Chelsea will play tomorrow, Wednsday, against Qabrag FK in a decisive and important match for the Blues to decide their Champions League journey whether it continues or they play in Europa League.
When and where is the match?
When: The match will be on Wednesday, November 22 at 6 PM BST.
Where: Baku national stadium (away)
Who will play?
Chelsea doesn’t have any significant injuries from the last match against West Brom in the Premier League, but we expect Antonio Conte to rotate some players in order to rest them.
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois
Defenders: Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Rudiger
Midfielders: Davide Zappacosta, Drinkwater, N’Golo Kante, Marcos Alonso
Forward: Willian, Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata
Rotating players and Hazard
Antonio Conte will have to rotate some players in order to keep the Premier League title race alive and have the players ready and fit for the Premier League matches due to some injuries Chelsea is suffering from. Eden Hazard may start tomorrow, due to the importance of the match, but Pedro or Willian may replace him and Conte may let Hazard play in the second half if the result wasn’t in Chelsea’s favor.
Chelsea has to win this match, no matter what, in order to secure a place in the group of 16. We expect Chelsea to play their heart off, and score 3 goals and Qarabag FK to score one goal. We expect a 3-1 result.
Chelsea scored six goals in the first last match against Qarabag FK from eight shots on target only.
