Gurbanov accepts that the Chelsea team is filled with talented players, but he has insisted that Qarabag will put up a good fight as they attempt to put some points on the board in Group C.

"Even though Chelsea is an icon in the Champions League and have a big chance to win the Champions League this season, the team is ready and we're going to play until the end.
"We know Chelsea are going to make us be defensive. That doesn't mean we're going to spend 90 minutes in defence. We're going to attack as well."
Atletico Madrid and Roma round off the group.
