An unusual encounter at Stamford Bridge

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 729

For Dani Parjeo, the Chelsea-Valencia game this Tuesday will be a special one. It has been almost 8 years since the two sides last met at Stamford Bridge, a duel where the current captain is the only member of the Valencian team who played in the game.

It was the 2011-12 season when Valencia last paid a visit to Chelsea, which, at the time was quite scary. A team of stars, that included Drogba, Lampard, Ramires, Cech... who ended up winning 3-0.

This meant it was Parejo's opening game in the Champions Leagues, after having played in the Europa League the previous year with Getafe. In which, Parejo was not as important as he will be in Tuesday's game.

The midfielder is the pillar of the Valencian team, who are currently going through a dangerous crisis after the sacking of Marcelino and the team´s distrust in the new project, with Celades as the new manager.

Parejo played 12 minutes in the last game at Stamford Bridge. He was a substitute for Tino Costa, in his first season with Valencia, since then, he has started to break out and 6 years later, he is the leader of the team.
