Chelsea v Milan Betting Tips & Predictions

Chelsea are odds-on favourites for the visit of Milan in a pivotal Champions League Group C clash on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge.

With just one point from two matches, Chelsea need a positive result when they face Milan on Wednesday evening.

The Serie A giants top the section with four points thus far, but they are severely depleted for this fixture with Mike Miagnan, Theo Hernandez, Divock Origi, Alessandro Florenzi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic all sidelined. 

Chelsea got their first win of the Graham Potter era at the weekend, thanks to a late screamer from Conor Gallagher. 

Winner: Chelsea 

8/11 (Betfair)

Chelsea are still a work in progress under Potter, and the defence has been particularly vulnerable, allowing both Salzburg and Crystal Palace plenty of opportunities.

Backing the hosts to win here is down to a mixture of home advantage and Milan’s injury crisis. 

Along with the aforementioned quintet of confirmed absentees, Davide Calabria, Alexis Saelemaekers and Simon Kjaer also went off injured at the weekend. 

The hosts have looked much better in possession in their 180 minutes since Potter took over.

With Milan not having kept a clean sheet since August, Chelsea should be able to create enough to win this one.

Both Teams To Score: Yes

20/23 (Paddy Power)

Milan may exercise a degree of caution, knowing a draw would be a great result.

Despite that, both teams to score looks like a great value wager for this match. Milan have conceded at least once in six consecutive matches in all competition. 

Both teams have scored in six of Chelsea’s last eight matches, and they haven’t kept a clean sheet in that period. 

Total Cards: Over 3.5

8/11 (BetVictor)

Only Ajax are committing more fouls per game in the Champions League than Milan.

These teams have combined for only seven cards across two matches, but this is expected to be a fiercely competitive encounter and could become feisty in midfield.

Chelsea will play with intensity, but if Milan play through the press, some counter-stopping challenges could lead to cards.

The ball-carrying of Chelsea’s wide players could lead to some rash tackles, too.
