Chelsea have made a flying start to the season, convincingly winning all four of their Premiership matches and they can carry that form over into the Champions League as they head to Slovakia to take on MSK Zilina.
Carlo Ancelotti’s charges are just 1/4 with Jaxx.com to return with maximum points and as they have conceded just once so far this season, they should be able to repel the hosts to ultimately triumph without conceding; an outcome 888Sport price at even money.
At the other end, Florent Malouda is currently in a rich vein of form having struck four league goals already and the French winger, who notched for his country in Bosnia a week ago, is 15/8 at William Hill to get on the scoresheet in this one.
The bulk of the other Wednesday fixtures look set to result in home wins, including Arsenal’s clash with Braga at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners are 3/10 with Betdaq to overcome the Portuguese outfit and 4/5 (Stan James) to do so by at least two clear goals.
Last season’s runners-up Bayern Munich look cracking value at 8/11 with 888Sport to defeat a Roma side hammered 5-1 by Cagliari at the weekend and Shakhtar Donetsk (4/9, Ladbrokes) can also collect three points on their own patch as they entertain Partizan Belgrade.
Stan James meanwhile, chalk 2/5 against an AC Milan victory against Auxerre, 888Sport quote Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid at 1/3 to see off Ajax and Betdaq make Marseille 4/5 at home to Spartak Moscow. In Romania however, the visitors Basel may fair a touch better than Paddy Power’s 9/4 suggests; the Swiss side 8/13 (Totesport) when kicking off with a goal start.
