Slavia is definitely a pleasant surprise in the Europa League despite fact that is started its journey in qualifications for the Champions League where was stopped. They didn’t exactly shine in the group phase of Europa League but it did well against Genk away and won 4-1. Two matches with Sevilla are story for itself. They drew 2-2 away and did the same at home, but after dramatic extra time Slavia wins and reach the quarter-finals. At the same time they are leading time in the Czech championship and are semi-finalists of the national Cup. Slavia didn’t lose for a very long time in any competition. It will be weakened now due to absence of suspended midfielder Soucek.

When we put altogether Chelsea showed the most in the Europa League this season. It played six matches in the group phase; it won five and drew one, while in the knockout phase it won all four games. It looked especially impressive against Dynamo Kyiv in the round of 16 when they eliminated the rival by aggregated 8-0. Chelsea faces problems in the Premier League but it seems that are playing better and better after losing to Everton since they won three matches in a row. The Blues win easier at home and now manager Sarri will rest some players given that the national championship is very important for reaching the Champions League.
Probable lineups Chelsea: Arrizabalaga – Zappacosta, Rudiger, A. Christensen, Emerson – Kante, Kovacic, Barkley – Pedro, Giroud, Willian
Slavia Prague vs Chelsea PICK
Slavia has proven itself as a tough rival but another sensation would be perhaps too much for this team. Fact that Chelsea will not play with the strongest team might make the job easier for the home team but even this one seems too strong for leading team of the Czech championship.
