Champions League Group E - Shakhtar Donetsk vs Chelsea - October 23rd 19.45 GMT

Tuesday night sees Chelsea take the long trip to Ukraine to visit Shakhtar Donetsk at the Donbass Arena in an interesting looking tie.

Both sides are having impressive domestic campaigns so far this season with both sides remaining unbeaten.

The similarities between the two sides' form also carries over to this Champions League with both sides sitting on four points following a draw with Juventus and a win over Nordsjaelland.

It is difficult to separate these two times on form alone, but the bookies have given the edge to Shakhtar who are available at around 7/5, with Chelsea at 9/5.

Chelsea are coming in to this game following an impressive attacking display against Tottenham Hotspur, where they put four past Brad Friedel.

But Chelsea will surely have one eye on their two games against Manchester United within the space of a few days, the first of which is next weekend.

So will Chelsea keep their heads in the game on Tuesday or will they take the Ukrainian champions too lightly?
