Chelsea travel to Italy to take on AS Roma and hopefully secure qualification to the next stage of the Champions League.

Preview

Chelsea currently sit top of Group C in the Champions League with seven points from a possible nine. The Blues can make it an even ten this evening and even secure qualification if they win and results go their way.

Away matches are always a challenge and after the 3-3 draw between the two teams earlier in the month, Antonio Conte’s men will have to be on top form.

Team News

N’Golo Kante could return from his lengthy injury spell this evening and former Leicester teammate Danny Drinkwater is also back in the squad. Victor Moses is the only definite absentee for Chelsea.

For the home side, things are looking good. Defender Kostas Manolas is the only player expected to miss the match.

Betting

This one is almost a coin toss according to the bookies. A home win is 12/7 with a Chelsea triumph just slightly longer at 13/7. Punters can get a draw for 49/19
