While all European clubs were having international break couple weeks prior now
They have crazy schedule to follow.
This week again top teams are playing UEFA.
Chelsea 2-1 Lille
Liverpool 2-0 Red Bull
Barça 2-1 Inter Milan.
And many more.
By Saturday they have to play their regular match as usual.
As you can see the coaching staff has a lot to do to keep them ready.
Got to say they are not playing for free.
The players are well compensated to showcase their skills.
The problem is their body not able to withstand the continuous abuse.
In the same token only experience gets them further.
Chelsea has been losing in the EPL but winning in UEFA.
I guess the competition is not that immense.
Chelsea will play Bournemouth and I assume a victory is near.
