Chelsea fans optimistic about Champions League chances

After a weekend of Premier League action, attention now turns to Europe for England’s elite clubs.

Chelsea, whose sole focus was domestic football last season, are one of the clubs that will get their Champions League campaign underway this week.

Antonio Conte and his men will face Qarabag FK at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night to kick off the group stage of the tournament.

The Blues have very competitive opponents in Group C, with matches against Atletico Madrid and Roma to come.

No disrespect to Qarabag, but they are arguably the easiest team for Chelsea to take on in their opening encounter.

Conte proved in his first season that he is capable of guiding the team to domestic glory, but this will be his first taste of European football with the Blues.

The Italian has experience winning the Champions League as a player when he was at Juventus, but he has never before lifted the trophy as manager.

Ahead of tomorrow’s fixture, Chelsea fans are feeling confident that their team will deliver.
