Chelsea host Hungarian champions Vidi at Stamford Bridge in Group L of the UEFA Europa League this evening.
Chelsea got their first UEFA Europa League group campaign off to a successful start with a 1-0 win away to PAOK and they welcome to Stamford Bridge reigning Hungarian champions Vidi, who lost their matchday one encounter 0-2 at home to BATE Borisov.
This is Chelsea’s first encounter with a Hungarian club in UEFA competition.
Vidi’s only previous meetings with English opposition were famous ones – a pair of 1-0 home wins in a 1984/85 UEFA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United.
The Hungarian side emerged victorious on penalties in front of their own fans and then went on to the final, which they lost to Real Madrid.
Tonight’s match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 with live streaming via the BT Sport app and BTSport.com
