In his press conference ahead of Qarabag’s game against Chelsea, their manager, Gurban Gurbanov said his team aren’t afraid of Chelsea and that they are ready till the end.
He said: “We’re not scared of any of them.
“Even though Chelsea is an icon in the Champions League and have a big chance to win the tournament 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.”
After all said and done, Chelsea carried the day and scored six past the Qarabag defence. Surely, Gurban Gurbanov will now be afraid of Chelsea as the beating they received in Stamford Bridge is their heaviest ever defeating the club has suffered in Europe.
