Chelsea hosts Qarabag at Stamford Bridge this Tuesday, on a Champions’ League match.
In one of the most balanced groups in this Champions’ League group stage, Chelsea can’t afford to drop points at home to the weaker opponent in this group.
Besides these two, the group is formed by Roma and Atlético Madrid and one of them is going to be knocked out before the round of 16.
The Londoners are returning to the Champions League after winning the Premier League last season.
Their season debut was worrying, since they lost at home to Burnley. But they recovered quickly with some important wins over Tottenham, Leicester City and Everton, which are some of the best teams in the Premier League.

Chelsea vs Qarabag – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Last season’s champions in Azerbaijan, Qarabag Agdam will face very high-level opponent.
It is the first club in the history of Azerbaijan that will play in the Champions’ League group stage. They were domestic champions last season and then had to go through the Champions’ League qualifying stage.
On that stage, they’ve eliminated Samtredia, Sheriff Tiraspol and finally Copenhagen, in the playoff.
I don’t think that Chelsea will struggle to win easily at home against this team. The technical differences between the two sides are too much.
Their big achievement, which was reaching the group stage, is now complete.
And now, in this group, their participation will be only decisive to help figure out which team can score more goals against them.
