Chelsea head into this game hoping to keep their unbeaten season intact as they also look to make progress in the Europa League.
The Blues hosted the Belarusians 2 weeks ago, and their win on that night started a 4 games winning streak which includes wins over Burnley, Derby County, and Crystal Palace. Maurizio Sarri now has a team of in-formed attackers to choose from and he would be expecting to get another win here.
BATE couldn’t cope with Chelsea’s firepower when they visited London just two weeks back. Ruben Loftus-Cheek was on fire and he scored a hattrick against them.
The Belarusians have since won three local games in a row, but that would hardly prepare them for a game against a team of Chelsea’s quality.
They are currently neck and neck with the other two teams in the group and they would be looking to get a point here to prove that they can qualify as the second best team in the group.
