Chelsea have already qualified for the last-16 of the Champions League to offer hope to Zenit St Petersburg that they can get something from Wednesday's final Group H match.

Zenit St Petersburg vs Chelsea Prediction

The clash in St Petersburg, which is the venue for this season's final in May, is a dead rubber with Zenit also assured of third place and a spot in the Europa League after Christmas.

That means the pressure is off both teams and, with changes expected, we could see an open and evenly-fought game. Blues boss Thomas Tuchel will want some sort of reaction following the 3-2 Premier League defeat at West Ham at the weekend but, in truth, it could be a much-changed side that faces the Russian champions and, considering Chelsea are a bit out of form lately, a draw may be the best he gets.

Chelsea are 4/7 favourites to win the match, which would be their fifth in the group stage this season, Zenit are 11/2 to come out on top and a draw is a tempting 67/20.

Zenit St Petersburg vs Chelsea Team News

Zenit centre-back Dmitri Chistyakov is suspended, goalkeeper Stanislav Kritsyuk is out with a serious knee injury so  Mikhail Kerzhakov will continue to deputise.

Iranian star Sardar Azmoun is pushing for a start but Malcom, Claudinho and Artem Dzyuba are expected to keep their places up front.

Ben Chilwell (knee), Trevor Chalobah (hamstring), N'Golo Kante (knee) and Mateo Kovacic (hamstring) are all out for the visitors, while Kai Havertz and Marcos Alonso are doubts with niggling injury issues.

Saul Niguez will hope for another chance from the start after failing to make much of an impact so far this season while fit-again Romelu Lukaku could make his first start since the middle of October.
