Chelsea enter this unmotivated game, after a foreign defeat, 3-1, in the visit to the Tottenham field. The home team usually acts in a tactical system in 4-3-3, privileging the fast transitions, mainly through the wings, being that the three most advanced players are Hazard, Willian and Morata. However, the local club also gets to practice soccer possession, progressing on the field through short passes. One of the great valences of the local team is the effective way it manages to defend the set pieces. Apparently, the technician Maurizio Sarri will not be able to count on Marco van Ginkel, for being injured.

The PAOK coach must have all players available for this game.
