Chelsea take on Basle on Wednesday 18th September, 2013, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.

Having failed against the second-best team in Liverpool on the weekend Chelsea now take on the best team in Switzerland in their opening Champions League group game. Having played a massive number of games last year the Blues clearly decided reinforcements were needed over the summer, and it is now the season is truly underway that the strength of their squad should tell.

Basle are a very good team, but regularly have to deal with losing their top players to foreign sides with more cash, and they should put up a spirited by ultimately futile defence tonight.
