Where to watch Videoton vs Chelsea live on December 13, 2018

December 12, 2018 By Michelle Bonsu
Chelsea will look to wrap up their group stage campaign with another victory as they take on Videoton. Watch Videoton vs Chelsea on B/R Live in the US and BT Sport 2 in the UK.

Current form: Videoton vs Chelsea

Chelsea come into this game having beaten Manchester City 2-0, and thus ended Pep Guardiola's men's reign at the top of the table. The Blues are also the first team to beat the Citizens in the Premier League this season and got some revenge on the reigning champions for their earlier Community Shield loss at the start of this season.

However, with Tottenham also winning at the weekend, Chelsea have slipped back down into fourth spot, and Sarri clearly will be looking for his team to pick up as many points between now and the restart of European action as possible. With that in mind, he will certainly rotate his squad for this upcoming fixture against Videoton, especially as the London giants have already sealed qualification with 15 points from their first 15 games.

The reverse fixture saw Chelsea grind out a narrow 1-0 win against a Videoton side who defended deep and threw all 10 men behind the ball at Stamford Bridge. So far, they have picked up six points and are third, behind BATE, who will face bottom-placed PAOK at the same time on Thursday evening. Given that the Eastern European side actually have to win this game to have any shot of making it to the next round, they will have to come out of their shell, and that certainly will present a much more open game.

Will Chelsea make it a perfect group stage campaign? Or will they be derailed by an opponent desperate to make it to the next round and spurred on by playing in front of their home fans?

Current position: Videoton vs Chelsea

Chelsea sit on top of their quartet thanks to five wins from their first five Europa League games, and as a result, the Blues have already qualified for the round of 32. Meanwhile, Videoton, who sit in third, could qualify also by pulling off a surprise win against the Blues, but they will need PAOK to do them a huge favor and at least draw Eastern European outfit BATE.

Team news: Videoton vs Chelsea

Chelsea: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Antonio Rudiger, Eden Hazard, Cesar Azpilicueta and N'Golo Kante are among the first-team players who will not be making the trek over to face the Eastern European minnows. Veteran defender Gary Cahill, Victor Moses, and Croatian midfielder Mateo Kovacic are also out due to injury. This means that Sarri will feature a heavily rotated squad, and youngsters like Ethan Ampadu and Callum Hudson-Odoi could get some game-time.

Videoton: The hosts have everyone available - and they will naturally need it if they want to have any shot of causing an upset and joining Chelsea in the round of 32.
