MOL Vidi vs Chelsea
UEFA Europa League. Kick-off: 5.55pm, Thursday 13th October. Live on BT Sport 2.
CHELSEA have been in cruise control so far in the Europa League, easing to five victories while scoring 10 goals and conceding just once.
It would have been easy for new boss Maurizio Sarri to treat the tournament with disrespect, fielding shadow sides packed with kids, but he has sent out pretty strong teams in every game.
That's a testament to the depth of his squad but a few youngsters could be given a chance to shine on this trip to Hungary as it comes in the middle of a busy run of fixtures. That's reflected in the odds with the Blues 4/6 with 888 Sport for another win, which may appeal for punters looking to add to an acca.
MOL Vidi are 9/2 outsiders but I like the look of the draw at 13/5, given Chelsea only beat the Hungarians 1-0 at Stamford Bridge and could play an inexperienced side.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was handed a start up front in the last group game with PAOK Salonika and may be given another opportunity with top spot already sealed in the section.
The kid scored against PAOK to cap a lively display and could repeat the trick here. He's 13/2 to net first with 888 Sport and 5/2 for anytime scorer which looks a great option.
Other talented young players such as Welsh defender Ethan Ampadu and England midfielder Ruben Loftus Cheek will probably be handed starts.
If you're looking for a long shot with great odds then Ampadu is 29/1 to open the scoring and 13/1 for anytime scorer with 888 Sport.
Loftus Cheek is much more likely to net, however, and the playmaker looks a good bet at 24/5 for anytime scorer, with the odds stretched to 23/2 with 888 Sport to net first.
Georgi Milanov hit MOL Vidi's winner when they beat PAOK 1-0 at home and looks the best shout to make an impact for the Hungarians. He's 23/2 to break the deadlock with 888 Sport and 19/4 to score at any time in the game.
- Draw 13/5 (888 Sport)
- Callum Hudson-Odoi anytime scorer 5/2 (888 Sport)
- Ruben Loftus Cheek anytime scorer 24/5
