Chelsea have their final Champions League group game this evening against Russian side Zenit St Petersburg away in Russia.

The Blues are currently top of the group and have already secured passage into the next round of the competition. However, a win will be enough for Chelsea to go through as top of the group, regardless of what happens in the other game between Juventus and Malmo.

As confirmed by Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, five Blue players didn’t make it to Russia — Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Ben Chilwell, Trevoh Chalobah and Mateo Kovacic who recently tested positive to COVID-19.

Kai Havertz who was out with a minor injury is back in the team.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.

    Chelsea must win tonight in order to avoid top team like Bayern ,Real Madrid or Ajax .I hope they win and not draw .Zenith has nothing to loose as their loss is not disastrous to them and they have a guaranteed place in Europa league.
