The Brazil international lost his place in the side to Andreas Christensen earlier this month, but he returns as one of four changes from the Blues' last outing.
Manager Antonio Conte has opted to leave leading striker Alvaro Morata on the bench, perhaps with next weekend's league meeting against Liverpool in mind, with Pedro instead expected to lead the line at the Azersun Arena.
Pedro Henrique is absent this evening through suspension, however, with Mahir Madatov - overtaken as the top scorer in the Azerbaijani top flight at the weekend - tasked with creating and scoring goals.
