Chelsea vs. Qarabag: Champions League – Match Preview

Chelsea’s return to the Champions League is a home fixture against the Azerbaijan outfit Qarabag.

N’Golo Kante scored the winner against his former employers Leicester City as Chelsea continued with their impressive start to the season.

Alvaro Morata scored for a third league fixture in four as Chelsea held on despite Jamie Vardy’s late penalty.

Qarabag have won all three of their league games this season and sit second in their domestic league.

They were given the weekend off and therefore have had very good preparation time for the tie.

Team news
Eden Hazard could be in line for his first start of the season as he has fully recovered from injury.

Gary Cahill has missed the last three league matches due to a domestic ban but will start here.

Davide Zappacosta will be pushing for his full Chelsea debut after coming off the bench against Leicester, but Danny Drinkwater may have to wait.

Richard Almeida is set to be fit enough to start for the visitors in their first ever Champions League group stage game.

Expected starting XI’s
Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Bakayoko, Alonso; Hazard, Fabregas; Morata
Qarabag (4-5-1): Sehic; Medvedev, Huseynov, Rzezniczak, Agolli; Madatov, Michel, Almeida, Qarayev, Guerrier; Ndlovu
