Hyundai today released its ‘Matchday in Europe’ video featuring Chelsea stars Eden Hazard, Willian and Olivier Giroud alongside some of Europe’s top players.

The video, which follows a group of fans from each of Hyundai’s partner clubs: Chelsea FC, AS Roma, Atlético de Madrid, Hertha BSC and Olympique Lyonnais, on their journey to and from a game, features the players from the five clubs taking on a range of supporting roles such as baristas, photographers, club shop assistants and stewards to help enhance the fans’ matchday experience.

In total, 18 players feature across the video, including the likes of Dutch international, Memphis Depay (Olympique Lyonnais); Bosnian Footballer of the Year, Edin Džeko (AS Roma); French World Cup winner, Antoine Griezmann (Atlético de Madrid); Belgium captain, Eden Hazard (Chelsea); and former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winner, Salomon Kalou (Hertha BSC).

They are joined in the video by Javier Pastore, Cengiz Ünder and Bryan Cristante (AS Roma); Stefan Savić and Thomas Lemar (Atlético de Madrid); Olivier Giroud and Willian (Chelsea); Marvin Plattenhardt and Davie Selke (Hertha BSC); and Nabil Fekir, Anthony Lopes, Tanguy Ndombele and Bertrand Traoré (Olympique Lyonnais). 

Personally, when I go onto the pitch I play for the fans. As players we are lucky to have the Chelsea fans because they travel everywhere and always show great support.
