Chelsea will take on Maribor in Group G Champions League clash at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday (21 October) evening.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7:45pm BST. Live coverage is on ITV1 and UTV. Radio commentary of the match will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Chelsea come into this game after they maintained their unbeaten run in all competitions following their 2-1 away victory to Crystal Palace. Brazil international Oscar scored from a free kick before summer signing Cesc Fabregas scored a brilliant goal in the second half.

The west London club drew their opening Champions League clash against Schalke before winning the second group stage fixture 1-0 against Sporting Lisbon. The momentum is on Chelsea's side and their manager Jose Mourinho will be hoping for another win in the European competition on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Maribor are unbeaten in this season's Champions League after their first two matches against Sporting and Schalke ended in a draw. They have picked up two points, something that was not expected before the start of the tournament.

Both games ended in a 1-1 draw and share equal number of points with the Bundesliga outfit. Chelsea lead the table with four points after two matches and a victory for the visitors at Stamford Bridge could see them go above the Premier League leaders.

The Manager's View

Jose Mourinho: "They have two points. They are unbeaten in the Champions League. I think in this moment people will have thought they would have zero points but they got one point against Sporting and they went to Germany and they got exactly the same result as we got against Schalke, only ours was at Stamford Bridge."
