Last games

They have only faced each other once in their history and it happened last September 14 when the "Blues" won by the minimum difference at home with a goal by Romelu Lukaku.
10:23 AM2 months ago

Key player Chelsea

Much has been said about him, but Jorginho has been fundamental in the last year and a half, with his good recovery in midfield and his ability to distribute balls, so from his boots he starts the offensive play.

10:18 AM2 months ago

Key player Zenit

Claudinho could be the man to watch for the Russian team because, after collaborating with a double in the draw against Rostov, Zenit needs him to appear in the final zone to have chances to get a positive result.

Chelsea: not to relax

Chelsea is aiming for great things for next year but, to close 2021, they have to not fall into overconfidence and use their best weapons to not fall to second place in the sector and thus avoid the heavyweights; in the group stage they accumulate 4 wins for one setback and come from losing in the Premier League 3-2 at the hands of West Ham.

Zenit: to say goodbye with a win

What could be better for Zenit after a complicated tournament than to beat the reigning champion and give their fans some joy, however, Zenit will have to prioritize the defensive aspect and helped by the weather and their fans, be able to get a positive result to avoid having to depend on Malmo's game.
9:53 AM2 months ago

How is Group H of the Champions League going?

Chelsea is already qualified in this sector with 12 points, just like Juventus, but needs a win to secure the first place in the group; Zenit is third with four points and needs at least a draw to secure its place in the UEFA Europa League.
