​Chelsea fear players could be denied entry to France for Lille clash

Chelsea are facing concerns regarding their ability to field unvaccinated players against Lille in the Champions League.

The French government has launched a COVID-19 crackdown, which includes a vaccine pass requirement to enter the country.

Athletes are not exempt from such a policy, per the Daily Mail, which could put Chelsea's unvaccinated stars in a spot of bother.

Any Blues players may have until the second leg of their round of 16 tie against Lille on March 16 to get vaccinated.

Lille may also face similar issues, if they have unvaccinated players who leave the country to play Chelsea away from home, and then attempt to re-enter France.
