Two leaders of the Champions League Group E will meet on December 2. Chelsea and Sevilla have both secured qualification to the Round of 16, meaning that all focus will now be on taking the top spot in the group.
The 2019 Europa League champions have a right to be proud of themselves. Their impressive results prove that the team have made a step up and are ready for the top flight competition. Sevilla have 10 points after 4 games. Julen Lopetegui’s tactic works, and he has everything under control. His list of achievements in the current Champions League includes 2 victories over Krasnodar – one at home (3-2) and one on a visit (1-2), triumph over Rennes (1-0) and a scoreless draw with Chelsea.
Los Sevillanos have 2 games ahead. As they have already qualified for the next stage of the Champions League, these two games can only influence their position in the Group E.
One of the candidates to be fired in the English Premier League, Frank Lampard has postponed his dismissal by showing quite a speedy improvement. Chelsea solidified their position among the top 3 in the domestic league, having won several recent matches.
As for the Champions League, the Blues have secured an early pass to the playoff stage of the tournament. Frank Lampard’s side drew a game with Sevilla (0-0), confidently beat Krasnodar on a visit (0-4), and twice defeated Rennes – at home (3-0) and on a visit (1-2).
Considering the stats, Chelsea seem stronger and more favourable than Sevilla. But we know that the Spaniards can win. For example, in the 2019-20 season they outplayed Manchester United in the Europa League semi-final. Nevertheless, the Blues will not be passive observers, but fight till the final whistle.
The odds on both teams are rather equal, which means that there is no obvious favourite.
The odds on Sevilla’s victory are 2.71, while on Chelsea’s triumph – 2.688.
A draw is considered to be unlikely, given the odds of 3.36.
For those who like to play safe, there is a double chance bet on victory of one of the teams for the odds of 1.36.
