The UEFA Champions League draw has taken place and Chelsea have been handed a tricky group. The Blues have been grouped with Atletico Madrid, AS Roma and Qarabag in Group C.

Chelsea could see their former players, Filipe Luis and Fernando Torres in action at Stamford Bridge again while Antonio Rudiger heads back to AS Roma soon after his departure from the Serie A outfit.

Atletico Madrid

Chelsea have faced Atletico Madrid five times in all competitions. The Blues have managed to win just once while losing two.

The biggest (& only) win against the Spanish side was a 4-0 win in 2009. Worst loss was in the 2012 UEFA Super Cup, where Radamel Falcao demolished Chelsea to secure a 4-1 win for Atletico.

AS Roma

Chelsea have gone up against AS Roma four times in their history. The Blues have won twice while the Italian side have won just once.

The biggest win for Chelsea was a 4-1 win the 1965 Fairs Cup. The worst loss was 3-1 in the group stages of the Champions League in the 2008/09 season.

Qarabag

Chelsea have never played Qarabag, an Azerbaijani side playing in the Azerbaijan Premier League. They are not to be taken lightly as they have just overcame FC Copenhagen on away goals rule.
