English club Chelsea is going to face French side Bordeaux on the road in a Group A encounter of Champions League 2008-09 on 26 November 2008. The match will take place at the Stade Chaban Delmas, Bordeaux. Both Chelsea and Bordeaux dropped points this weekend in domestic league and will be looking to back in winning track with the upcoming match. Chelsea is leading the point table in Group A with 7 points from 4 matches, while Bordeaux stands jointly second with Roma with a point less than Chelsea. Bordeaux was thrashed by Chelsea 4-0 at Stamford Bridge in the earlier meeting and Chelsea will be looking to build on that success while facing the French side away.

Match: Bordeaux vs Chelsea; Group A, UEFA Champions League 2008-09

Date: 26 November 2008, Wednesday

Venue: Stade Chaban Delmas, Bordeaux

Kick off: 19:45 BST (British Standard Time)

A victory for Chelsea would ensure them a spot in the last 16, while Bordeaux may not mind getting one point from the match. A victory over Chelsea would provide Bordeaux with lots of confidence and mental strength to bounce back from their recent poor form in French League 1. Last season’s League 1 runner up Bordeaux currently stands at the 6th position in the table with 25 points from 15 matches after losing 5 points in their last two league matches. Most recently, they drew with Stade Rennais 1-1 at home before losing to leader Olympique Lyonnais 2-1 away. So, an inspirational performance is badly needed for Bordeaux and if it comes against Chelsea then it would give an added advantage in their title race in domestic league.

Chelsea’s high-flying form seems to be fading away gradually, given their recent form in evidence. In their last five matches in all competitions, Chelsea could mange to win only 2 games against 2 defeats and a draw. In the previous round of Champions League fixture, Chelsea lost at Roma 3-1. After that, on November 12, Chelsea was crashed out of the League Cup after losing to Burnley in tie-breaker and most recently, they were held to a goalless draw at home by Newcastle United. So, Chelsea has a lot to achieve in the match. The Blues will look to clinch a victory over Bordeaux in what would ensure them a spot in the round of 16 and would help Chelsea recover their lost confidence. So, a lot of things are at stake for both sides ahead of the match.

Though Chelsea is not at their best at this moment, I still think Chelsea is favorite against Bordeaux because the French side is in no better condition after losing 5 points in their last two outings. In a sense, both Chelsea and Bordeaux will look to come back in winning track, seeking for a revamp in their recent poor form. Bordeaux will have home advantage, but still, Chelsea might make it 2-1. Well, that is just a mere prediction. I just hope that football fans would not see another one-sided match like Chelsea’s total domination over Bordeaux in their previous meeting.
