Thursday, April 11th, 2019 @21:00 Sinobo Stadium Quarter Final Slavia Praha 5.25| Draw 3.80| Chelsea 1.67 Bet Now With Sportingbet Predictions | Betting Tips | Odds | Statistics The tournament underdogs take on the Europa League favourites as Chelsea travel to Prague to face Slavia in the quarter final first leg. Predictions Slavia Prague shocked Sevilla by knocking them out in the round of 16 and now face the favourites for the competition. If the Czech club do go on to win the Europa League this season they will have definitely earned it. A passionate home crowd might be able to help their team here. Chelsea eased through their round of 16 tie against Dynamo Kyiv and looked impressive as they thrashed the Ukraine side 5-0 away from home in the second leg. Even with all his domestic worries Maurizio Sarri will be confident of his team going into this game – and a positive result should virtually see Chelsea through to the semi finals. Slavia were knocked out of the Champions League by Dynamo Kyiv earlier in the season so will be especially wary of their opponents here. But the Prague side made their way through a potentially tricky Europa League group stage before their victories over Genk and Sevilla and will be confident going into this home leg – even if the bookies are not. The betting sites have Chelsea as favourites for the Europa League – and very strong favourites to qualify for the next round. But this first leg in Prague could be tougher than many predict. A Chelsea victory seems likely but possibly only with a score line of 2-1 to the Premier League side. 1×2 Prediction Bet Now With Sportingbet Score Prediction Bet Now With Sportingbet Betting Tips Both teams to score With all the talent at Chelsea’s disposal it would be a real shock if they do not go through from this tie – Slavia will be confident of scoring at home though.

Stats This is the first time that Slavia Prague have reached the quarter finals of the Europa League – but they did reach the last eight of the UEFA Cup in 2000 and the semi finals of the same competition in 1996. Olivier Giroud has not always been respected for his finishing but he is the top goal scorer in this season’s Europa League with nine strikes. Chelsea should ready themselves for a tough match in Prague. The home crowd will make it hard for the visitors – and Slavia have committed the most fouls in the competition this season. It is not surprising that Olivier Giroud is the top goal scorer when you consider that Chelsea have made the most attempts on target in this season’s Europa League.
