Match background Only this chapter

Chelsea got their first UEFA Europa League group campaign off to a successful start with a 1-0 win away to PAOK and they welcome to Stamford Bridge reigning Hungarian champions Vidi, who lost their matchday one encounter 0-2 at home to BATE Borisov.

Previous meetings
• This is Chelsea's first encounter with a Hungarian club in UEFA competition.

• Vidi's only previous meetings with English opposition were famous ones – a pair of 1-0 home wins in a 1984/85 UEFA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United. The Hungarian side emerged victorious on penalties in front of their own fans and then went on to the final, which they lost to Real Madrid.

Form guide
Chelsea
• Chelsea could finish only fifth in defence of their Premier League title last season, but booked a first ever place in the UEFA Europa League group stage twice over by winning the FA Cup for the eighth time, defeating Manchester United 1-0 in the final.

Highlights: PAOK 0-1 Chelsea

• Although the west London side are new to this stage of the UEFA Europa League, they won the competition on their only previous participation, in 2013, having crossed over to the knockout phase in mid-season from the UEFA Champions League. Their route to the final, where they defeated Benfica 2-1, incorporated three successive 3-1 wins at Stamford Bridge.

• Chelsea have not won a European home fixture since overpowering Qarabağ 6-0 on matchday one of last season's UEFA Champions League, all three games since then having resulted in draws. They have not lost a European group game in west London, however, since Basel defeated them 2-1 in September 2013 – the 11 such fixtures since have yielded eight wins and three draws.

Vidi
• Vidi were Hungarian champions last season for the third time – after 2010/11 and 2014/15 – and were one step away from a UEFA Champions League group stage debut after qualifying wins against Dudelange, Ludogorets and Malmö – three teams who have also found their way into the UEFA Europa League group stage. However, a 3-2 aggregate defeat by AEK Athens ended that part of their 2018/19 European journey.

• Vidi have reached the UEFA Europa League group stage once before, in 2012/13, but progressed no further, losing all three away fixtures against Genk (0-3), Basel (0-1) and Sporting CP (1-2).

• The club's nine European games this season have yielded just two wins, but they are undefeated outside Hungary, drawing all four away fixtures. Victories on the road, however, have generally proved hard to come by, Vidi recording just three in 23 trips over their last eight European campaigns (D10 L10).

Highlights: Vidi 0-2 BATE

Links and trivia
• Vidi skipper Roland Juhász's first match of an eight-year career at Anderlecht was a UEFA Champions League group game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in September 2005. He played the full 90 minutes of a 0-1 defeat in which Frank Lampard scored the only goal from a free-kick.

• Juhász's 94th and penultimate international for Hungary was a 0-4 defeat in the round of 16 at UEFA EURO 2016 against Belgium in which Chelsea's Eden Hazard scored a brilliant solo goal – moments after Juhász had been substituted.

The coaches
• Named as the new Chelsea boss in succession to his fellow Italian, Antonio Conte, in July 2018, Maurizio Sarri is widely considered to be one of Europe's most progressive coaches. He paid his dues in Italy's lower leagues with a multitude of clubs before getting his big break at Empoli, whom he steered into Serie A, before replacing Rafael Benítez at Napoli in 2015. Three seasons in Naples all brought top-three finishes, his entertaining side running Juventus close for the Scudetto in 2017/18.

• His playing career having been curtailed at an early age through injury, Belgrade-born Marko Nikolić began coaching at various levels with local club Rad and graduated to the position of head coach in 2008. His reputation grew year on year during spells with Vojvodina, Partizan and Slovenian club Olimpija Ljubljana, and he was re-employed by Partizan in August 2016, promptly winning the league and cup double. Further success followed in 2017/18 as he masterminded Vidi's Hungarian league triumph in his debut campaign.
