Chelsea v Monterrey, Yokohama, 10.30am, live on BBC

I KNOW more about Monterey cheese than Monterrey the football team but looking at the prices bookies expect a comfortable win for the European champions.

The Blues enter the tournament at the semi-final stage and face are the CONCACAF champions from Mexico who are no mugs.

However, Rafa Benitez's men are no bigger than 8-15 to win with bet365. Monterrey had to come through a quarter-final match to make the last four and beat Koreans Ulsan Hyundai to reach this stage.

Benitez, who won the World Club Cup with Inter Milan in 2010, will want do well on the big stage after crashing out of the Champions League and will have been lifted by recent wins against Nordsjaelland and Sunderland.

Crucially, Fernando Torres scored two goals in each of those games and is 9-2 with Paddy Power favourite to break the deadlock and 6-5 at Paddy Power to score at any time.

His fellow Spaniard Juan Mata has hit three in his last three and is 19-10 with unibet to net again.

Monterrey score plenty and have kept just one clean sheet in their last 12 in all competitions, including the victory over Ulsan. Former Lyon winger Cesar Delgado netted twice against the Koreans and is 5-1 at Paddy Power to hit the target against Chelsea.

Monterrey sit seventh in the Mexican league so you have to imagine Chelsea will win if they're in the mood.

    Just had 50p winner in play correct score at the tennis 7-5 to a random paid 10/1. Stuck £3 Chelsea ht 2.025 and £2.50 Chelsea -1 5/4.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, correct scores at tennis, you’re mad. As you say Chelsea are on the red button.

  4. Craig alves 12 years ago

    Think it’s on the red button at half 10, highlights on BBC 2 at half 1 too. Danny, ¬£5 on your double but took central coast -1 AH for ¬£17 hope your right

  5. rob erskine 12 years ago

    I’ve took Chelsea and Chelsea -1. If anyone wants to back Monterey now’s the time, I’m sure they’ll win now my moneys on Chelsea

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Rob, looks a big gulf between the teams but you never at 1-0 anything can happen but Chelsea should be on easy street by now.

  6. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Only got £22 in my bet365 account so stuck £16 on Torres first and £6 on Torres last @ 9/2.

    Racing post also tipping Torres first goal

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, I couldn’t pick between Torres and Mata for first so went anytime Torres and hopefully he’ll come in last for you.

  7. rob erskine 12 years ago

    David luiz has been immense. Looks like he’d make a better midfielder than defender

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Rob, some people have always said that about Luiz. Credit Benitez for actually doing something about. Happy to get my Torres goal and if it stays this way Chris Guy will be paid on Torres to score last unless he’s bet with a bookie who takes bets on OGs.

    Just had a small bet on Monterrey scoring a goal, sometimes these in play things can be good

  10. John 12 years ago

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      John, lucky for you Chelsea switched off totally at the end.

  11. Craig alves 12 years ago

    What times these 2 Australian games KO at, says 8.30 on oddschecker but still no results, not even on livescore. Got both Chelsea bets up tho

    • Danny 12 years ago

  12. rob erskine 12 years ago

    Nice little earner for the a.m and some nice football to watch. Love the fans singing one di matteo in Japan lol

  13. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Feck off. There goes my Torres last goal. Even more painful when you lose in the dying seconds. Still to experience when a list minute goal turns a losing bet into a winning bet. It always seems to be the other way around for me or maybe I just remember them more.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, that was bad luck. Chelsea not interested at the end and the guy who scored had so much time and space.

  14. Craig alves 12 years ago

    Ah a see, it’s only 13th today haha, got it on for tomorrow anyway but got ¬£11 suhin in bet365 account. Need to turn it into ¬£250 by 13th Jan cos got stung wi a fine today for nought. Theres my xmas plans out the window. Will see Milan line up and if Pirlo el sharawy etc start then go half on -1 & other half on winning at ht. Seems a decent bet for short priced favs
