UEFA Champions League

More Problems For Chelsea With The Blues Clash Against Lille On Verge Of Being Cancelled

Chelsea's Champions League clash with Lille is at risk of being called off following Abramovic's sanctions by the European Union. The controversial Russian billionaire was on Tuesday sanctioned by the European Union following his engagement with Russian President Vladimir Putin amid Ukraine inversion.

Following the sanctions laid on Abramovic by the European Union, Chelsea could miss playing against Lille as the sanction might affect the club and its involvement in any European competitions. Abramovic had earlier been sanctioned by the United Kingdom government, however, Chelsea was handed special license by the UK government to continue operating. But fears have risen that the license might not be allowed to operate outside England.

Chelsea are currently waiting for official communication from Uefa in order to know their fate ahead of the much anticipated game with Lille. Chelsea were set to play their second leg game against the Ligue 1 club on Wednesday night having an advantage of two goals against the rivals.
