Chelsea Champions League Potential Group Stage Opponents

Chelsea may be struggling in the Premier League, but it is in the Champions League where they have more recently tasted success.

Just two seasons ago, and with Thomas Tuchel a little over four months in the job, the Blues won their second Champions League crown by beating Manchester City.

Fast forward 15 months, and Chelsea will be hoping Thursday’s group-stage draw gives them a little respite after a humbling start to the new Premier League season, most recently losing 3-0 at Leeds.
