Olivier Giroud scored the all-important goal in the first leg and is expected to start in the absence of Abraham. Edouard Mendy is expected to start as the goalkeeper with Christensen, Azpilicueta, and Rudiger forming the backline. Chelsea goes into this match with lots of confidence having kept three consecutive clean sheets against the Spanish teams for the first time in their European competition history.
