Chelsea vs Slavia Prague

Chelsea return to Stamford Bridge this Thursday where they will welcome Slavia Prague in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final. Chelsea arrive in the driving seat for this fixture after bagging an away goal in the first leg to win 1-0 and should be able to secure a spot in the semi-finals. Slavia Prague were unlucky not to take a draw from their first leg with them creating plenty of chances, but the odds will be stacked against them with them arriving as the away side. The winners of this quarter-final will face either Eintracht Frankfurt or Benfica.

With a one-goal lead, Chelsea look in good shape to move onto the Semi-Finals of the Europa League and now find themselves as favourites to lift the trophy. SkyBet has Chelsea to win the Europa League priced at 6/4. The Blues had been enjoying a winning streak of four games before facing Liverpool over the weekend and suffering a 2-0 defeat. If you fancy Chelsea to pick up another 1-0 win over Slavia Prague, then Bet365 is offering odds of 11/2. SkyBet has Chelsea as the clear favourites for this fixture with odds of 1/3.

Maurizio Sarri will be feeling confident in his side’s chances of securing a win from this fixture with them showing good form whilst playing at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea’s last home defeat came six games ago and since then they have secured four wins alongside one draw. The Blues managed to keep a clean sheet in their previous meeting with Prague and have kept four clean sheets in their last five home games. SkyBet has them to keep another priced at 4/5. Marcos Alonso was the unlikely scorer of Chelsea’s only goal in the first meeting and Betway has the full-back to score again priced at 11/2.

Slavia Prague have left themselves with a hard task as they attempt to overcome the one-goal deficit at Stamford Bridge this weekend where their opponents have been showing strong form. Over the last five games, Prague have secured three wins alongside one defeat and two draws. Their latest fixture saw them go up against Sparta Prague where they picked up a 1-1 draw. If you fancy the underdogs to secure the win in this fixture then SkyBet has them priced at 8/1 to do so.

Although Prague created the majority of chances in the first leg they failed to find the back of the net and you can back them to fail to score again with Bet365 at a price of 5/6. Tomáš Souček bagged his sides only goal in his last outing and now sits on eleven goals for this season. Betway has Soucek to score anytime against Chelsea priced at 8/1.
