Tough trip to Russia awaits for Chelsea in UEFA Champions League Group E. Here is our preview, offds and prediction.
For such an expensively-assembled machine, Chelsea surely is sputtering from the starting line to the 2020-21 season.
The Blues have two straight 0-0 draws, one each in the UEFA Champions League and Premier League, and really need to kick the engine into second and third gear here Wednesday in Russia.
But the long trip across Europe is not alway conducive to playing attractive football: at this point, though, Chelsea just needs to find a couple goals and a win.
Look for that to happen Wednesday in Group E.
