Valencia proved in the first leg against Chelsea that they don’t need to play well to win a game.

The Spanish side took all three points at Stamford Bridge back in December, and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed that he’s expecting a difficult game from a well organised side at the Mestalla Stadium.

Chelsea arrive at this game knowing that a draw will put qualification in their hands as the Blues will host Lille in their last game and the Chelsea manager has done his homework, telling the media all he expect to see from the home side in the game on Wednesday.

Lampard said: “I expect a very organised team, a team with quality in attacking areas, the two strikers and the wide players they have. My feeling having played at this stadium, it’s not just this team, it’s the support and the atmosphere when they come together and they’re playing well, it’s a difficult game for everybody. I expect a difficult match.

“Champions League games can be a battle in midfield, they can be tight, they can be difficult, but you have to be clinical in both boxes, particularly when there is so much at stake and the match is tight.”
