UEFA Champions League: Chelsea vs. Marseille Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Chelsea vs. Marseille Live Stream: Chelsea’s clash with Olympique de Marseille for Matchday 6 of the Champions League may be a meaningless fixture, but it has special significance for Didier Drogba.
The 32-year-old Ivorian striker will be back at Stade Velodrome where he is likely to be given a warm reception from fans of his former club. Drogba, who moved to West London for a record-breaking fee of 24 million pounds in 2004, spent just one year with Marseille, but achieved heroic status among supporters with 32 goals in 55 games and was named France’s player of the year.
“It’s going to be a fantastic moment, said the Chelsea talisman. “It’s funny because I only played one year in Marseille but the feeling between the fans, the city, and me is unbelievable.”
With the Blues already confirmed as Group F winners (5 straight victories), manager Carlo Ancelotti has decided to rest a some of his important players. Marseille have also clinched qualification to the next round and therefore it would be little surprise if coach Didier Deschamps opted to rest some of his stars for tonight’s clash.
