Chelsea to crush Cluj

Chelsea, Updated:

Joe Cole could return on Tuesday against CFR Cluj to ensure Chelsea book their place in the knockout stage of the Champions League.

Last year's beaten finalists take on the Group A no-hopers in a game they must win to reach the lucrative phase of Europe's elite club competition and England midfielder Cole, who has been carrying an ankle knock, is expected to make his comeback.
Luiz Felipe Scolari's side have struggled away from home but victories at Stamford Bridge over Bordeaux and Roma should stand them in good stead for what, on paper at least, looks a formality.

Frank Lampard, who will miss the game because of suspension, believes it is time for Chelsea to put down a marker by blowing the Romanians away.
He said: "It is important that against Cluj, the atmosphere is big and the players stand up and act like men, getting hold of the ball and making things happen."
Chelsea will start as overwhelming favourites to win and punters expecting a goals fest can make use of their £10 free bet to check out the Over-Under 4.5 goals market.
The Blues have also not conceded a goal at home in Europe, so the clean sheet market could hold some value, while the importance of the fixture could generate some interest in the Half Time/Full Time markets.
