Valencia vs Chelsea Prediction: Champions League Match on 27.11.2019
Valencia host Chelsea at the Mestalla on Wednesday hoping for a repeat of their 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge on matchday one.
Since that game in September, Valencia have managed just one victory in the Champions League and suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Ajax.
Chelsea have picked up seven points in the group since that game and now sit level on points with both Ajax and Valencia in second place.
The Blues have also been in impressive form in the Premier League, taking 18 points from the last 21 available, with a six-game winning streak coming to an end over the weekend against champions Manchester City.
Valencia have a number of injury doubts for this match, with Francis Coquelin, Goncalo Guedes, Denis Cheryshev and Ezequiel Garay all possible absentees.
Meanwhile, Geoffrey Kondogbia is unlikely to return until next month and Cristiano Piccini is not set to be fit until February
N’Golo Kante made his return in the Premier League against City on the weekend, but Callum Hudson-Odoi is likely to miss out once again with a hamstring problem.
Ross Barkley could also miss out with an ankle problem, while Antonio Rudiger and Ruben Loftus-Cheek remain out following long-term injuries.
Valencia vs Chelsea Prediction
With Ajax, Chelsea and Valencia all level on seven points with two matches to go, a loss for either side in this match could spell an end to their chances of qualification.
Valencia still have to travel to Amsterdam to face Ajax on the last matchday of the group, which makes this game vital for their chances of qualification.
Chelsea on the other hand still have to face the bottom side Lille at Stamford Bridge, so a draw here gives them a fighting chance of qualification.
Overall, expect this game to end in a 1-1 draw with this group going down to the final match.
