UEFA Champions League is back! The 2019-20 campaign kicks off today and we can’t wait. There are several good matches lined up for the opening day.

Chelsea will host Valencia at Stamford Bridge in Group H fixture. It will be an interesting battle because both teams haven’t really settled this season. Valencia have won just once in four matches while Chelsea have won twice in five league matches this season.
Chelsea have an upper hand as Valencia have never defeated them in a competitive match-up.

Here are the last five meetings (competitive) between the clubs:
