Qarabag vs Chelsea: Premier League preview
Chelsea travel to Baku to take on Azerbaijani side Qarabag on Wednesday night.
A win for the Blues would seal qualification to the round of 16, although a draw will suffice if Atletico Madrid fail to beat Group C leaders Roma
On their last European outing, Chelsea were beaten 3-0 at Roma, their only defeat in their last seven games in all competitions.
Antonio Conte’s side moved above Spurs in the Premier League with a 4-0 win at West Brom on Saturday. Eden Hazard scored a brace while Morata and Marcos Alonso also got their names on the scoresheet.
Despite sitting bottom of the group, Qarabag can still mathematically qualify for the knockout stages.
Don’t disregard Qarabag
The minnows should not be disregarded, however, having taken points in both of their fixtures against Atletico Madrid. Michel gave Gurban Gurbanov’s side a shock lead in Madrid last month, before Atletico levelled in the second half.
Unsurprisingly, Qarabag remain top of the Premyer Liqa table, winning their third consecutive domestic match on Friday night. Brazilian-born Ricard de Oliveira and South African Dino Ndlovu scored the goals in a 2-0 win.
Chelsea won the reverse fixture 6-0 on the opening matchday of the competition. Pedro Rodriguez, Davide Zappacosta, Cesar Azpilicueta, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Michy Batshuayi were all among the goals.
