Chelsea travel to face Sevilla in Champions League Group E on Wednesday night

(ES Composite)

Chelsea head to Spain tonight for a top-of-the-group clash with Sevilla having already secured a spot in the Champions League knockout stages.

The Blues collected 10 points from their opening four games in Group E to reach the last-16 with two fixtures to spare, which will give Frank Lampard an opportunity to rest some key players in what has already become a draining schedule.

Though Sevilla have also sealed a spot in the next round along with Chelsea, there is still first place to play for - and with both teams on 10 points, the winner of this game could bag themselves a favourable last-16 draw.

Tonight’s match is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off.

The game will be held behind closed doors at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.

Sevilla vs Chelsea prediction: 0-0 draw

With both sides having already qualified for the knockout stages, this could well be a shootout for top spot - but it is more likely to be used as a chance for both coaches to rotate their teams - and they would probably shake on a point right now.
