FC Schalke 04 vs Chelsea

Chelsea hosts Schalke 04 on Wednesday to kickoff the Champions League season for both teams.

During last season's Champions League, Chelsea defeated Schalke 3-0 in both matches during the group stage. Chelsea has opened the Premier League season with four victories, including a 4-2 win against Swansea City last week. Striker Didier Drogba, who did not play against Swansea because of an injured ankle, trained with the team Tuesday. His status for Wednesday's game is uncertain.

Schalke is off to a 0-1-2 start to the Bundesliga season. Last week they lost 4-1 Mönchengladbach.
