Chelsea: Rising Beast of the UEFA Champions League

In the UEFA Champions League, Chelsea is in the group H. In this group they are ranked second, but they are neck to neck with the top team that is Valencia. They both played a total of 6 matches. As a matter of fact, they both also won 3 games with two draws and one loss. Chelsea advanced to the knockout phase with Valencia.

In the knockout phase of UEFA Champions League, the teams play against each other over two legs. The first leg match for Chelsea was not in their favor at all. The first leg was played between Chelsea vs Bayern Munich with some online betting sites placing various odds to see how will progress through to the quarter finals. However, the second leg match which was scheduled for the 18th March 2020, will need to be played at a different date as a result of the Corona virus which has placed all sporting events to a grinding halt!
