FC Nordsjælland V Chelsea: UCL Preview, Team News, Projected Lineups

Chelsea's defence of the Champions League continues on Tuesday when the Blues travel to Denmark to visit Nordsjælland, who are competing for the first time in this competition.

Roberto Di Matteo's side threw away a two-nil lead to Juventus on match day one, with the Italian champions almost leaving Stamford Bridge with all three points.

Group E could prove problematic for the champions when you consider an ever-improving Shakhtar Donetsk's ambitions to reach the knock-out phase of the competition.

Nordsjælland will not be expected to pick up a solitary point by the majority, which means that anything short of six points from both matches against the Danish champions will put the Blues' progression in jeopardy.

It is therefore imperative that Chelsea take the maximum points from this away trip, where the Wild Tigers will be desperate to impress in their home debut in the group stage.

Check out this in-depth preview of the big match and be sure to join the debate in the comments section below.
