competition. Whilst they aren’t convincing at the back, they have plenty of players who can hurt the opposition and Alvaro Morata could come back into contention for this tie.
Both Teams to Score is 17/20 with Sporting Bet and that is the best play to begin our Chelsea vs Roma predictions for Wednesday night’s UCL fixture.
With Alvaro Morata coming back from injury, he may need a couple of games to ease himself back into the fold. Chelsea may have to look for goals from elsewhere and Marcos Alonso’s ability from a set-piece situation could prove the difference is a nice price.
Marcos Alonso to score anytime is the second of our Chelsea vs Roma predictions for tonight’s Champions League game and is priced at 16/5 with Bet Bright.
Our final Chelsea vs Roma betting tip is backing the two sides to pick up a point each. Chelsea have a number of injuries to contend with and that could see them struggle here. Likewise, Roma weren’t convincing on the road against Qarabag and arrive off the back of defeat to Napoli. The side from the capital would surely settle for a point away at the group leaders.
31/10 with Bet Victor looks a good price for the match to end all square and that is our final Chelsea vs Roma betting tip today.
Victor Moses limped off at the weekend and will be assessed ahead of this tie. Alvaro Morata is apparently fit enough to feature but it remains to be seen whether he is risked from the start. Danny Drinkwater and N’Golo Kante are still sidelined for the Blues.
Kostas Manolas went off injured against Napoli at the weekend and his absence will be a huge blow here. Patrik Schick, Gregoire Defrel and Kevin Strootman are all carrying knocks.
