Chelsea play host to Eintracht Frankfurt in the second leg of the UEL semifinals

As the excitement around the Champions League still hasn’t simmered down, we look at another gruelling fixture to ahead to tonight, where Chelsea host Eintracht Frankfurt in the second leg of the Europa League semi-finals at Stamford Bridge. As Chelsea has been guaranteed a Champions League spot for next season, the same cannot be said about Frankfurt, who still has to battle it out for a Champions League spot in the final match-week of the Bundesliga.


TEAM NEWS:

Chelsea:

French mid-fielder N’golo Kante has been ruled out of the game in London tonight but might be eligible for the finals of the competition (if they progress). Players like Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rudiger are ruled out of this season due to respective long-term injuries.


Frankfurt:

The German outfit’s chances of qualifying will certainly take a boost by the involvement of winger Ante Rebic, who served a suspension during the first leg in Germany. The team has also received a much-needed motivation through the availability of Sebastian Haller, who has been included in the squad after a late fitness test.


RECENT FORM:

Chelsea: WDDDW
Frankfurt: WDDDL


PROBABLE LINE-UPS:

Chelsea:

Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Emerson; Jorginho, Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek; Hazard, Giroud, Pedro.


Frankfurt:

Trapp; Abraham, Hinteregger, Hasebe; Costa, Rode, Fernandes, Kostic; Rebic; Haller, Jovic.


SCORE PREDICTION: Chelsea 2-1 Frankfurt

Though Chelsea has been underwhelming in terms of performances this season, their home form will give them a lot of confidence ahead of the tie. With a crucial away in hand already, the Blues just need to handle the attacking pressure of the likes of Ante Rebic and Luka Jovic to secure a place in the Europa League final.  Sarri has a chance to field his strongest players available of the game as well, so the tie might be in the hands of Chelsea from the start.
