Chelsea to Win Second-Half

Thomas Tuchel's men are unbeaten in the 2021/22 campaign, winning thrice and drawing once. In their most recent outing against Aston Villa, they reigned supreme once again. They scored twice after the break and we expect them to push the tempo after 45 minutes of action against Zenit St Petersburg.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

In two of their last three matches, the total number of goals involving Chelsea has been less than three. We expect them to continue this trend as they start their Champions League defence in earnest. Our expectations are further supported by the Russians recent form, which has seen less than three total goals in three of their last four matches.

Both Teams to Score – No

The Russian Premier League season started in mid of July and the two months since Zenit has remained untouchable. That run will come to an end against the European champions, who have only conceded once. With Chelsea appearing as the dominant defensive outlet in England and Europe, we expect them to keep a clean sheet at home.

Match Preview of Chelsea vs Zenit

Chelsea to test Zenit's resolve at Stamford Bridge

Thomas Tuchel earned his place in Chelsea's record books by delivering their second Champions League title. The German can immortalize himself in West London with a successful defence, a feat in the realm of possibility. With the arrival of Romelu Lukaku, they have a genuine goalscoring threat. Couple this with their unassailable defence, and all the ingredients are present for continued success.

But before the Blues can start dreaming of lofty goals, they have a tough task on their hands in the form of Zenit St Petersburg. Sergei Semak's men are unbeaten this season and nearing two months of sustained success in the Russian Premier League. They will be wary of the English giants but will not afford them any respect that what is due. The fact that they are unbeaten in ten competitive away fixtures will also add to their confidence.
