Latest: Chelsea’s Champions League group opponents revealed

Chelsea will face Atletico Madrid and Roma in the Champions League group stage this season.

The Blues return to the competition are a one-year absence as Premier League champions, following Antonio Conte’s record-breaking debut term at the Stamford Bridge helm.

Paris Saint-Germain knocked Chelsea out of the last-16 stage in their previous two attempts and were eliminated at the semi-final stage to a Diego Costa-inspired Atletico Madrid the season before in 2013-14.

Conte & Co. were among the Pot 1 seeds having won the English top-flight last season and drawn into Group C. Atletico Madrid were the first opponent drawn, followed by Roma and then Qarabag.
