Hey BridgeKids,

Big European news this week!

Chelsea will face Atletico Madrid, Roma and Qarabag in the group stages of the 2017/18 Champions League!

But who have they faced in previous draws and how have they done in the Group Stages?

Let's answer those questions in this week's Friday Facts!

1. This will be Chelsea's 15th appearance in the Champions League group stages.

2. Chelsea's first appearance in the UEFA Champions League was in 1999/00, when they made it all the way to the quarter-finals.

3. The two teams that Chelsea have faced most in the group stages are Porto and Schalke, who they've played three times each.

4. The Blues have only failed to make it out of the group stages once, in 2012/13, but they then went on to win the Europa League that season!

5. Chelsea's biggest win in the Champions League group stage was over Slovenian side Maribor, when they beat them 6-0 in 2014.

The Blues begin their Champions League campaign against Qarabag on 12 September.
