Chelsea’s defence of the Champions League crown gets underway this evening, and Labrokes are offering a money back special on the match against Italian champions Juventus.
If Eden Hazard scores the first or last goal in the Chelsea v Juventus match this evening, Ladbrokes
will refund losing first goalscorer stakes as a free bet.
Fernando Torres heads the first goalscorer betting at 5/1, with Daniel Sturridge, Sebastien Giovinco, Alessandro Matri and Mirko Vucinic all available at odds of 7/1. Eden Hazard, Frank Lampard and Fabio Quagliarella are all priced at 8/1, with Juan Mata and Nicklas Bendtner both 9/1.
Last season the Blues finally delivered the trophy that owner Roman Abramovich had been craving – and they did it in spectacular fashion. They came back from the brink to oust Napoli and then ousted Barcelona despite a red card for John Terry, but they saved the best for last by beating Bayern Munich on penalties in the final – at the German’s club’s own stadium.
They now kick off their defence against a Juventus side that went unbeaten as they wrapped up the Serie A title last season, and the Italians will provide a stern test for Roberto Di Matteo and his men at Stamford Bridge this evening.
Chelsea are 6/5 to enjoy a winning start to the competition, with Juventus 12/5 to leave with all off the spoils. The draw, which the visitors would almost certainly accept, can be backed at odds of 11/5.
