Zenit vs Chelsea prediction

The Blues were made to work for the three points in their 1-0 win over a stubborn Zenit side at Stamford Bridge, and it won’t be any easier for them away from home.

Zenit don’t have anything to play for though and despite a stumbling run in the league, Chelsea showed their class in Europe in their last match as they dismantled Juventus. A win will secure top spot for Tuchel’s side, and they are good enough to get it.

Zenit 0-2 Chelsea
