2019/20 UEFA Champions League
Group stage, Matchday 1
17-18 September 2019
Chelsea will look for a winning start to their Group H campaign in the UEFA Champions League when they host Valencia
at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday 17 September 2019. The match is one of 16 across the continent of Europe, as part of Matchday 1 this midweek.
Chelsea come into the clash on the back of an impressive 5-2 away win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League this past weekend. Forward Tammy Abraham was their star man, scoring his first hat-trick for the Blues.
Valencia, meanwhile, suffered a 5-2 loss away to champions Barcelona in La Liga. Los Che have lost two of their last three matches and will be under pressure to turn around their fortunes under new coach Albert Celades.
In head-to-head stats, Chelsea and Valencia have met in six previous matches. The Blues boast an unbeaten record, with three wins and three draws to their name.
The teams last met in the group stage in 2011/12, playing to a 1-1 draw in Spain before the return game in London ended 3-0 in favour of Chelsea. The Blues went on to win the competition that season.
