Chelsea vs Valencia Champions League 2007-08: Preview and Live Score

Chelsea and Valencia are going to face each other in a Champion League 2007-2008 match that has less value to the fans of both sides. Chelsea has already confirmed their entrance in to the next round as the champion of Group B. On the other hand, Valencia has no hope to make it to the knock out stage. With the draw against FC Schalke 04 in the fifth match day, Valencia has lost their last chance to get the ticket of knock out stage of Champions league. So, it seems that the upcoming match between Chelsea and Valencia will bring out less excitement among the fans. The match will be held at the Stamford Bridge on 11 December.

Chelsea has been playing excellently well in Champions league this season though their performance is not so satisfactory in English premier league 2007-2008. Out of five Champions league matches, Chelsea won 3 and could make draw in other two matches. So, still they are undefeated in Champions league. In contrast, Chelsea holds third position in the point table of English premier league 2007-2008. They have already lost two matches in English premier league.

For Valencia, this current season seems to be a bad one. Their performance in both domestic league and Champions league is disappointing. Valencia now stands 7th in the Spanish La Liga 2007-2008 league table. Out of 15 league matches, Valencia lost in 6 matches. For a club with this stature, the record seems to be poor. In Champions League, Valencia lost three out of five matches so far. Thus, Valencia is not out of both league and Champions league competition. It is obviously a frustrating performance for Valencia.

Now, if you ask me that what the attraction of Chelsea vs Valencia match is, I would sum up saying that both the teams can be inspired to play well and show excellent performance. However, Valencia can still qualify for the UEFA Cup winning the last match. So, Valencia must be inspired to play well to defeat Chelsea in order to make their way to UEFA Cup. For Chelsea, they must try their best to show that they deserve to be in the top 16 from this group.

Chelsea will miss their inform striker Didier Drogba because of his injury. He has nine goals in this season. So, his gap might be crucial for Chelsea. There is no other injury news in Chelsea. Forward Andriy Shevchenko and Claudio Pizarro will be playing in the match. In the Chelsea defense Ashley Cole, Ricardo Carvalho and John Terry will be seen whereas in the midfield Claude Makelele, Michael Essien and Frank Lampard are expected to be in the squad. There is no major injury problem in Valencia. Thus, they will include their inform players to win the match and get in to the UEFA Cup.
