After missing out on Champions League football last season, the Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are excited to have European football back at the Bridge.
Last week’s six-nil demolition of Qarabag was the perfect fixture and result to ease their way back into Champions League football. Although tougher tests await with this weeks away match to Atletico Madrid and Roma on game week three.
Conte massively rotated his team and rested some key players in the midst of their seven matches in 21 days. With news breaking of Diego Costa’s move to Madrid confirmed for January this makes the match up a little more mouthwatering.
Chelsea have David Luiz and Pedro both out injured which will open up a couple of spaces for players to make an impression in what’s likely to be a strong lineup against the Spanish side.
Our Chelsea punters are hoping to keep their rich goal-scoring form up from last week and with this team, it’ll definitely be a battle out there.
