Chelsea have been tipped as one of the favourites to win the Uefa Champions League this season.
Recall that the Blues were knocked out in the last-16 stage last season by German side Bayern Munich in a game that ended in a shameful 7-1 aggregate.
The Blues have, however, been spectacular this season as they moved to the next stage of the competition, winning Group E ahead of Sevilla, Rennes and Krasnodar.
Chelsea under coach Frank Lampard have remained unbeaten in 14 games and won four of the six group matches finishing just one point clear of Sevilla.
For these reasons, former Manchester United star, Rio Ferdinand believes Chelsea could win the Champions League this season.
“They could be, definitely,” Ferdinand told BT Sport. “They’re a team that are starting to gel together.
According to Ferdinand, Lampard has done very good business this season even though it’s difficult.
Chelsea have now moved to the last-16, we they could be drawn against one of Barcelona, Ajax or RB Leipzig.
The draw is scheduled to be made next week and the Blues will be hoping for the best.
Chelsea last won the Champions League in 2012 and ever since then, they have not made it to the finals.
