Bookie: Eto'o more likely to score than Chelsea icon

Former Chelsea star Didier Drogba is likely to go up against Samuel Eto'o this evening.

Popular bookmaker Boylesports have made Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o the ever so slight favourite to score ahead of former Chelsea star Didier Drogba when Galatasaray take on Chelsea in the Champions League this evening.

There would have been smiles breaking out all around West London when Chelsea were given the chance to go up against Drogba and the Blues icon is 13/5 to score first with Eto’o at 15/8. Both players need to start for those prices to stand.

Chelsea have never quite been able to fill the void which was created when Drogba left the club and they have rotated their centre forwards frequently this season with Eto’o, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba all leading the attack at different points.

Chelsea remain a decent outside bet at 12/1 to win the Champions League for the second time this season and if they get back to the Bridge still in the game, they will be favourites to progress to the last eight.
