CHAMPIONS LEAGUE ... matchday 6


Valencia are in a mess, David Villa might wish to prove to the Blues that he should be their next big money signing, but even he has a bit to find at present. Not only are they struggling to win, but even a goal seems beyond them. They have not scored in 4 matches and only twice (opening two games) in five CL group fixtures. The quality of performance is just not there and they been given the run around by some very average La Liga sides in recent weeks.

Valencia could still qualify for a UEFA Cup spot, but that chance is very slim and they would be better off focusing on getting back into contention for a top 4 spot in the league, especially ahead of a visit from Barce at the weekend. Chelsea have already won the group, but will be keen to keep their good run going and may want a little revenge on the visitors who were the only side to take a group point away from Stamford Bridge last season. They do visit Arsenal on Sunday, but still, a home win for me.
This should be quite an open affair and the visitors have pledged to start with a 4-3-3 formation and not many teams will line up like that at the Bridge.

5 points Chelsea -1/2 ball 1.97 asian line

Good Luck.
