It's been an excellent week for the English clubs in Europe so far, and Blues fans will be hoping that trend continues at Stamford Bridge this evening. Having grabbed an away goal in a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture last week, it probably is advantage Chelsea, but not by much, and Eintracht will certainly travel to London with high hopes of progressing to the final.

Antonio Rüdiger, N'Golo Kanté and Callum Hudson-Odoi all miss out for the home side. Eintracht Frankfurt will be without Taleb Tawatha, Marco Russ and Marc Stendera.

Chelsea are on a solid run at present with just the one defeat in their past ten in all competitions and look to have secured their top four finish now. Unbeaten in eight here at the Bridge, they have scored two or more in seven of their past eight here, keeping five clean sheets in the process.

Eintracht in contrast will need to raise their game considerably from the form they have displayed of late. They head here having won just one of their last seven and on the back of a 6-1 battering at Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend. They have however lost only one of six on the road in this competition this season.

The contrast in form between the two sides is too much to ignore here and Chelsea should be able to get the win to see them through.

Prediction: Chelsea 4 - 2 Eintracht Frankfurt
