Chelsea head off to Belgium on Tuesday night with qualification in top spot in their Champions League firmly in their sight. New Chelsea boss Andre Villas Boas (or AVB as he has become known to the media) has had a rough week, with back to back Premier League defeats against QPR and Arsenal. Those defeats came under very different circumstances, but Villas Boas is not ready to give up on his attacking style of play yet. After hammering Genk 5-0 at Stamford Bridge a couple of weeks ago, Chelsea can take another big stride forward in their group with another big win. There is little doubt that Chelsea will be in the next round, but all eyes will be on their performance, as their defensive frailties have really been highlighted. Online bookmaker BetFred are running a great Champions League betting promotion for the Genk v Chelsea match.
