It’s arguably the Premier League’s last stand in this season’s Champions League when Chelsea take on Galatasaray in the 2nd leg of their last 16 tie at Stamford Bridge tonight.
With Manchester United’s predicament not looking too clever, Chelsea are looking like English football’s only real prospect of any sort of success in Europe’s elite competition.
The Blues are favourites to go through having secured an away goal in Turkey when the sides drew 1-1 in the first leg, and are currently a best price of 2/11 with Bet365 (£200 Sign Up Bonus)to qualify for the next round.
Galatasaray know they need away goals, not an easy task away to Chelsea, and as a result the Turkish side are a best price of 4/1 with BetVictor to qualify.
Unsurprisingly Chelsea are also favourites in the 90 minute betting, 2/5 with Bet365, but with Chelsea not needing to win, that could be a slightly risky bet at that price.
Galatasaray are a best price of 17/2 with Betfair, they have never won before in England and have a poor record of only 4 wins from 19 on the road this season.
A high scoring draw is probably the best chance for the Turkish side to progress tonight, the draw is a best price of 4/1 with Bet365.
Onto the money back specials and enhanced prices, and if Didier Drogba scores during the 90 minutes (extra time not included), Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score & Scorecast singles on the match, in the form of a free bet.
Meanwhile, Ladbrokes have boosted Chelsea’s odds to 1/2 to beat Drogba’s Galatasaray side if you select the Blues in a five-fold, or greater, accumulator bet.
