Chelsea will face last season’s Champions League semi finalists Ajax, Valencia and Lille in the group stage of the 2019/20 Champions League.

Chelsea have never met Ajax in European competition but we did play them in a pre-season friendly in Amsterdam in 2010.

Just like Ajax, Lille are a fresh opposition for the Blues but we have faced Valencia three previous Champions League campaigns: the quarter-final in 2007, which we won 3-2 on aggregate, then in the group stages later that same year and again in 2011 on our way to victory in the competition. Frank Lampard scored Chelsea’s goal on our last trip to the Mestalla, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
