The Blues tough to beat.
Chelsea go into this encounter on the back of a nice streak of league wins. In recent matches, The Blues split the points in 0-0 draw against Tottenham, followed by an impressive 4-0 win against Sevilla in the Champions League before hammering Leeds 3-1 in the last match.
While 3 wins in the last 6 matches on home turf is a decent return, The Blues will probably need a bit more focus to claim a win this coming Tuesday.
FC Krasnodar hope to stop the rot.
A win for FC Krasnodar last week can’t cover the fact that league form has been awful in recent weeks. In the last 3 matches, FC Krasnodar managed to win 1-0 against FC Tambov, followed by a close 2-1 defeat against Sevilla in the Champions League and most recent a narrow 1-0 win against Rennes in the Champions League.
With a mediocre away record of 5 defeats from their last 6 games, FC Krasnodar will do well to steer clear of a dropping on Tuesday.
