Champions League: Maribor Draw Chelsea, Schalke, Sporting


Emerging from pot number four of the delegated draw, Maribor will face three clubs who are perennially at the top of their respective leagues in England, Germany and Portugal, but are currently not reigning national champions.

Chelsea, last year's semi-finalist and the 2013 winner of the Champions League, is the biggest draw in Maribor's group.

Interestingly, the English club visited Slovenia only a month ago, when it played an exhibition match with Olimpija of Ljubljana.
