Qarabag FK boss Gurban Gurbanov "not scared" of facing Chelsea

Qarabag FK manager Gurban Gurbanov insists that the club are "not scared" of facing Chelsea in the Champions League this evening.

Qarabag FK manager Gurban Gurbanov has insisted that his players are not worried about the threat that Chelsea pose ahead of this evening's Champions League match at Stamford Bridge.

The Azerbaijani club are underdogs heading into the meeting against Antonio Conte's side, who were absent from the competition last season after failing to qualify.

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.

"We're not scared of any of them," ESPN quotes Gurbanov as saying. "They have one of the best coaches in Europe and they have some of the best players in Europe.

"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.
