In the second round of the group stage will meet Sporting and Chelsea. In my opinion this is one of those games where the whole world will be playing to win Chelsea but it does not seem as if the guests will easily reach the victory.
Chelsea in the first round made an unexpected glitch and made draw with Schalke at Stamford Bridge. In this game, instead of Diego Costa began Drogba. Mourinho announced that Costa was not ready yet to play two games a week. As Drogba did not traveled with the team, it is expected that a new player of Blues, Loic Remy started this game. Maybe Mourinho little calculates the rotation because it is waiting for the weekend match against Arsenal, and he knows that Chelsea has no chance to drop out of this group, and not to finish second in the group. Chelsea plays really well, Diego Costa scoring wery easy network in the Premier League, and somehow with the ease of play for now. With 30% of the power they beat Aston Villa uncomfortable, so in this match inputs rested. Apart from Drogba who was in the competition, doubtful for this match and Ramires.

Sporting game variable in the championship and in six rounds have not defeat, however, they have only two victories. In the first round against Maribor, points were lost in the last minutes of the match as the heart Maribor pulled stitch. It is certain that they don’t have nothing to say in this game, there are Nani who played better, Slimani, Kapel so this is a respectable team that should not be underestimated so easy. Sporting in Europe has not lost the season 2010/2011 or 16 games after losing to Brondby. I believe they will do their best to lose this match.
I think it will certainly give Chelsea a goal, but that the Portuguese are able to give at least one team in London. A knowing Mourinho and his experimentation, I would not be so easily dare to play to win Chelsea, to me as a much better bet seems that both sides can not reach the goal.
