African fans predict another clean sheet

Our latest Play Predictor guests from the Zimbabwe official supporters club are backing Edouard Mendy to continue his fine form by keeping a third consecutive clean sheet against Krasnodar.

This season Blues fans can compete with our guests and each other while testing their knowledge in our Play Predictor game on The 5th Stand app. The game is available to play for every Chelsea fixture, including domestic and European cup matches, and there’s the chance to win incredible prizes throughout the season.

As we travel to Russia for our first away trip of this season’s Champions League campaign, our guests on Play Predictor are the Zimbabwe official supporters club, represented by their club secretary Benson Chiguri. Founded in 2017, the Zimbabwe group keep the Blue flag flying high in the African country and raise money for charity through football matches against local supporters clubs from our Premier League rivals.

Benson has clearly been impressed our defensive displays over the last week, following back-to-back clean sheets against Sevilla and Manchester United. He is predicting that Mendy will remain unbeaten again, for the third game in a row, when we face Krasnodar on Wednesday, but this time with a win to go with the clean sheet.

You can see the rest of Benson’s predictions below…
