In the absence of DJ Campbell and Charlie Adam, Blackpool will find it difficult to play as they did against Tottenham or even Man United. Nevertheless, the Blues will take their opponents seriously and will try to consolidate their position in the top-four. TheHardTackle presents a comprehensive preview of the match, which will see Chelsea's 4-4-2 take on 4-3-3 of Blackpool.
The pressure was on Germany from the start to win the match to secure a place in the knock out stage of the tournament. The match was played in a much slower pace with both team being cautious about the opponent's counter attacks. But a second half sublime strike from Özil was enough to separate the two teams and helped Germany reach the next round.
