Before Betting On Chelsea vs AC Milan

It has been far from an ideal start to the Champions League this season for Chelsea, as they come into their third matchday fixture sitting bottom of Group E with just a single point. Milan is the current leader in the group, as they have picked up a victory and a draw from their opening two fixtures in the Champions League this term.

This is a first meeting between these two European heavyweights since the group stages of the Champions League in the 1999-2000 season. On that occasion, both fixtures in the group stage ended in draws, including a 0-0 stalemate at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have a fine home record in European fixtures, as they have been beaten on just two occasions in their previous 13 meetings against Italian opposition. Meanwhile, Milan have claimed just a single victory from their previous 20 trips to England, with that only success coming against Manchester United back in February of 2005. 

Both sides come into this fixture after domestic wins in their previous matches. Milan were 3-1 winners on the road against Empoli, with Ante Rebic and Rafael Leao scoring in the win. Meanwhile, Connor Gallagher struck his first Chelsea goal against Crystal Palace in a 2-1 victory on Saturday.
