Chelsea to play Atletico Madrid, Roma and Qarabag in CL

Pedro will play Atletico Madrid, Roma and Qarabag on his return to the Champions League group stage with Chelsea. The draw was made in Monaco on Thursday evening and Chelsea, as champions of England, were one of the top-seeded teams. Blues were grouped with the team from the Spanish capital from Pot 2, the Rome side from Pot 3 and Qarabag from Azerbaijan from the lowest seeds in Pot 4.

 

Chelsea last played Atletico Madrid in the 2014 Champions League semi-final having previously met them in the group stages in 2009. They moved into a new stadium this year having finished third in La Liga last season, and have former Blues Fernando Torres and Filipe Luis in their squad.

Blues played Roma in the 2008/09 group stage. They qualified for this season’s Champions League as Italian runners-up with Antonio Rudiger in their side prior to his summer move to Chelsea.

Qarabag, the Azerbaijan champions, are new to this stage of the competition. They qualified by defeating Copenhagen on away goals in the play-off round last night. They currently play in their capital city Baku.
