Competition: Champions League
Market: Chelsea to win against Sporting
Odds: 13/19 @ 888 Sport
Chelsea will want to make amends for their poor start in the Champions League, dropping points in their opening group game to Schalke 04. The Blues have started in dream fashion in the Premier League, and now they need a result in Europe on their travels.
Portuguese Liga side Sporting Lisbon are their opponents tomorrow night, and shouldn’t pose too much of a threat for Jose Mourinho’s side. It will, however, be something of a homecoming for the Chelsea manager as he has links to Sporting from the early days of his coaching career, but there will be no time for sentiment tomorrow as Chelsea need the three points to ensure they give themselves the best chance of topping the group.
888 Sport are giving odds of 13/19 for Chelsea to get all three points on their travels, as their top goalscorer Diego Costa may be allowed to start in attack, meaning his physical presence and expert finishing will see him as the chief threat to Sporting.
The likes of Eden Hazard and Andre Schurrle could be the two other forwards for the Blues too, which means raw pace and intricate play for the Portuguese Liga side to deal with on Tuesday.
