After the loss to Bayer Leverkusen with 2:1 (reversed from 0:1), Chelsea has really jeopardized their chances to qualify as first in Group E, and qualify at all. The team sits on the second position with 8 points, having scored 10 goals and conceded 4. Chelsea showed good condition this weekend, winning their away match on St. James Park against Newcastle with 0:3. Didier Drogba seems to be getting back in shape, having scored the last goal in Champions League in the game with Leverkusen, and scoring the first and most important goal against Newcastle. Chelsea’s record against Spanish teams on home soil reads W7 D4 L1. A goalless draw or a victory is what the Blues need from tonight’s game to move to the next stage of Champions League.

Valencia started this campaign in the worst imaginable way, with two draws and a loss and many had scratched them off for qualifications. However now a round before the group stage ends, they would need a scoring draw or a victory to advance to the next stage against Chelsea. Even thought Valencia recorded two victories in a row, they have been at home, and in the group stage, the team has no victory on away soil. Valencia has drawn each of their last four visits in England, with the most recent one, last season 1:1 against Manchester United. The same result today will put them on the second position and qualify them for the next stage.
Two previous meetings between both teams here on Stamford Bridge:
11/12/2007 UEFA Champions League, Group B Chelsea vs. Valencia 0:0
04/04/2007 UEFA Champions League Chelsea vs. Valencia 1:1
Two draw games, one with goals and one without. Ironically each team needs one of those, to advance, but expect Chelsea to push for the victory here as hard as they can. Back Chelsea to win this match at 8/11 with bet365.
Judging by the previous two games here, and the big stakes in this match, neither team would want to be careless and concede an early goal. The game should be pretty closed on goal opportunities. Back this match to end Under 2.5 Goals at 1/1 with bet365.
