Chelsea’s UEFA Youth League fixtures and squad confirmed

The Under-19 competition mirrors the men’s UEFA Champions League format so Andy Myers’s side will be in Group H alongside their counterparts from Juventus, Zenit St Petersburg and Malmo.

The group winner will advance straight to the last-16, while the group runner-up faces a one-leg play-off away at one of the teams to have progressed through the Domestic Champions pathway.

Our campaign gets underway at Cobham next Tuesday 14 September against Zenit with a 1pm kick-off before we travel to Turin to take on Juventus a fortnight later. A double-header with the Swedish side Malmo follows before we finish at home to the Italians and away in Russia.
