Maccabi Tel-Aviv v Chelsea Preview, Champions League, Group G, Tuesday 24th November 2015

Maccabi Tel Aviv head into this game currently bottom of the group having lost all four of their matches played and with no real chance to qualify for the knock out stages, I can’t reall see them putting up too much of a fight in this one, despite having won their last two league matches on the domestic front.

Chelsea bounced back to some kind of form over the weekend with a 1-0 victory at home against Norwich City and with Jose Mourinho’s side currently second in the group and 2pts clear of third place Dinamo Kiev, a victory on Tuesday night should see the current premiership defending champions in pole position to book their place in the knock out stages of the tournament.

Maccabi Tel-Aviv Team News:

The hosts have almost a full squad available for this game but will be without Dejan Radonjic who is suffering with a calf injury, but former Chelsea defender Tal Ben Haim is expected to be passed fit.

Chelsea Team News:

The visitors also have almost a full squad available for this game but will be without both goalkpeer Thibaut Courtois and striker Radamel Falcao who have not made the trip with the rest of the squad.

Maccabi Tel-Aviv v Chelsea Head to Head Statistics:

Tuesday night’s game from the Sammy Ofer Stadium will become only the second meeting between the two clubs over the years. Chelsea won the only other meeting played between the two clubs in the reverse fixture of group g, beating Maccabi Tel Aviv 4-0.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

4 Goals have been scored in the previous 1 match played between the two clubs over the years, which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 4.00.

With only one game to go on from an average goals per game statistics point of view it’s difficult to really make a confident prediction of how many goals this game might see on Tuesday night.

However, with Chelsea having hammered four goals past Maccabi Tel Aviv at Stamford Bridge, I would expect this game to see a minimum of at least a couple of goals scored.

Maccabi Tel-Aviv v Chelsea Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Depsite heading into this game as the side in slightly better form recently, it really is impossible to give the hosts any real chance of causing an upset in this game on Tuesday night as with having lost all of their previous four group games and no possible chance to qualify for the knock out stages of the competition, I can’t really see them being up for this match.

Chelsea will be fully aware that a victory would put them on the verge of securing their place in the last 16 of the competition and although Jose Mourinho’s side have been a mere shadow of the side we saw last season, the should still have enough about them to win this match.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Chelsea Half Time/Full Time as I fully expect them to try and score an early goal to silence the crowd and once they get their head in front, there should be no turning back.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be Chelsea midfielder Willian to score the first goal of the game as with the player now responsible for most of the free-kicks around the are, I can see him as a real chance from a dead ball situation to fire his side in front.
