Welcome to the main event of the night, Havant & Waterlooville vs. Torquay United!
But if you can tear your attention away from that FA Cup 4th Round Qualifying replay, you might find yourself watching our beloved Blues take on Swedish champions Malmö FF in the Champions League. Malmö is of course where Nils Holgersson starts his journey, though we will be halfway through our group stage campaign by the end of this game.
Tuchel has gone for a very strong lineup, with perhaps less rotation (or re-rotation?) as expected. Which way is up? Which way is down? And which way shall lead us to victory?
Hopefully it’s this way.
Here we go!
