Chelsea vs Man Utd – Ancelotti has 100% home record against Man Utd
John Terry and his Chelsea side are out to avenge their 2008 Champions League final defeat when Manchester United visit Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, and with Carlo Ancelotti at the helm, Chelsea will be confident.
Sir Alex Ferguson has got the better of his Italian counterpart on just two occasions – once in the Charity Shield, and in the 2006/07 Champions League semi-final first leg at Old Trafford – but the Manchester United manager has never got the better of Ancelotti on his home turf.
Considering Manchester United haven’t won any of their last nine matches, Chelsea look overpriced at 11/10 to win but considering how little there is between these two sides, it’s sure to be a tight game.
Manchester United are 5/2 to win and have only lost one of their last 21 matches away from home in Champions League, but as Chelsea have only lost two of their last 41 Champions League matches at Stamford Bridge and the draw screams value at 23/10.
Manchester United have a 100% record against English teams in Europe – four wins from four – and with the two sides boasting strong records, a stalemate could occur.
One thing you can guarantee is that goals will come at a premium in this game and while short, the 4/7 for under 2.5 goals looks the bet of the game.
Manchester United have scored just nine goals in eight Champions League games this season and have just three goals in their last eight trips to Stamford Bridge, but at the same time they have the best defence in the Champions League this season and a 0-0 result isn’t out of the question at 7/1.
1-1 is the favoured result at 11/2 but if one team is to win it, the home advantage is a big plus for Chelsea and a 1-0 win is also available at 11/2.
A £20 stake on Lampard scoring first and Chelsea winning 1-0 would return £620. New customers can sign up here to get up to £60 in free bets.
