Bet of the Day: Chelsea to roll over Qarabag
The Blues should be far too strong

It’ll also be the Blues’ first Champions League game under Antonio Conte. He could rotate his side ahead of a big game against Arsenal on Sunday.
Whatever side he picks should have too much quality for Qarabag and the Coral News Bet of the Day is Chelsea to win and Over 3.5 Goals at 13/10.
Money on Michy?
Michy Batshuayi could make a rare start if Alvaro Morata is rested up front.
The Belgium international hasn’t had many chances to show his quality since joining and he’ll be eager to make it count.
You can get Batshuayi to score 2 or More Goals at 14/5.
Burst out of the Blocks
After four attempts just to reach the group stage, Qarabag will be determined to hold their own against Chelsea.
However, there’s a gulf in class between the two clubs. It’s likely a matter of when, rather than if, Chelsea make the breakthrough.
Therefore the Coral pick is for Chelsea in the Result after 15 minutes market at 5/2.
