Zenit vs Chelsea 08.12.2021

Zenit welcome the Blues to the Gazprom Arena in this final group game that means more to the visitors than themselves as they have already dropped to the Europa League with the top three positions in Group H already determined

Chelsea are coming into this game on the back of a 3-2 loss to West Ham in Saturday’s EPL early kickoff which cost them the top spot with the chasing pack of Man City and Liverpool making the most of it to dislodge them into third.

With Chelsea and Juventus tied on at the top of this group with 12 points apiece, we expect the Blues to go all in here and we are backing them to secure the win
