Chelsea vs Eintracht Frankfurt Match Preview
Chelsea always looked like being suited by playing the second match of this Europa League semi-final at home – and they should beat Eintracht Frankfurt to book a trip to Baku.
In our first-leg preview, we predicted the Blues might be in for a tricky night in Germany but that an away goal to keep them right in contention could make all the difference when the tie was completed at Stamford Bridge this Thursday.
We were correct up to a point, inasmuch as Chelsea fared better than anticipated by holding Frankfurt to a 1-1 draw – and they rewarded our 10/11 bet on them to score the last goal as Pedro equalised the deftly-taken headed opener from impressive striker Luka Jovic.
Frankfurt faded in the second half and looked tired, and there was further evidence that a busy season may have caught up with them when they were thrashed 6-1 by Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday, with all the goals being scored in the first 36 minutes!
For Chelsea, this game will be all about staying solid at the back, because what they cannot afford is a repeat of two of their last three home matches in which they conceded two or more goals.
But Maurizio Sarri’s side have plenty of attacking threat too and it would be a shock if they failed to reach a potentially all-English showdown for the trophy in Baku on May 29.
