Maribor vs. Chelsea: Lineups and first half discussion

The next chapter of Chelsea's Champions League adventure will be written in Slovenia, where they take on Maribor on Wednesday. The meeting between the two clubs at Stamford Bridge was a fairly one-sided affair, with the Blues winning by a somewhat ridiculous 6-0 scoreline.

While the Blues can potentially advance to the knockout round today, Jose Mourinho will focus only on what he's got control of. Winning tonight's match will put the Blues in a fantastic position, and even with a big game against Liverpool this weekend, Mourinho has selected a very strong side to chase the three points. Here's who he'll be going with this evening:

Chelsea XI: Cech, Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry, Luis, Fabregas, Matic, Schurrle, Willian, Hazard, Drogba

Chelsea Bench: Courtois, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Oscar, Salah, Costa

Maribor will counter with the following:

Maribor XI: Handanovic, Stojanovic, Rajcevic, Arghus, Viler, Ibraimi, Mertelj, Filipovic, Sallalich, Tavares, Zahovic

As always, please keep things civil, and don't link or direct to illegal streams. Enjoy the match.
