Chelsea remain one of only three unbeaten teams in the English Premier League, per Sky Sports, where they sit in third place. But the London side has also won both of its UEFA Europa League Group L matches, and can seize total control of the group on Thursday when the Blues host defending Belarus Premier League champions BATE Borisov in a match that will live stream from Stamford Bridge.
To find out how to watch a live stream of the October 25 Chelsea vs. BATE Borisov UEFA Europa League third-round clash, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. British Summer Time at the iconic 41,000-seat Stamford Bridge stadium in London, England, on Thursday.
Chelsea, however, will be missing their Belgian striker — Eden Hazard — who suffered a back injury during Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Manchester United in the English Premier league, according to Sky Sports. With Hazard’s absence, Chelsea will lose its primary goal-scoring force, as the Belgian has tallied eight times in all competitions so far during the 2018-2019 season.
BATE Borisov have largely dominated the Belarusian top flight since that country’s own Premier League was founded in 1992, a year after the country declared its independence from the former Soviet Union. In that span, the Borisov club has won the league’s title 14 times — including last season, according to Soccerway.com — and currently leads the domestic league by nine points after 24 matches played.
The Thursday game marks a homecoming of sorts for 37-year-old Alexander Hleb, according to the Daily Mail. Hleb played some of his best years at Arsenal, from 2005 to 2008, in a career that has seen him move teams 16 times — including five terms with BATE in his home country.
