Chelsea ‘s mission to defend the Champions League title begins with a win over Zenit St Petersburg.
If you look at the front of the team with two other teammates, Juventus and Malmo, it is unlikely that the team will pass the first round easily.
But from the first game it shows that the big European Cup has never been an easy game. And the road is still a long way to reach the top again.
The more a team that is marked as “old champion”, the more it is not easy. The smaller the team, the more Big teams hope to get down from the throne.
Kicking off the first game with a scorer win is a bit small. But it’s a great confidence boost in going forward and winning the title again.
