Champions League Group Stages Draw And Dates

Champions_League_CFC_PicChelsea were drawn into Group ‘E’ with last years beaten Europa semi finalists FC Basel from Switzerland, along with Shalke 04 from Germany and Steaua Bucharest from Romania.

A good draw for us but the same cant be said for some of the other British clubs ……

…… Man Utd have a fairly decent group and should progress without too much problem, Man City will face a tough task and Arsenal have the group of death!, good luck with that.

Celtic probably wished they stayed at home with the toughest looking group of all.

Match dates as follows:

Wednesday 18 September – home v FC Basel
Tuesday 1 October – away v Steaua Bucharest
Tuesday 22 October – away v Schalke 04
Wednesday 6 November – home v Schalke 04
Tuesday 26 November – away v FC Basel
Wednesday 11 December – home v Steaua Bucharest
