Chelsea vs Slavia Prague Match Preview
Chelsea have hardly felt like the great favourites on their trip to Prague last week and now host Slavia for the second leg of their Europa League clash looking to prove what they’re made of, set to capitalize on the advantage after a 0-1 win snatched through a late goal from Marcos Alonso.
Maurizio Sarri had to bring out the big guns as his midfield struggled to cope with the high pressure and the attacking line led by Olivier Giroud created absolutely no chances. They now have a disappointing 2-0 loss at Liverpool to bounce back from, where Eden Hazard also felt like the only bright spot through most of the contest.
Slavia’s Jindrich Trpisovsky set up a great challenge but his side failed to take any fruits from it, which makes it really hard to believe they can overcome the Premier League rivals and secure a ticket to the semi-finals. They’ve been a very pleasant surprise even as they beat five-time champions Sevilla before and will surely want to show off in London.
Red and Whites have seen out a 1-1 draw against Sparta Prague over the weekend with a somewhat rotated line-up and travel on Thursday boasting great goalscoring records on the road, which still promises them in a great mood once again – despite a great disappointment in the first leg.
We will stick with Chelsea to secure their ticket to the semi-finals but we expect a more exciting clash between the sides this time around, as we now back a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at an enticing 12/5 with bet365.
Indeed, Chelsea’s defence has been far from the most confident and with more spaces at the back, we hope to see the visitors make it on the scoresheet. With that in mind, we’re also backing goals at Stamford Bridge with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 8/11 with Paddy Power.
