Ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League game against Valencia on Wednesday, Michael Owen has given his prediction.

Speaking to BetVictor, Owen said: “Valencia won the reverse fixture 1-0 at Stamford Bridge and a win for either side would see them through to the last 16.

“Valencia, Chelsea and Ajax are currently tied on seven points and this is a game Chelsea simply cannot afford to lose if they are to make the knock-out stages.

“With Lille to come at Stamford Bridge on Matchday six, a draw would not be a bad result for Frank Lampard’s side. Chelsea are unbeaten from three previous visits to the Mestalla (W2 D1) and I expect the Blues to come away with a valuable and hard-earned point.”

Owen’s prediction: game between Chelsea and Valencia to end in a draw.
