Chelsea play one of the tougher fixtures they'll see during the group stage today as they head to the Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk. A result in this game would be huge, as the Ukrainian champions are closing in on a year since the last time they lost a game. They're one of the most underrated teams in the Champions League, and overlooking them would be a serious mistake.
The other game in the group today features our last opponents, FC Nordsjaelland hosting Serie A champion Juventus. Where Chelsea can probably afford a draw today against Shakhtar, any points dropped by Juve may prove crippling in their attempt to advance to the knockout round.
Here are Tuesday's lineups:
Chelsea Subs: Ross Turnbull, Ryan Bertrand, Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, Oriol Romeu, Eden Hazard, Daniel Sturridge
Shakhtar Donetsk: Pyatov, Kucher, Rat, Rakitskiy, Hubschmann, Fernandinho, Willian, Alex Teixeira, Srna, Luiz Adriano, Mkhitaryan
Shakhtar Subs: Kanibolotskiy, Kryvtsov, Stepanenko, Gai, Douglas Costa, Ilsinho, Eduardo
