Basel – Chelsea

Basel on guard against Chelsea backlash… Disappointed to lose their long unbeaten home record in the UEFA Champions League group stage on matchday one, Chelsea FC will be looking for revenge against FC Basel 1893. Despite losing at home to FC Basel 1893 on matchday one, Chelsea FC travel to Switzerland knowing a draw will be sufficient to book their place in the knockout rounds.

The teams met in last season ‘s UEFA Europa League semi-final, the first competitive encounter between the sides. In the first leg in Switzerland, David Luiz ‘s stoppage-time free-kick earned Chelsea a 2-1 advantage after Fabian Schär ‘s late penalty had cancelled out Victor Moses’ first-half opener.

In the return Chelsea scored three goals in ten second-half minutes, through Fernando Torres, Moses and Luiz again, after Salah had brought Basel level on aggregate on the stroke of half-time. Basel were thus denied becoming the first Swiss side to make it to the final of a major UEFA club tournament.

Chelsea starting 11: 1 Cech – 2 Ivanovic – 24 Cahill – 26 Terry – 28 Azpilicueta – 7 Ramires – 12 Mikel – 8 Lampard – 11 Oscar – 29 Eto’o – 17 Hazard E
