Schalke 04 - Chelsea Betting Tips

There's a crunch game at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen, with our tipster backing goals in this Champions League clash.

Chelsea travel to Germany to face Schalke in gameweek three of this season's Champions League. The Germans top Group E, winning both of their games so far this season, with the Blues trailing them by three points after a win and a loss.

Jose Mourinho knows this game cannot be lost, as it would send Jens Keller's men six points ahead of them, making winning the group a tough task.

However, with Chelsea coming into this game in free scoring form, you can expect the Blues to come out firing this evening.

With five wins in their last six, Mourinho's side is starting to take shape after his return to Stamford Bridge, and Bet365 price them as favourites at 2.30.

After a sloppy start to the season, Schalke have really come into form over the past few weeks. Since losing to Hannover in the Bundesliga at the end of August, Keller's side have won eight of their last 10 matches, with their only loss coming against Bayern Munich.

The Royal Blues thumped Steaua Bucharest in their opening Champions League game, before fighting past Basel 1-0. Bet365 price them at 3.30 to take the three points. The same firm price the draw at 3.50.

A bet that stands out in this fixture is over 2.5 goals at 1.80 with Bet365.

With the both teams to score bet too short at 2.20, it's well worth backing three or more goals when you consider these teams aren't shy in front of goal.

This bet would have paid out in six of Schalke's last seven matches, as well as four of Chelsea's last five.

This bet would have landed in five of the Blues' last six matches, and with Mourinho's side scoring 11 goals in their last three matches, it's tough to ignore this bet.
