All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge when Chelsea and Sevilla face each other at the start of the new Champions League campaign. Chelsea chiefs did well to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window, but the Blues have been having their ups and downs in the new Premier League campaign. Anyhow, Frank Lampard’s men are capable of beating Sevilla on home soil. Sportybet offers the best odds for this meeting.
The good news for the hosts is that N’Golo Kante should recover in time to face los Sevillanos. The La Liga outfit did well to win the Europa League trophy last term, and they are now on a quest to record a good result in the elite competition. Julen Lopetegui is doing a good job with the Andalusian club, but beating Chelsea in London is easier said than done. The Blues are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and they are likely to kick off the new Champions League campaign with a win.

HIGHLIGHTED PLAYER (N GOLO KANTE):
Born in Paris in 1991, N’Golo Kante spent his early career playing for French minnows Boulogne and Caen, but he didn’t need a lot of time to catch the eye of high-profile clubs. The holding midfielder was on the verge of joining Marseille in the summer of 2015 when Leicester City submitted a £5.6 million for his services and he eventually signed for the King Power Stadium outfit.
Destiny appears to have played a part in the move as Kante would go on to become one of leading Premier League footballers in an unbelievable season that ended with the Foxes winning the Premiership trophy. Having deservedly been nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award, Kante would also receive the first ever call-up for the national team in March 2016, and he impressed in his first two appearances, scoring a goal in the 4-2 triumph over Russia.
A combative midfielder with an amazing pair of lungs, Kante impressed Premier League fans and pundits alike, and he will probably go down as one of the best holding midfielders to have ever played for an English club.
