Chelsea have not lost a European match at Stamford Bridge in almost two years (Carlo & Manchester United, before you ask). If they manage to continue that streak tonight - oh confidence; I do miss you so... - they shall advance into the next round and likely get to face Ajax Amsterdam who hold a 2-0 away leg advantage over Steaua Bucharest.

In honor of my homies from Prague (and the fact that it's my favorite beer), I polished off a sixer of Pilsner Urquell last night. If Chelsea get their act together, I could see them polish Sparta off for a sixer tonight.

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Cech | Ryan Bertrand, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta | John Obi Mikel, Ramires | Oscar, Juan Mata, Victor Moses | Fernando Torres

Substitutes from: Ross Turnbull, Paulo Ferreira, Ashley Cole, David Luiz, Marko Marin, Eden Hazard, Yossi Benayoun

Sparta Prague starting lineup (4-4-1):
Tomás Vaclík | Matej Hybs, Mario Holek, Ondrej Svejdík, Tomás Zápotocny | Ladislav Krejcí, Lukás Vácha, Marek Matejovsky, Tomas Prikryl | Václav Kadlec | David Lafata

Substitutes from: tba

Strong lineup. Crush them suckers!
