Competition: Champions League
Market: Tammy Abraham to score anytime
Odds: 11/8 @ Bet 365
Appearing to finally find their feet in England’s top-tier, Chelsea will welcome a struggling Valencia to West London when they open their Champions League campaign on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, bouncing back after the international break in some style and putting five past Wolves on the road over the weekend, Frank Lampard’s side appear to have finally settled to life under the former Blues skipper. While fans in West London might have some concerns over their sides defensive issues, Chelsea’s youthful attacking revival has really caught the eye. With all of their Premier League goals being scored by academy products aged 21 or under, one man to watch on Tuesday will be the free-scoring Tammy Abraham. Bagging a hat-trick against Wolves on Saturday, the red-hot striker now has seven goals in just his last three top-flight appearances.
As for the visitors, after sacking Head Coach Marcelino Garcia Toral after just three La Liga matches and also shipping five away at Barcelona over the weekend, Valencia have drastically struggled at the start of the new campaign. Coming under heavy scrutiny for their display at the Nou Camp on Saturday, the Bats have turned to former Real Madrid midfielder Albert Celades. With just a single victory to their name since opening the 2019/2020 campaign last month, Tuesday’s traveling fans will also have huge concerns over the previous meetings against Chelsea. Suffering a 3-0 hammering the last time the made the trip to SW4, Valencia have never recorded a victory over the former Premier League champions.
Bet: Tammy Abraham 11/8 to score anytime against Valencia in Tuesday’s Champions League showdown @ Bet 365
