Qarabag have come a long way since losing 6-0 to Chelsea on Matchday 1 but the Blues should still be too strong in their second Champions League encounter.
Antonio Conte’s side can book a place in the last 16 if successful in Azerbaijan and will be keen to get the job done before hosting Atletico Madrid next month.
We’re snapping up 23/20 for a clinical away win to nil in our Qarabag vs Chelsea betting predictions.
A Look At Qarabag’s Betting Odds
Qarabag deserve great credit for the spirit shown since that Stamford Bridge debacle, with a solid display in a 2-1 home loss to Roma giving them the belief that they can compete at this level.
Holding Atletico to a goalless draw in Baku was a feather in the cap, but to then also pick up a point in Madrid was a truly memorable effort.
The underdogs were grateful for several fine saves from Ibrahim Sehic in Spain but deserved the draw after Michel had headed them in front and only a stunning strike by Thomas Partey levelled the scores.
“We’re enjoying the Champions League so much,” said manager Qurban Qurbanov. “We’re learning a lot and we’ll be respected for playing games like these.”
That last point could work against Qarabag, though, as there is now no chance of Chelsea underestimating their opponents.
It won’t be as one-sided as the game in London, but we like 21/4 for a 2-0 away victory from the Qarabag vs Chelsea odds.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea looked set to power through this pool when following up that big win over Qarabag with a richly-deserved 2-1 triumph at Atletico Madrid.
However, they were a touch fortunate to secure a share of the spoils in a 3-3 home draw against Roma and were then put to the sword in a 3-0 loss in the Italian capital.
That defeat could have been even more damaging as Roma ran riot in the second half and Conte reacted by calling for his players to show more “stability” and “desire” in the future.
That was the case in a 1-0 Premier League win over Manchester United five days later and the manager will demand just as much focus in Baku.
As the hosts were almost overwhelmed by Atletico Madrid early on, we’re taking 21/20 for the Blues to lead at half-time and full-time to complete our Qarabag vs Chelsea betting tips.
Atletico Madrid 1-1 QARABAG – Michel
Roma 3-0 CHELSEA
