Roma to down Chelsea in Champions League thriller

Chelsea and Roma played out a 3-3 thriller at Stamford Bridge in the last round of Champions League matches, and that pair will lock horns again on Tuesday night, and we are set for another stunning tie between the Group C pacesetters, with the sides doing battle in the Italian capital.

  • Chelsea and Roma drew 3-3 in their last meeting
  • Edin Dzeko and Eden Hazard scored two goals each in last match
  • Roma have won their last three matches 1-0

Tips Roma to win    Best Bet @ 17 / 10  

How Will It Go?

Eden Hazard's 75th minute strike rescued Chelsea from suffering their first defeat of their Champions League campaign, as the Belgian star bagged his second goal of the match, but Roma were the dominant force for large patches of that six-goal cracker, and with home advanatge they will face downing the Blues on Tuesday, and they are a best-priced 17/10 with bet365 to bag the win.

A 1-0 win against Bologna in Serie A at the weekend saw them record their eighth league win in ten matches, and it was their third 1-0 win on the spin since that aforementioned draw at Stamford Bridge, so you have to feel if they can continue that sort of form on Tuesday then they could well leapfrog Chelsea into top spot with a win.

The abovementioned Hazard struck in the second half of Chelsea's Premier League match with Bournemouth to land a 1-0 win of their own, and Antonio Conte's side are 7/4 with Unibet to down Roma in this tie, while the draw is 13/5 with Betfair, but Chelsea looked far from impressive against Roma last time out, and may prove vulnerable on their travels.

Defensive frailties often handed Roma some notable chances, and Edin Dzeko, in particular, caused havoc amongst the Chelsea rearguard, and if the former Manchester City frontman can sparkle once again on Tuesday, then he could be the defining factor of Roma soaring to eight points in Group C after four matches.
Match Odds:

Roma Can Dominate From First Whistle

Chelsea face a tough home fixture with Manchester United at the weekend, so it would be no surprise to see Conte rest the odd key player for the trip to Italy, as he will fancy qualifying for the last-16 despite defeat against Roma, and if the home side can build on that fine display at Stamford Bridge, then they could dominate from the start, so 100/30 with Ladbrokes for Roma to be leading at half-time and full-time is worth snapping up.

Dzeko To Ignite Roma Win

Dzeko was a thorn in Chelsea's side throughout the last meeting, and the Bosnian can sparkle once again on Tuesday, and at 51/10 with Unibet is a cracking bet to open the scoring, while the 28/17 with the same firm for him to score at anytime is another eye-catching bet.

Chelsea will look towards Hazard (7/1 with Unibet) and Alvaro Morata to try and break the deadlock, and the latter is the more attractive betting proposition at 9/2 to score first for Chelsea backers, but it's Dzeko that can prove to be a menace once again, and he can be the catalyst for a Roma win.
