The CHE vs PAO match preview –
Premier League leaders Chelsea will be playing their first game of the UEFA Europa League as they travel to Greece to face PAOK.
Chelsea looks rejuvenated and back to their absolute best since the arrival of their new manager Maurizio Sarri. Playmaker Eden Hazard has been the best player of the Premier League by some distance this season. It is once again happy times for this London side, and they will be looking to make another run at winning the UEFA Europa League.
On the other hand, PAOK have been suffering to get into a roll for a while now. They have won the last two games, but still, the wins weren’t convincing. Maybe, a game of this magnitude and against a team like Chelsea will make them raise their game. Manager Razvan Lucescu has his job on the line and will be rallying his player to give their best from this point forth.
