Chelsea

Last season Chelsea won the main club trophy in Europe. In the Champions League final, the capital team unexpectedly managed to defeat Manchester City, which brought the coveted title.

In the English championship the "retirees" stopped only at the fourth position. Such a result brought 19 victories and 10 peaceful outcomes, which was enough to get into the four strongest representatives of the Premier League.

In the summer Romelu Lukaku came to London to strengthen the team, for whom they gave 115 million euros and Saul Niguez from Atletico (5 million). The first victory in the new football year was the success in the UEFA Super Cup, where the Blues beat Villarreal on penalties.

After four rounds of the current championship of the Premier League of England, Thomas Tuchel's charges chalked up three victories over Crystal Palace (3:0), Arsenal (2:0) and Aston Villa (3:0), which brought them ten points and second position. It is impossible not to note only one goal conceded in four matches.

Pulisic will not be able to play today and Kante, who has an ankle injury.

Zenit

Last season Zenit once again won the Russian championship. St. Petersburg deservedly won, being ahead of the nearest opponent by eight points, while showing the best attack performance, which scored 2.5 goals per tournament on average.

In the summer Claudinho from RB Bragantino (12 million), Dmitry Chistyakov from Rostov (3.25 million) and the goalkeeper of Zhil Vicente Stanislav Kritsyuk (2 million) came to reinforce the roster.

Sergei Semak's players celebrated the new football year with a victory over Lokomotiv in the Russian Super Cup (3:0). The start of the Premier League tournament brought five victories and two peaceful outcomes, which corresponds to 17 points and the first position in the table. The blue-white-blue won the last two duels against CSKA (1:0) and “Akhmat” (3:1).

In the infirmary is Ozdoev and the appearance on the field of Karavaev is in doubt.

Prediction

Zenit has an open streak of 20 unbeaten matches. The Russian champion is in good shape, but the current Champions League winner is very good in recent fights. Moreover, at Stamford Bridge the chances of any opponent tend to zero.

In our opinion, today Chelsea are more powerful in the selection of performers and, due to the class and support of the stands, they will be able to score the first three points.

Our prediction is an Asian handicap (-2) at Chelsea and we bet on this on the line of BC 1xBet with odds of 2.09.

Guests from St. Petersburg will play defensively, hoping to maintain the status quo, but they will hardly be able to hold off the onslaught of the Chelsea attack. We assume that the defeat will be avoided and the “pensioners” will win with a difference of only two goals.

Second bet is for Chelsea to win by two goals in 3.76.
