Reasons For Chelsea vs Roma predictions & Betting Tips
Whoever wins this clash will go top of the group, with the English side currently leading the way with 7 points out of 9. Eusebio Di Francesco’s men are second on five points.
Two weeks ago the two teams played out an entertaining 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge, where Roma were denied a comeback win by Eden Hazard, who equalised after Chelsea had squandered a 2-0 lead.
The Blues have struggled since midfield lynchpin Ngolo Kante suffered an injury on international duty a few weeks back, although there is a chance he could return in time to face Roma.
The Frenchman is arguably the key player in Antonio Conte’s side, and will provide a huge boost if indeed he does return. He was crucial in midfield alongside Fabregas and Bakayoko in the win away at Atletico in their last Champions League trip.
Considering Kante returns, we’re backing Chelsea to repeat their heroics in Madrid and get the win in the Italian capital, which you can back at 2.70 with Unibet.
We’re expecting a tight, tactical clash – the type of match that Conte thrives in. His knowledge of Roma from his time in Serie A will work in his favour as he looks for three valuable points.
Despite the six-goal thriller at Stamford Bridge, goals may be harder to come by here. A 1-0 Chelsea win looks a good bet at 11.0 with bet365.
Alvaro Morata will be the man responsible for providing the goal threat for the visitors, and we’re predicting him to score the first goal at 5.3 with bet365.
Chelsea vs AS Roma Form
Chelsea travel to face Roma on Tuesday night. The Blues can qualify for the last 16 if they win and Atletico Madrid fail to beat Qarabag at home, although they will be in for a difficult night at a red hot Stadio Olimpico.
Chelsea have been in fairly indifferent form so far this season. Their 3-3 draw with Roma in the last matchday leaves the group up in the air, although after a three match winless streak they have recovered well with wins over Watford and Everton since then.
Chelsea Form: WWDLLW
Despite lying in 5th place in Serie A (with a game in hand), Roma are in good form and were more than good value for their 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge. They have lost twice at home this season though to Inter and Napoli, and drew with Atletico in the first matchday.
Roma Form: WWDLWW
Roma vs Chelsea Head To Head (H2H)
Chelsea have faced Roma five times in their history, most recently in the return fixture two weeks ago. They also met in the Group Stage back in 2008/09, with Chelsea winning 1-0 at Stamford Bridge but losing 3-1 away at Stadio Olimpico.

Chelsea Team News
