Chelsea travel to Spain to face Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium on Wednesday night, in what is a massive Champions League clash for both sides.

German referee Felix Zwayer will take charge of the game. The German recently took charge of England’s 5-3 Euro 2020 victory over Kosovo in September. His last Chelsea game was in April when we beat Slavia 1-0 in Prague in the Europa League quarter-final.

Sascha Stegemann from Germany is the VAR.

With three teams tied on the same number of points in Group H, the stakes are high, and Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas is surprisingly tipping Valencia to get the win.

Nicholas said in his prediction for Sky Sports: “This is a very good game. Valencia beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are much improved since and you could see that against Manchester City.

“This is the most exciting Chelsea team I have seen. It does not have the same quality as the one which involved John Terry, Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard, but they are far more exciting to watch.

“This is another cracker. These two will go through, but Napoli do not lose many games. They are still unpredictable in terms of their defence. They are powerful but, no matter who the manager is, Napoli do like to get at you and take a risk or two.”
