Holders Chelsea will be looking to post their first European win of the new season when they travel to Copenhagen to take on Danish champions and Champions League debutants Nordsjaelland.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7:45 pm BST. Live coverage will be available on Sky Sports 2, Sky Sports HD 2 and Sky Sports Red Button.


The Blues have had a fantastic start to their Premier League campaign, winning five out of the six games played. Roberto Di Matteo's side are currently on top of the league table, with 16 points - four ahead of the Manchester clubs.

Nordsjaelland, on the other hand, have had a tough time in their domestic title defence. The Tigers sit third in the Danish Superliga table, after 11 games, and are already six points behind leaders Copenhagen.

Both sides had disappointing results in their Champions League opener this season, with Chelsea surrendering a two-goal lead at home to draw Juventus and Nordsjaelland losing 0-2 at Shakhtar Donetsk.

Nordsjaelland's home ground Farum Park has a capacity of just 9,800 and hence the club will play their Champions League home matches at Copenhagen's Parken stadium.

Team News

Nordsjaelland: Coach Kasper Hjulmand has no fresh injury worries heading into his side's first ever Champions League home game, as striker Joe Sise is the only sidelined player in his squad.

Chelsea: Di Matteo has left Daniel Sturridge out of the squad that travelled to Denmark due to concerns over the striker's lingering hamstring issues. Captain John Terry is available after serving his two-match European ban, for the red card at Barcelona in last season's semi-final, while his fellow centre-back David Luiz is a doubt for this clash, after picking up a knock against Arsenal at the weekend.

Frank Lampard is expected to return to the Blues' midfield after being left out of the starting line-up in the last three games. Wing-backs Cesar Azpilicueta and Ryan Bertrand also have a good chance of starting the game.

Probable Line-ups:

Nordsjaelland (4-2-3-1): Hansen; Parkhurst, Okore, Runje, Mtiliga; Stokholm, Adu; Lorentzen, Christensen, John; Beckmann

Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Terry, Bertrand; Mikel, Lampard, Mata, Oscar, Hazard; Torres
