Home   /   Sevilla v Chelsea- AS IT HAPPENED

Preview

Group E have already their two team qualified for the next round, Sevilla and Chelsea. However, this game means more than it seems as they will both be playing to get the first place of the group.

Both teams have 10 points. Sevilla needs to beat Chelsea in order to overtake them whilst Chelsea would only need a draw with more than zero goals as that would mean that Chelsea has the goal average won to Sevilla. Despite these predicitons, they would obviously need to also win their game next week.

Carlos Acosta will join you during the broadcast of the match.
