Chelsea, Ajax and Valencia are all sitting on seven points going into the last two matches of our Champions League group.

To seal qualification for the knockout stage, the Blues need at least a point at Valencia and a win against Lille at Stamford Bridge in the final group game. A victory over Valencia with at least two goals will seal qualification to the knockout stage with a game to spare.

Chelsea will have to face Valencia later today without Callum Hudson-Odoi. The winger didn’t travel with the squad to Spain. Hudson-Odoi is recovering from a hamstring injury he suffered while on international duty with England.

Lampard told the media about Hudson-Odoi: “Callum Hudson-Odoi is not available. He has been getting better through the week so hopefully he will be for the weekend.”

Meanwhile, Spanish club Real Madrid have shown interest in signing Hudson-Odoi, just months after signing Eden Hazard from Chelsea.

Despite the interest on Hudson-Odoi, Chelsea will be confident of keeping the teenager as he just recently signed a five year contract with the club.
