Slavia Prague vs Chelsea

Chelsea make the journey over to the Czech Republic to face Slavia Prague at their Sinobo Stadium for their first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals. On paper, this should be an easy win for the English side as they sit as current favourites to win the Europa League, while their opponents sit as the least likely. Slavia Prague will be hoping they can use their home advantage to give them a lead for when they head over to London in the following leg. This fixture will be the first ever competitive meeting between the two sides.

Despite being the huge underdogs for this fixture, Slavia Prague have had a successful season with them currently topping the first division in the Czech Republic. The hosts may be in line to cause another shock result after knocking out Sevilla in the previous round, beating the Spanish side 4-3 in extra time. Since that victory, Prague have secured three wins and one draw following their recent 5-1 win over Dukla Praha. If you fancy the hosts to cause another upset then Bet365 has them priced at 19/4 to secure the win.

Slavia Prague manager, Jindřich Trpišovský will be looking to Miroslav Stoch to provide his sides goal threat in this fixture with the midfielder sat as their top goalscorer with 14 goals this season. Stoch has bagged two goals in the Europa League so far and has a price of 15/4. The hosts proved they have the quality to score when they put four past Sevilla but also showed their tendency to concede. Bet365 has both teams to score priced at 10/11.

Chelsea have been priced as the favourites to secure the Europa League trophy and you can find them with odds of 15/8 on SkyBet. With the Premier League title out of sight for the London side, Maurizio Sarri will be keen on taking his outfit all the way in an attempt to add a trophy to the cabinet. The Blues look in good shape to secure the win with losing just one of their last five alongside four victories they have also secured. Chelsea’s latest fixture saw them secure a 2-0 win over West Ham. SkyBet is offering odds of 8/13 for Chelsea to win.

The Blues have displayed strong form away from home in their last five games, with them picking up four wins and just one defeat. Four of their five away games have seen over 2.5 goals scored and Bet365 has over 2.5 goals priced at 10/11. Eden Hazard continues to show his quality after the forward bagged his 19th goal of the season last time out against West Ham. Betway is offering odds of 7/5 for Hazard to score anytime against Slavia Prague.
