Rafael Benitez knows that he simply has to not only win, but pray for results to go his way if he is to try and increase his popularity at Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard will take charge of his first game in Europe’s elite club competition for the London side, knowing that it could be easily be his last, as the same could be said of Fernando Torres.

The misfit has already reiterated in the press that he is enjoying his life in London and that his time at the club has ‘been a success’ – however it is apparent that Abramovich is slowly losing patience with his depreciating £50m asset, and a January move could be on the cards.

That said, the bookmakers expect Rafa Benitez to secure a convincing win at home, with Chelsea available at a paltry 1/8 across the board. Torres himself is fancied to find the net first, as the bookmakers price of 7/2 on the Spaniard testament to his past glory in the Champions League.

Nonetheless, the pressure is definitely on Chelsea and only a convincing win will appease the crowd, who are already restless with Abramovich’s ‘interim manager’ appointment.

After the 4-0 win in this fixture earlier in the season, Chelsea should have some confidence that they can come out on top, especially at home. However, they were firing on all cylinders back then and now are a team in no form at all.

As for Nordsjaelland, they know that they only have pride to play for in this one and that they will finish bottom of the group after only managing to accumulate one point in this group stages.

They are heading to the European Champions though, so know just what a victory would do for confidence in the camp and will not be here just to make up the numbers.

The Danish side can come to Stamford Bridge with the pressure well and truly off them. An early goal for the away team would leave the fans’ in West London restless and agitated, so that is what they will be looking to do.

With plenty at stake, it should be a cracking game that gets underway from 7.45PM.
