Torres expecting hostile Spanish test

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has warned his teammates to expect a ferocious atmosphere in Valencia tonight.
The Blues travel to Spain for their second Champions League Group E match, having opened their account this term with a 2-0 win against Bayer Leverkusen at Stamford Bridge.A trip to the Mestalla stadium is a different proposition entirely though, with Torres expecting an intense reaction from the crowd at a ground he's failed to win at as a visiting player.

"It's a very difficult place to play away. Every time I went with Atletico, I can't remember once winning there. Valencia is one of the big teams, but hopefully it can be different this time," Torres told the Chelsea website.
"It is a massive stadium with a very good atmosphere, I played with Atletico as an away team, but also as a home team with Spain, because we used to play there for important games three or four years back. The support there is fantastic.

"It will be very hostile playing there as the away team which is good for Valencia."Los Che have made a solid start to their La Liga campaign, having earned a 2-2 draw against Barcelona in the early stages of the campaign.[sumber]
