Chelsea vs Qarabag
UEFA Champions League Group-stage – Season 2017/18
Date: Tuesday, 12th September 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are welcoming one of the biggest surprise packages UCL q qualifiers had to offer. We are about to see what Qarabag has to offer on Stamford Bridge against Premier League champions.
Chelsea is starting their Champions League campaign in the group stage. Last year, they were eliminated in the 8th finals by PSG.
They had started their domestic campaign with a loss, but three wins followed, so they are currently the third-ranked. They are coming from a win away against Leicester City. Precisely from Leicester comes one of their most recent reinforcement, the midfielder Drinkwater, together with Zappacosta from Torino.
They have been defeated three times at Stamford Bridge in the past two months, and this is a great opportunity for them to improve their home record.
Qarabag entered the most prestigious competition by eliminating Kobenhavn in the play-offs round thanks to the away goal. Last year, Viktoria Plzen eliminated them in the 3rd qualifying round.
They are coming from the third consecutive win in their domestic campaign. Currently, they are the second-ranked in Azerbaijan.

Chelsea vs Qarabag: Prediction
This duel is the perfect opportunity for Chelsea to get off to an excellent start of the group stage. They can gain easily three points and lay a great foundation for their goal difference record.
