The stats that suggest a heavy European win for Chelsea tomorrow

Stamford Bridge Outside

Chelsea are ahead of Champions League opponents Maribor in a number of key areas.

Chelsea V Maribor

The stats suggest that in short, Chelsea shouldn’t have any problems seeing off Maribor in the Champions League with a big win.

The Blues are ahead in plenty of key areas based on the Champions League so far and Jose Mourinho has already targeted back-to-back wins over Maribor to reach the ten point mark, which should be enough to put the Blues into the next round.

Chelsea are more creative in attack, which is demonstrated by the fact they have made more big chances. However, Mourinho won’t be happy that his players have only converted two of them.

Chelsea are more aggressive in terms of defence and attack with more tackles, as they look to win back possession quickly and more dribble contests won, which suggests their players are more willing to run at the opposition and take them on.

Chelsea are also more accurate in terms of their passing, which suggests they should be able to control this game, wear down their opponents and eventually secure the openings to score.

Chelsea have been professional in the Champions League so far this season and this match demonstrates an opportunity for the Blues to play more open, attacking and entertaining football.

Conclusion: Nothing other than a Chelsea win.
