The former Stamford Bridge favourite, who won the Champion League with them in 2012, is certain to get a hero’s reception from the travelling fans as well as the home ones on Wednesday.

He is also guaranteed a big hug from mentor and ex-boss Jose Mourinho before and after the game, whatever happens.

The striker, 35, said: “I will be playing two home games this time.”

And when he returns to Stamford Bridge for the second leg it will, he admits, be like coming back to a home he never wanted to leave.

“I wanted to finish my career at Chelsea, but the club wanted to bring new blood into the group,” Drogba added. Mourinho said: “It’s a strange feeling.

“Knowing him well you know that we won’t be friends during the game.

“We will be big friends and there will be big respect before and after but not when the game is going on.”
