Chelsea vs Milan Bet Builder: Wednesday, October, 5th

We’ve got some Chelsea vs Milan bet builder tips for you ahead of Wednesday’s clash. Milan top Group E but are just three points above Chelsea in 4th. A win for the home side here would blow this group wide open so it should be a very entertaining affair. Chelsea have made it deep into the knockout rounds in recent seasons, so improvements need to be made quickly to replicate that this time.

Chelsea vs Milan Preview

Wednesday, October 5th, 20:00 (UK)

Chelsea came from a goal behind to win 2-1 at Crystal Palace on Saturday, and there are still a lot of question marks about the side. The Blues’ poor start to the season cost Thomas Tuchel his job, but there is plenty of excitement surrounding the appointment of Graham Potter despite his lack of experience at an elite level football club.

Milan won the Scudetto last season, and it looks as though they are going to be involved in another title race this season. They are three points behind the leaders in Serie A and they are looking to stamp their authority in Europe this season as well. It has been a few years since any of the Italian teams posed a threat in Europe, and it is difficult to see how the former European giants will break into the pack of teams that have dominated this competition in recent years.

Chelsea remain unbeaten at home this season, but they did get held to a draw in Potter’s first game at Stamford Bridge. Milan are unbeaten away from home this season. Their only loss was a 2-1 defeat at the San Siro to high-flying Napoli.

Chelsea vs Milan Stats & Facts

  • Milan have scored in nine of their 10 matches in all competitions so far this season.
  • Chelsea have kept just one clean sheet so far this season.
  • Milan are averaging 9.8 shots per game in their last 10 Champions League away matches.
  • Chelsea are averaging 22.13 tackles per game this season.

As a single, both teams to score in the match is priced at 1.80 with bet365. Chelsea’s only clean sheet so far this season came in their season opener against Everton, while Milan have only failed to score in one of their last 10 matches. Although they’ve started the season poorly, Chelsea have only failed to score in two of their nine matches, so I fancy both sides to find the net here.

Chelsea have made 24 and 30 tackles in their two group matches so far. The importance of three points here should mean they get stuck in from the off. Milan’s Champions League opponents have made 18 and 29 tackles in matches so far this season. The home side’s tackles line set at 18 looks a good bet here as a result.

Chelsea have been good at restricting the number of opportunities afforded to their opponents in recent matches. So far this season, their opponents are averaging less than nine shots per game. Milan represent a step up in class, but Chelsea’s opponents so far in the group have had just 4 and 6 shots. Milan are averaging 9.8 shots per game in their last 10 Champions League away games, so I’m going to add under 10.5 shots for the visitors to our builder here.

My final pick is Chelsea to win the match. The three points are vital for Chelsea’s ambitions in this competition, and I’m expecting further improvements from the side who have just changed their manager. Milan have won just three of their last 10 European away games, and I think Chelsea will rise to the challenge here.

  • Both Teams To Score
  • Over 17.5 Tackles For Chelsea
  • Under 10.5 Milan Shots
  • Chelsea To Win
