For many, the duel between Slavia Prague and Chelsea FC is the most unlikely of the four pairings in the quarter-finals of the Europa League. If you take a look at the odds for the overall winner in this competition, the English are comparatively clearly in the lead, while the bookmakers are the least trusted the Prague players the title in the Europa League. Actually, the Czechs in the round 16 with the Sevilla FC eliminated no one less than the record winner in this competition.
The Londoners may, therefore, warned that winning the Europa League would be another way to play again in the Champions League next campaign after qualifying for the Premier League is still shaky. In this aspect, in the game between Slavia Prague and Chelsea, the prediction is not necessarily the tip for the Czechs - quite apart from the already weak rates for this.
Despite the 127th anniversary of Slavia Prague and more than 114 years of Chelsea FC, there has not yet been a clash between these two teams in European competition. The English have just under 100 European Cup encounters more under their belt than the Czechs, which overall balance is still negative. From 164 games in European competitions, Slavia Prague could win only 59 and lost 62 as well.
Chelsea, on the other hand, it looks different: The Blues come to the event with 134 wins in 251 games with only 65 defeats. Against teams from the Czech Republic, the Blues is still without defeat but has also won only three of the previous six encounters for themselves.
Both coaches can according to the current state send their desired elf on the pitch. Slavia Prague will start with the confidence to not have lost against record winner Sevilla in the return leg and to have scored a total of six goals against the Andalusians. In addition, the Czechs look at only one home defeat in the entire season.
Chelsea, on the other hand, is aware of both the opponent's home strength and his own, so the Londoners would certainly not be completely dissatisfied with a draw at least one goal, even if the English claim is, of course, to win in Prague as well.
